Pork

Teriyaki Pork Kabobs

We are going to make Teriyaki Pork Kabobs using country style ribs

Country style ribs are cut from the sirloin or loin end of a pork loin. Typically the ones you buy in a super market are boneless

They are perfect for those people you know who eat ribs with utensils 🙂

I have 3 pounds of boneless country ribs that I’m going to separate into individual strips

Okay, lets work on a marinade

We will need 1 cup of crushed pineapple, 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, 3/4 cup of teriyaki sauce, 1/4 cup of honey, 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, 2 grated garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger and some red food coloring (optional)

You can buy crushed pineapple and separate juice, or you can buy pineapple chunks, blend them and reserve the juice, which is what I did

If using the food coloring add 6-8 drops to the marinade, it does give the pork a great color

Place all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until incorporated

Place the pork strips into a resealable baggie and pour in the marinade

Force the air out of the baggie and seal it

 Lay it flat on a pan and marinate overnight (in fact, I typically marinate these for at least 2 days, time permitting)

Flip the bag occasionally during the marination process

We are going to cook the pork kabob style so soak some skewers in water if using wood, so they don’t just burn up on the grill

Okay, our pork has had a great rest for awhile in a nice tasty bath, so lets drain the marinade into a saucepan

We will bring this to a rapid boil , then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or so and use it to baste the pork while its grilling

I have the grill heated to about 400 F direct heat, so all burners are on

Place the pork on the grates and allow to cook around 4 minutes

Turn (don’t flip) and cook for another 3-4 minutes

Baste with your cooked marinade every time you turn or flip them

Flip them and cook 2-3 minutes

Then turn and cook 2 more minutes, basting, again as you go

Remove from the grill and let the pork rest a few minutes

We served this with our Fried Rice and some duck sauce for dipping!

Ingredients

3 pounds of boneless country style ribs

1 cup of crushed pineapple

3/4 cups of teriyaki sauce

1/2 cup of pineapple juice

1/4 cup of honey

2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce

2 grated garlic cloves

1 tablespoon of fresh grated ginger

red food coloring (optional)

Directions

Separate 3 pounds of boneless country ribs into individual strips and place into a resealable baggie

In a bowl, whisk together 1 cup of crushed pineapple, 3/4 cup of teriyaki sauce, 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, 1/4 cup of honey, 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, 2 grated garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger and some red food coloring (optional)

Pour the marinade over the pork, force the air out and seal.  Lay flat and marinate overnight (in fact, I typically marinate these for at least 2 days if you have the time).  Flip the bag occasionally during the marination process

Soak some wood skewers in water and preheat your grill to 400 F over direct heat (all burners on at medium). Drain the marinade into a saucepan and bring this to a rapid boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or so and use it to baste the pork while its grilling

Place the pork strips on the skewers. Place your pork down and allow to cook around 4 minutes or so.  Turn (don’t flip) and cook for another 3-4 minutes.  Baste with your cooked marinade every time you turn or flip them. Flip them and cook 2-3 minutes, then turn and cook 2 more minutes.  Basting, again as you go.  Remove from the grill and let the pork rest a few minutes

We served this with our Fried Rice (optional)
