I had a hard time with this recipe and probably will not make again. In my attempt to make sure that the pork was cooked thoroughly I ended up overcooking both the veggies and the pork. It was salvageable but disappointing. ??????

These were so fun and really good! I had more veggies than I had kabob sticks, so we grilled them up in a grill basket and ate as a side dish to supper the next night - it was really good!

Tenderizes the meat really well - the flavor of the marinade is good, but definitely needs a bit more flavor.

This recipe is yummy, wonderful flavor & I will make it again for sure. I liked the idea of using pork.

I halved this and made it for just myself and my husband AND then a couple weeks later, made it when my parents came to visit. It was a hit both times! I love the versatility of the recipe-- you can use other meat, and you don't have to use all the ingredients for the skewers if you don't want to. This makes a lot, but the leftovers are great as well!

I loved these kabobs. We used steak and various garden veggies we had on hand. Served with brown rice. Very good!

This is a fabulous recipe! And it makes a lot! We made it without the corn (cooked it separately) and without the green peppers (I prefer red peppers). We will definitely make it again this summer.

My family loves these and have requested them again this summer...the corn and pineapple make the kabobs as good as having dessert for the meal! The marinade is made with everyday supplies and really gives everything a nice kick!
