Glazed Pork and Apple Kebabs

Pork and Apple Kebabs

Main Entree

There is something about the flavor of these charred Gala apples that gives the grilled pork an extra juicy and sweet flavor melody.

Yields: 4 servings

Prep Time: 25 mins

Total Time: 25 mins

 Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. apricot preserves
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 5 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for rubbing
  • 1 tbsp. prepared horseradish, drained
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 1 1/4-lb. pork tenderloin
  • 2 Gala apples, cored
  • 1 small head green leaf lettuce, torn, or 1 5-oz. package mixed greens

 Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, whisk together the preserves, the lemon zest, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, the Dijon mustard, and the rosemary. Reserve all but 2 tablespoons glaze.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, the horseradish, 2 tablespoons apricot glaze, remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the shallot; toss to coat.
  3. Cut the pork into 1-inch pieces. Cut each apple into eight wedges, then cut the wedges in half crosswise. Thread the pork and apples onto eight 8-inch skewers. Rub with oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  4. Grill the skewers, turning occasionally, for 3 minutes. Brush with the glaze and continue grilling, turning and brushing occasionally with the glaze until just cooked through, about 3 minutes more.
  5. Toss the shallots and dressing with the lettuce and serve with the skewers and any remaining glaze on the side for dipping.
