Made these last weekend, very good Di!! I had some thick pork loin chops, so I took two and cut them into kebab size pieces, probably a little less than half called for, about 16 or 18. Marinated them overnight. wonderful taste treat!! all the lovely summer tomatoes and green peppers, love the combination of pineapple and ginger!!and the zing from the chili flakes. Didn't have any canola oil so sub'd with olive oil, worked fine in combination with the balsamic vinegar. These were really outstanding kebabs, thanks for sharing!!!
