Kebabs are my favorite meat to make for a BBQ, but I also like to make kebabs during the week. That is usually not possible, as we have our dinner late afternoon/early evening, and I am not always sure what time hubby would be home to light up our charcoal braai.
A couple of weeks ago, I bought a new toy, and no, this is not a review. I am just showing you what I used to cook these BBQ Teriyaki Pork Kebabs quickly and easily – indoors.
I had been eyeing the Kebaba for a while now and am really glad I finally bought one. The Kebabs only took about 12 – 15 minutes (without having to wait for a charcoal fire!) to grill and there was hardly any mess at all to clean up. The pic on the left is the Kebaba without the outer casing which slips over easily.
Right, I did say this is not a review therefore let’s get on to today’s recipe. The marinade made the Pork melt-in-the-mouth tender whilst still juicy.
I loved the basting sauce, and one batch was more than enough for the 8 kebabs I had, to baste them around three times – which I did at 5 minute intervals.
This recipe is versatile in that you can add whatever vegetables you prefer, as the Basting Sauce goes with just about anything. I have a thing for adding Pineapple to my kebabs, and that worked just fine as well.
