Spice-Rubbed Pork Skewers with Tomatoes

Randy Mayor
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 4 skewers)
If using wooden skewers, soak them in about two inches of water for approximately 15 minutes while the grill heats, and pat them dry before adding the meat and tomatoes. This prevents the skewers from burning on the grill.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon chile paste
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
