Expert Tips

To broil kabobs, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning frequently and brushing with sauce.

Hoisin sauce is a sweet-spicy sauce made from soybeans, garlic and chiles. The thick, red-brown sauce is common in Asian cooking, both as an ingredient and a condiment. In this recipe, hoisin sauce gives barbecue sauce an Asian flavor.

Use thick-cut boneless pork loin chops for these kabobs. Thick pork cubes grill nicely without becoming dry.

Colorful sweet bell peppers make pretty kabobs. In addition to red and green, you can try yellow, orange or purple peppers.
