Substitute 1-inch red or yellow bell pepper squares if you can't find the mini bells. Wooden skewers need to soak at least 30 minutes before they go on the grill, so plan ahead, if using them. Serve with pancit: 1 1/2 cups thin rehydrated rice noodles, stir-fried in dark sesame oil with 1 cup thinly sliced cabbage and 1/3 cup shredded carrot. Top noodles with 2 sliced green onions.
1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
16 mini bell peppers
How to Make It
Place first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top bag, stirring well. Add pork; seal bag. Refrigerate 1 hour, turning after 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Remove pork from bag, and discard marinade. Thread pork evenly onto 4 (6-inch) skewers; sprinkle evenly with salt. Thread 4 mini bell peppers onto each of 4 (6-inch) skewers. Arrange skewers in a single layer on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Every other online recipe area I use has a link that'll reduce the recipe size for me; e.g., from 6 portions to only 2. And then that figures out the math for me in the recipe. Like 3/4 TB becomes WHAT? I've spent 20 minutes already to see it. Either they don't have it all, or they're hiding it too much. Sorry...math never was my skill. And darned if I want to spend time finding and using a recipe calculator. This is a pain.
VERY tasty! This is a perfect weeknight dinner - not too involved and delicious. I had some Israeli couscous so I prepared that as a side, along with some marinated grape tomatoes. Absolutely perfect - so perfect in fact, we had no leftovers.
The recipe alone didn't interest me. I decided to try it anyway based on the good reviews and I had all of the ingredients on hand (yes, even the mini-peppers as I link to snack on them raw like carrots). This dish was really good, easy, and fast. Had to grill the peppers longer than stated in the recipe to get them charred just right. I served it with plain brown rice. We all enjoyed it, including my 4 year old. I will make it again.
I have to agree; these kebabs are great. I used bamboo skewers and alternated the pork with green and orange pepper chunks and onion wedges. Similarly to previous reviewers, I served them with a simple brown rice pilaf, which was the PERFECT complement. I can't wait to make these again.
This is excellent. I also added an onion that I sliced in half and then in wedges and roasted them with the peppers. I'll be using this marinade throughout the summer on chicken too. We served it with white rice, doubled the recipe and fed nine people. Everyone enjoyed it.
