Pork Kabobs with Orange and Thyme
Prep time 10 min
Total time 45 min
Serves about 4 people
This recipe uses pork, but you can also use chicken or lamb.
If you are going to use wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 min before grilling.
¼ cup fresh orange juice plus 1 tablespoon freshly grated zest, and orange wedges for garnish
5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme plus sprigs for garnish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, coarse salt and ground pepper
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 ¼ pounds boneless pork loin, cut into 1 ½ inch cubes
1. Whisk together orange juice and zest, garlic, thyme, mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Whisking constantly, pour in oil in a slow, steady stream; whisk until emulsified. Add pork; toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let pork marinate 20 min at room temperature.
2. Heat a grill or grill pan until medium-hot. Thread 5 or 6 cubes of pork onto each of 4 skewers; season with salt and pepper. Discard marinade. Grill pork, turning occasionally, until cooked through and slightly charred, about 12 min. Garnish with thyme and orange wedges.
