My dad created the sauce in this recipe years ago, and I began using it on these kabobs. With three children, I grill often because it's a no-fuss way to put good food on the table.

"Not nearly enough flavor and gave the pork the flavor of canned peas. We fed it to the dog and won't be making it again."
