Asian Inspired Pork Kebabs #BBQWeek

Welcome to Day 2 of #BBQWeek.  If you missed the giveaway post on Day 1 you can find it along with my Grilled Asparagus Tart from Monday.  You still have time to enter so go do that now while you are thinking about it. I will wait for you.

Yesterday, I shared a recipe for Thai Noodle Salad that was TO DIE FOR!!  Today I am sharing the Pork Kebabs that I had made to go along with that salad. You are going to love them.

While your kebabs are grilling you will whip up a BBQ sauce that is chock full of Asian Flavors.

When the pork is cooked to your desired temperature (I like to serve mine at 140*) you slather it with the sauce and let it cook a couple of minutes until the sauce starts to caramelize a bit.

I want to take a moment to thank Ellen of Family Around the Table for all her hard work on this event.  I would also like to thank Michigan Asparagus for the wonderful gift package that you went and entered at the beginning of this post.  There are a lot of great recipes being shared today and we will be back again on Friday to finish up this party.  You will find links to the other recipes being shared today right below mine.  Happy Hump Day!!!
