Spicy Pork Tenderloin Skewers Recipe

“My healthy prep-ahead skewers are easy to grill at the last minute, making them handy for time-pressed days. Red pepper flakes add a nice bite. Serve with steamed rice or broccoli.” —Dawn E. Bryant, Hershey, Nebraska

"I loved it! To the lady who commented on the heat, don't just cut down on the red pepper. Fresh ginger packs a mighty punch so you might want to cut that down to reduce the heat too. Hope it helps!!"

"Made this last night and I don't think my husband has ever raved as much about a recipe and I cook a lot...the only thing I did different is to use boneless country ribs cubed, and wisked the dressing instead of using a blender...came out great, this is a keeper!"

"The low sodium content really appeals to me!

My husband loves spicy foods. . .Tabasco on almost everything he eats. I can no longer handle the hot stuff so I'd reduce the red pepper.
We'll try this for sure. . .with less red pepper!"

"I prepared and my son grilled these and we all absolutely loved them - we like spicy food though. Maybe pennygirl should cut back on the red pepper flakes....I fix this again any time."
