Shashlik (Pork Shish Kabobs)
This pork shish kabobs recipe is my take on Caucasus shashlik! Adding veggies creates a ready-made meal that you can cook on the grill.
- 2 lbs boneless center-cut pork loin chops
- 3 colored bell peppers cut into 2-inch cubes
- 1 large red onion cut into 1-inch chunks
Mix together the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Cut each boneless center cut pork chop into 6-8 cubes. Transfer pork and marinade to a Ziploc bag. Cut each boneless center cut pork chop into 6-8 cubes
Squeeze air out of bag and seal. Massage pork with marinade and marinate overnight or 4 hours minimum in refrigerator.
Preheat grill to 400°F. Remove pork from marinade and discard marinade. Alternately skewer bell pepper, onion and pork on skewers.
In a small bowl mix together the juice from one lemon (about 3-4 tablespoons), honey and mint. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Set aside. Slice remaining lemons into 1/2 inch thick rings and set aside.
Spray pork kabobs with cooking spray or olive oil to coat, then grill 1-2 minutes per side, or to an internal temperature of 145°F. Grill lemon slices on both sides along with kabobs.
Allow meat to rest 5 minutes, then serve with grilled lemons and a drizzle of honey mint sauce over the top.
