** Pork & Marinade Recipe Ingredients**

  • 1 ½- 2 lb. pork tenderloin, cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
  • 1 14-oz can unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ c. lime juice
  • 2 T. soy sauce

  • 2 T. fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 t. 5 Spice seasoning
  • 1 T. Sriracha

Combine all marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Remove ½ cup marinade for basting the pork while on the grill. Add the cut pieces of pork and marinade to a Ziploc bag and mix to coat. Refrigerate for 8 – 24 hours.

Remove pork from marinade. Wipe off excess marinade and skewer the pork between 12 skewers.

Heat grill on medium-high. Oil grates and place kebabs on preheated grill. Cook for 4-6 minutes and turn over and baste with reserved marinade. Cook for another 4-5 minutes until done.
