Marinated Pork and Red Onion Kebabs

"I found this recipe in Bon Appetit several years ago and we really enjoy it. The kebabs need to marinate for at least 2 hours, but they can also be prepared a day in advance."

    What a wonderful recipe! I marinated the pork and onion in a bag for 48 hours. DH then skewered the pork and onion. I loved it. DH and my son didn't eat the onion, but I ate their onions. So tasty. I haven't change a thing in the ingredients. Everything was perfect. Thanks Lazyme :) Made for 123 hit wonders

    Excellent flavor. Well worth making. I grilled the kebabs outdoors, using kebab baskets, and skewers when I ran out of room in the baskets. I preferrred the ones grilled on the bamboo skewers. If you want to add other veggies, i.e. mushrooms, peppers, etc. you might want to use separate skewers or baskets, starting the veggies later so they don't char. Another alternative: use Soy Vay bottled sauce for the marinade. Lazyme, good recipe. Thanks for sharing. . . Janet

    I grilled them and they got really dry. Probably my fault, so I'm not rating it.

    Made for Photo Tag. OH MY WORD! The pork is so tender and not too salty from the soy sauce.Just tons of flavour and the marinade accentuates the luscious flavour and texture of the red onion. We have a winner here People!
