Margarita Pork Kabobs



Margarita Pork Kabobs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 pound boneless pork loin, cubed
1 cup bottled Margarita mix (non-alcoholic)
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon parsley, minced
1 large green pepper, cubed
1 large red pepper, cubed
2 ears corn, cut into 8 pieces
small white onions


Combine margarita mix, coriander and garlic. Place cubed pork into heavy plastic bag and add marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes - 2 hours is better.

Blend butter, lime juice and parsley and set aside. 

After pork has marinated, layer pork, peppers, onions and corn on skewers*. Baste with butter mixture while on the grill. Grill for about 15-20 minutes. turning frequently.

Service with rice and a green salad. 

*If using bamboo skewers, soak first for 20-30 minutes to prevent them from catching fire on the grill.

This recipe has been in our family now for 15+ years. I saw it first in a magazine. It's so perfect for summer dining, especially when new fresh corn is available. Also one of our very favorite entertaining menus!

I'm linking up with Designs by Gollum's Foodie Friday.. the perfect spot to refresh and update your cooking!

I'm also linking up to Seasonal Sunday's over at the Tablescaper's. Cya there.
