How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine olive oil, grated lemon rind, salt, pepper, and crushed garlic in a large bowl, stirring well. Add pork; marinate at room temperature 15 minutes, tossing occasionally.

Step 3

Thread pork and bell peppers alternately onto each of 8 (8-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 10 minutes or until pork is done, turning occasionally.

Step 4

Sautéed chard: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Add 8 cups chopped stemmed Swiss chard, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; sauté for 5 minutes or until chard wilts.

Really good recipe. For 2 of us, I had .82 pound tenderloin and I used 1 each red and yellow peppers and it made four skewers.We had one leftover. I marinated longer than suggested and the result was really good flavor. I slivered the garlic and that may have helped

I very much enjoyed these kebabs. Quick and easy. So much so that I think I am making them again this weekend.

Simple but great flavor! I served with grilled skewers of thick sliced zucchini and mushrooms.

A nice easy pork recipe with lots of flavor! The grill was out of gas so I broiled them and I used whole mini peppers instead of slicing up large ones. I will definitely be making this again!

Loved this pork recipe! So simple and quick, and tastes fabulous! Looking at the ingredients, the marinade doesn't look like much. The flavor is wonderful! Minced the garlic and used lemon juice, and still was stellar. Peppers were perfect. Love using our grill in the summer.

These kabobs are great. We have also used the oil mixture on pork chops and boneless chicken breasts. Delicious! Will use regularly.

Fantastic recipe. We have tried the marinade on shrimp, scallops & chicken as well and all are delicious. I make some variation of this recipe at least twice a month especially on those nights when I'm pressed for time. Quick, easy and tastes awesome!

Very good. I added some red onion along with the peppers. Next time I'll add some mushrooms and zucchini to the kebabs. Served with roasted garlic couscous. Quick and easy.

This was great. They were so flavorful and so easy. I used pork tenderloin that I had cut into medallions so all I had to do was just cut them into fourths and put them on the skewers along with fresh mushrooms and home grown red bell peppers. I have added this recipe to my file because I will be making these again.
