Gather your friends and family and fire up the grill – because it’s time to make some delicious chili-lime pork skewers! This delectable recipe will bring all of the flavor to your summer barbecues and wow your guests with its bright flavors and succulent pork. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
2 pounds of pork loin
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 teaspoons of chili powder
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
3 tablespoons of honey
First, cut the pork loin into 1 1/2 inch cubes. Place in a large bowl and add the olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, and black pepper. Toss to evenly coat the pork. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
While the pork is marinating, soak the skewer sticks in water to prevent them from burning on the grill.
When the pork is finished marinating, take the pork cubes and thread them onto the skewers. Place the pork skewers on a hot grill over medium heat. Cover and cook for approximately 8 minutes, flipping halfway through to ensure even cooking.
While the pork is cooking, prepare the delicious chili-lime marinade. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, the juice of two limes, and the zest of two limes until well mixed.
When the pork skewers are finished cooking, remove them from the grill and brush with the chili-lime marinade. Return to the grill and cook an additional five minutes, turning halfway through to ensure even cooking. The marinade will caramelize on the outside of the pork, giving it a delicious sweet-and-sour flavor.
Once finished, serve with grilled vegetables, a side of crusty bread, or your favorite summer salad. Take the remaining lime wedge and squeeze over the finished skewers before serving. Enjoy!
