Ingredients

1
lb pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
3
tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/3
cup plum sauce
2
teaspoons grated orange peel
1
teaspoon grated gingerroot
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper
16
green onions
4
fresh pineapple spears (6 inch)
Hot cooked instant rice, if desired
  • 1 In resealable food-storage plastic bag or 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, place pork pieces. Pour soy sauce over pork; toss to coat. Seal bag or cover dish. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to marinate, turning or stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix plum sauce, orange peel, gingerroot and red pepper flakes; set aside. Cut green onions into 1-inch pieces. Cut each pineapple spear into 6 pieces.
  • 3 Alternately thread pork, onion (skewered crosswise) and pineapple evenly onto 4 (12- to 15-inch) metal skewers; discard marinade.
  • 4 When grill is heated, carefully oil grill rack; place kabobs on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill over medium-high coals. Brush plum sauce mixture over kabobs; cover grill. Cook 5 minutes. Turn kabobs; brush with sauce mixture. Cook covered 4 to 6 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce mixture, until pork is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining sauce. If desired, serve with hot cooked instant white and wild rice.
