I love these pork tenderloin kabobs. They are easy to make and delicious to enjoy off the grill. Add a side of grilled fresh vegetables for a complete meal. And if you have the You Have Arrived Grilling Blend use 1 1/2 teaspoons of it in place of the thyme, nutmeg, cloves and cayenne pepper. I know you will love this recipe!
1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cube
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients in a self-sealing plastic bag; seal bag and refrigerate 2-24 hours.
Remove cubes from marinade; discarding leftover marinade. Thread cubes evenly onto four skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for an hour before using to prevent burning). Grill over hot coals 10-12 minutes, turning often, until nicely browned. Serve with hot rice and kabobs of grilled fruit & pepper chunks, if desired.

6 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped bottled roasted sweet red peppers
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
Drain artichoke hearts, reserving marinade. Stir together reserved marinade and hot pepper sauce.
Place chops in a shallow baking dish. Pour the pepper sauce mixture over chops; turn chops to coat. Let stand for 30 minutes, turning chops occasionally. Drain chops, discarding marinade.
Meanwhile, to prepare relish, chop artichoke hearts and combine with tomatoes, red peppers, olives and jalapeño. Set aside. Place chops on a kettle-style grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 3-4 minutes; turn chops and grill for 3-4 minutes more or until just done. Serve the relish with pork chops.
