Awesone Pork Kabob Recipe

It was a bit cold this morning while we did some yard work, but it turned out to be a nice warm, clear day. A perfect day for grilling. I found this recipe for pork kabobs on, and it turned out to be a great one. Real tasty with a nice kick to it! Goes great with some couscous and corn on the side...

Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.

Turn skewers, and baste often with sauce during cooking.
