A beautifully complex glaze of Chinese five-spice, rich soy sauce, sweet brown sugar and tangy ketchup lends incredible Asian-inspired flavor to these perfect pork kabobs. It's a fast and easy dish you'll want to try again and again. Soaking wood or bamboo skewers in cold water for 20-30 minutes before use will help to ensure they do not burn on the grill.

Instructions Checklist
  • Grill kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 3 to 4 minutes. Brush with remaining sauce. Turn kabobs; grill 3 to 4 minutes more or until fully cooked. To serve, sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro. If desired, serve lime wedges alongside.

Serving Suggestion:

If you like, serve with cooked vermicelli or angel hair pasta and cantaloupe cut into matchstick pieces. Pass soy sauce at the table.

*Tip:

If time permits, soak bamboo skewers in water before using. This helps to prevent the skewers from burning.
