I prepared 10 pork tenderloins, cubed them, marinated them for 24 hours, then threaded them on skewers, I increased the spice mixure (I used the "change size" on the bottom of the recipe to 10). I gave them to my spice-loving DS to grill at his BD bash, I also added in garlic powder to the spice mixture. According to my son they were a huge success, but was informed that they could have been just a little more spicier. Thanks Marg!...Kitten:)
