Fast, Easy, Delicious Dinner: Barbecued Pork and Apple Kebabs

Now that the weather is warming up, take advantage of cooking on the grill. Not only does it get you out in the fresh air, but grilling is a great technique that is quick. Tonight's modern twist on a classic combination: pork chops and applesauce, can be ready in less than a half an hour. To keep it modern, the chops have been replaced with pork tenderloin and the sauce with crisp wedges. The pork/apple combo is then glazed with a glowing barbeque sauce made from 3 simple pantry ingredients. To get grilling,

Everyday Food magazine

1/2 cup apricot jam
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grill
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds (about 1 1/2 inches each) pork tenderloin, halved lengthwise and cut into 16 cubes
1 medium red onion, cut into 8 wedges
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into 8 wedges

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Make the sauce: In a large bowl, combine jam, vinegar, tomato paste, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Assemble 4 long skewers, alternating 4 pork cubes with 2 onion wedges and 2 apple wedges on each (begin with pork and end with apple). Roll skewers in remaining tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Lightly oil grates. Place skewers on grill; cover grill, and cook, turning occasionally, until grill marks are visible, 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Open grill; baste skewers with some sauce, and cook, turning skewers and basting occasionally with more sauce, until pork is no longer pink in the center and is nicely glazed, 4 to 8 minutes more.

Serves 4.

It took no time for me at all to make this! It is soooooo yummy!! I think making these on a weeknight would be manageable. Maybe the prepping can be done ahead of time and when dinner comes around, just throw them on the grill. I kind of altered the sauce a little by adding a little more tomato paste and a couple tablespoons of some good barbecue sauce. Gives it more tang.

I gotta say, it looks great, but I learned yesterday that it takes me FOREVER to get skewers prepared. Don't think I'd try this on a weeknight, but, still, yum!
