Enjoy these 30 Minute Pork and Vegetable Kebabs (with bacon!) grilled or roasted in the oven for a super quick dinner.
Just two days of work left for me before maternity leave! I can’t believe this is really happening so soon. My mom had both me and my brother early, so technically I can go into labor umm, like, yesterday. But I am hoping this baby hangs on for about two more weeks, because I have big plans of relaxing on our (almost) finished patio before our life completely changes. Big plans, I tell ya.
I CANNOT WAIT until we start grilling our dinners out on the patio. Our grill is just waiting to be wheeled out there as soon as it’s finished. Half the reason I wanted a house was so that we had outdoor space and could spend summer evenings outside. I’ve been spending lots of time on pinterest lately looking for awesome new grilling recipes, and also remembering some favorites from other people’s cookouts.
One classic you cannot go wrong with is kebabs. Can anyone tell me why food on a skewer always tastes so good?? These 30 minute Pork and Vegetable Kebabs are an absolute favorite of mine, especially when made with Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet. The Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork makes these kebabs super easy to put together, without needing the think ahead and marinate the pork in advance. Just dice the pork loin and put it on skewers with your favorite grilling vegetables (and some pineapple, if you are into that sort of thing!). The fact that there are bacon bits all over just makes this all the better!
This recipe works awesome both on the grill or roasted in the oven – either way it is super quick and delicious, I can’t think of a better way to get real flavor, real fast. The awesome thing about these kebabs is that they make for a great lunch the next day too – just remove the veggies and pork pieces from the skewer and toss over a salad or into a quick pasta salad with a bit of olive oil. These kebabs taste just as good the next day, which is perfect for us because we try to bring lunch to work every day.
If bacon is not your thing (gwatt??), any of the other Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products would be great in this recipe too – Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet, or the Smoked Mesquite Flavor Loin Filet. All of these (and a bunch of other flavors!) are available at Walmart in the meat aisle, so you can probably go most of the summer and not repeat the same kebab twice.
