How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Place preserves in a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir in soy sauce, juice, and garlic. Place 3/4 cup apricot mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag; reserve remaining apricot mixture. Add pork to bag, and seal. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Remove pork from bag, and discard marinade. Thread pork evenly onto 16 (8-inch) skewers. Sprinkle pork evenly with salt and black pepper. Set aside 1/4 cup apricot mixture. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; baste with half of remaining apricot mixture. Grill 3 1/2 minutes. Turn pork over; baste with other half of remaining apricot mixture. Grill 3 1/2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from grill. Brush with reserved 1/4 cup apricot mixture.

My family liked it, but I found the sauce a bit too sweet. I think next time I will add a bit of crushed red pepper, as suggested by the other reviewers.

Didn't like this recipe. There wasn't any flavor. We ate it and the kids dipped their pieces in ketchup. Maybe I did something wrong but I followed the recipe exactly.

Good - easy to prepare, weeknight meal, and my 4 yr old liked the sweetness (me too!). I would have liked to add a little more veggies to the kebabs, which I'll do next time.

I agree with Slurpee, a bit of heat would make this 5 stars. I would love to make this for guests and it was a big hit with the family. I made the nectarine salad as in the photo but added 1 T of peach-infused white balsamic vinegar and used yellow pear cherry tomatoes fresh from our garden. Delish. Cous-cous and grilled zucchini finished the plating. Beautiful and delicious meal and not hard at all to prepare. Thanks again CL!

Add some spice and they are awesome!

These were great! I did add a bit of Sriracha and red pepper flakes to the marinade which I think really made it. Will be added to our regular rotation.
