Pork Kebobs

Herb Grilled Pork Tenderloin is a delicious way to have pork on the grill. But these kebobs are another, and they are so good.  I like pork tenderloin because it is tender, always super flavorful and relatively cheap to buy.  Marinating the pork in Greek yogurt works so well.  The calcium and lactic acid in the Greek yogurt help to break down the protein in the meat making it super tender and moist.

And if you aren’t in to pork don’t worry. Check out this Yogurt Marinated Chicken for a similar recipe and idea using chicken breasts.

  • Plain Greek Yogurt – any fat content will work great
  • Lemon
  • Ground Cumin
  • Ground Coriander
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Pork Tenderloin – you really could use most cuts of pork, I just find this cooks quickly and stays juicy and tender.

How To Make Marinated Pork Kebobs

  • Prepare Marinade. In a large bowl or plastic food storage bag mix together all of the ingredients for the marinade. Once it is smooth and well combined. throw in the cubes of pork and mix to make sure they are coated. Place in the fridge for 1-12 hours to marinate.
  • Make Skewers. Once the pork has marinaded, thread cubes of pork onto your skewers.
  • Cook. Place the pork on a hot grill and cook for about 6-6 minutes per side, until it is cooked through.
  • Make Sauce. Mix all of the ingredients for the sauce together until smooth. Store in the fridge until ready to use. You can make the sauce the day before or while the pork is cooking.

Recipe Tips

  • Fresh Lemon – use fresh lemon juice for the best flavor and results. You really want the zest for the marinade, so take the 2 minutes and juice a lemon.
  • Plain Yogurt – I like to use full fat for marinades, but you can use whatever you have. Plain Greek yogurt is thick and will coat the pork well, all while adding protein.
  • Make Ahead – While you are prepping dinner the night before, get this ready and put it in the fridge for the next night. The longer the pork sits in the fridge, the more tender and flavorful it will be.

How To Store Leftover Pork Kebabs
