Recipe Notes

These tender pork kabobs serve up nicely on a bed of Mediterranean Rice and maybe add a little color to your plate with a side of Red Cabbage Slaw.  Enjoy!

Did you know:  The term shish kebab comes from Turkish words literally meaning "skewer" and "roast meat," and it is a signature Turkish meal. Kebabs were a natural solution for nomadic tribes. Unusual meats were marinated not only to tenderize, but also to get rid of some of the gamey flavor.  Well, I'm here to tell you there's nothing "gamey" about these kabobs.
