Pork and Sweet Pepper Kebabs

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.
