Mustard-Rosemary Pork and Apple Shish Kabobs

Ding~ding~ding-We have a winner here folks! Not only is this Pork and Apple Shish Kabob different (apples on the grill?), it's full of big flavors! I chose a spicy brown mustard and it was wonderful, also used fresh rosemary from the garden. This is the kind of meal I just don't want to see end:@)
 Tart Granny Smith apples and sweet Vidalia onions were perfect with the pork. I'll add more onion the next time and note to self: stop adding them to the end of the skewers-they fall off!!! 
The original recipe doesn't call for bell peppers but you'll be glad you added them...
Don't hesitate to fire up the grill and give this tasty recipe a try!

Mustard-Rosemary Pork and Apple Shish Kabobs-from Pillsbury.com
Marinade:
2 Tblsp brown sugar
2 Tblsp prepared mustard-I used spicy brown
2 Tblsp water
1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed-I used 3 tsp finely minced fresh rosemary

Kabobs:
6oz pork tenderloin cut into 12 (1") pieces-I had boneless pork chops in the freezer
1 small apple cut into 12 pieces-red apples would be pretty, I wedged a Granny Smith
1/2 medium onion cut into wedges and separate layers-I used Vidalia
bell pepper cut into approx 1" pieces-optional
  1. Heat grill.
  2. In small bowl mix marinade well, add pork and turn to coat. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  3. Alternate meat and fruit/veggies on skewers. (Soak wooden skewers for 30 minutes in water first.) Reserve marinade.
  4. *While the original recipe doesn't call for any, I gave my kabobs a spritz of vegetable oil before putting on the grill.
  5. Place kabobs on grill over medium heat and brush with marinade. Cook for 8-12 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Turn once half way through cooking and brush with marinade again. Toss the leftover marinade.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  7. Holy Shish-Kabob, Batman...I could make these TONIGHT!! For a change, I have everything in the house, Vidalia onions, peppers, tenderloin, apples...well, except for the rosemary...that is growing outside, on the deck. LOL

    "I used spicy brown" ...why does that not surprise me? *snort*

    Thanks for sharing another winner, Lynn.

    p.s. I use the free photoscape program & it has a 'sharpen' feature as well as a 'bloom' one, that helps me get better results from my pictures, especially the ones I take on cloudy days or in Ohio's winter.
    Personally, I think your photos look wonderful!!

  11. What a delicious combination of flavors Lynn!

    P.S. I use Picasa which is free too, to edit my photos. 95% of my photos look better with edited with "I feel lucky" or auto contrast. Try it for fun :)

  12. This does look so delicious and perfect pork recipe for summer grilling. I mainly use Photoshop to sharpen my photos but Pic Monkey is free and does a wonderful job too.
