Grilled Caribbean Pork Kabobs
Caribbean Rub, is an island inspired concoction that adds a slightly sweet and spicy flavor to both pork and chicken. Sprinkle it over chunks of meat, add pineapple, pepper, onions, (or anything else you like), grill and you'll have delicious kabobs in no time.
Serves: ½ cup of rub and 4-6 kabobs
For Caribbean Rub
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar, packed, optional
  • dash cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • dash ground cayenne or other ground hot chile
  • 1 large or 2 small cloves garlic, crushed and finely minced
For Grilled Pork Kabobs
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • ¼ fresh pineapple
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • wood skewers
  1. Cut 1 pound pork tenderloin into chunks, about 1 inch in thickness.
  2. Combine rub ingredients; sprinkle over pork chunks and rub in.
  3. Let meat rest while you cut up fruits and veggies to add to skewers.
  4. Grill kabobs over medium-high heat 5 minutes on each side, turning on all four sides, until cooked through, about 155° degrees on an instant-read thermometer.
I often find that I have extra pineapple, peppers, and onion chunks left after making a few kabobs. Just thread them on a skewer and grill them up!
