Veggie Pork Kabobs
A refreshing orange glaze perks up these colorful kabobs from Candy Gruman of Tucson, Arizona. "I serve this summery dish with baked potatoes and garlic bread," Candy says. "You could substitute some other vegetables if you like, but these are our favorites."
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.
- 3/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate

- In a small bowl, combine the orange juice concentrate, marmalade and teriyaki sauce. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat. Pour 3/4 cup into another large resealable plastic bag; add peppers and onion. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate pork and vegetables for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for serving.
