This recipe was inspired by Arnold from church. He was sitting at our table for the church Mother’s Day lunch and we naturally started talking about food! He said this was his go-to seasoning combination for shish kabobs so of course we had to try it for ourselves and it was a winner! This flavor combination also works with chicken thighs.

Ingredients and Tips for the best Pork Kabobs:

  • We purchase our pork tenderloin at Costco. They seem to have the best pricing and the meat is consistently great quality.
  • You can substitute the Italian seasoning for dried parsley if that is what you have on hand.
  • We suggest applying the dry seasonings to the meat first to make sure all of the meat is coated and add the oil last to help disperse the onion flavor to the meat. The oil also helps to keep the skewers from sticking to the grill.
  • Allow the skewered pork to come to room temperature about 30 minutes before grilling to ensure a good sear.

How to Trim Silver Skin and Fat From Pork Tenderloin:

For the most tender results (and so the marinade can penetrate the meat), you must first remove the sinewy membrane known as “silver skin” from the pork tenderloin. The silver skin becomes tough and chewy after it is cooked so it should always be removed before cooking. Insert the tip of your knife between the silver skin and meat and slide your knife along the meat while pulling the silver skin and fat away at the same time.
