Asian Glazed Pork Kabobs

You are going to love these Asian glazed pork kabobs! They’re a little savory and a little sweet and just tangy and delicious. Our family loves serving it up with a side of rice, grilled veggies and fresh grilled pineapple during the summer months. I could grill every night during the summer! There’s nothing better than getting the heat out of the house and smelling the delicious fragrant meat cooking on the grill. We are always experimenting with new grill recipes and this one was a huge winner! Forget the usual burgers and hot dogs and cook these for your next barbecue!

Tips for Perfect Grilled Kabobs

  • To get perfectly cooked meat and veggies, skewer your meat separately than your vegetables. They tend to get done at different times, so this way the meat doesn’t get overcooked, or the veggies are too crunchy.
  • We use plain wooden kabob sticks but you can invest in nice metal ones if you’re going to be doing a lot of skewering this summer.
  • Use foil to keep the wooden skewers from burning up, wrap them in foil.
  • To avoid the meat or veggies from spinning around on the skewer, use two instead of one. The food will stay perfectly in place.
  • Keep extra marinade on hand to brush on the meat during cooking. It gives the meat a beautiful glaze.

Instructions

  • Cut the pork chops into bite size pieces, I like to cut off the excess fat but that is a personal preference.
  • In a medium bowl mix together all the marinade ingredients and pour over the pork chop pieces. Let marinade for at least an hour- the longer the better.
  • Thread the pork onto skewers but don’t throw the marinade away. Allow the uncooked kabobs to sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime, pour the excess marinade into a sauce pan over medium high heat and bring to a boil for a full minute, then reduce to low heat.
  • Grill the kabobs over medium heat, basting generously with the marinade every couple of minutes until fully cooked.
  • We like to serve with a side of fresh grilled pineapple.

  1. 5 stars
    This was so so good I had to double up had lots of kabobs to make, only thing I didn’t double up on was sugar 3/4 cup was plenty and I let my meat marinade two days and it was fantastic πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the comment! Thanks for letting us know about the sugar… great idea! πŸ˜€

  2. Do you use a certain cut of pork chop? Bone-in, center cut boneless, thin, thick? So many choices!

  3. Sounds yummy. Is there anything else I can sub for the sherry, we don’t use alcohol?

    1. You would probably be ok leaving it out. You can get cooking sherry, I’m not sure if there is alcohol in it but all the alcohol cooks out.

    1. Yeah, we got the big thing of pork chops at Costco and there was plenty of marinade to cover it all. But you could always double the marinade or half the amount of pork chops if you want them extra saucy. πŸ™‚
