Prep Time:
15 minutes

Cooking Time:
10 minutes


  • 2 x 1-pound Ontario pork tenderloins (silver skin removed, cut into 36 one-inch cubes)
  • 6 x 10-12” metal skewers (if using wood skewers, pre-soak in water for 1-2 hours)
  • 4 Tbsp (60 ml) olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp (2ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2ml) pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) honey
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) BBQ spice (use your favourite for pork)
  • 1 large garlic clove peeled and minced
  • 4 Tbsp (60 ml) finely chopped cilantro)
  • 1 large red bell pepper chopped into 12 one-inch squares
  • 1 large green bell pepper chopped into 12 one-inch squares
  • 1 large orange bell pepper, chopped into 12 one-inch squares
  • 1 red onion peeled and chopped into 12-24 one-inch squares
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) cooking oil

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Mix the olive oil, salt, pepper, lime juice, honey, BBQ spice, garlic and cilantro.
  2. Place the pork cubes in a bowl, toss with olive oil mixture and allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat the grill on high heat and rub grill grates with cooking oil (the honey in the marinade will cause the skewers to stick a little).
  4. Prepare each skewer by alternating 6 pieces of marinated pork with 2 pieces each of red, orange & green peppers and 2-4 pieces of red onion. Place the skewers on a tray and pour any remaining marinade to coat the vegetables.
  5. Place the skewers on the grill for 8-10 minutes, turning every 2-3 minutes until all sides are lightly charred and pork is cooked through (internal temperature of 160°F).

Suggested Serving:

  • Flavoured rice and peas
  • Roughly chopped cilantro
  • Pico de gallo or salsa picante
