Don't put away the outdoor grill just yet! You've got to try these Teriyaki Pork Kebabs—they're an easy-to-make sweet, tangy combo of veggies and lean meat.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • 1 4.5-g pkg low-sodium chicken bouillon
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 500 g pork tenderloin
  • 1 green sweet pepper , cut into chunks
  • 12 cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  • In a medium pot, combine rice, water and bouillon. Bring to a boil, reduce to low and cook, covered, for 40 minutes. If using bamboo skewers, soak in water (metal skewers are ready to use as-is).
  • While the rice is cooking, whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, oil, ginger and garlic in a medium bowl. Cut tenderloin into bite-sized pieces and combine in bowl with the soy sauce mixture. Marinate 20 minutes.
  • Heat outdoor grill to medium high. Thread each skewer with about 6 pieces of pork (discard remaining marinade), alternating with chunks of green pepper and cherry tomatoes. Grill kebabs 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
