Thai Pork Kabobs

(picture of kabobs, but not this exact recipe)

Thai Pork Kabobs

1/e c. reduced sodium soy sauce
2 T. water
2 T. fresh lime juice
2 t. hot chili oil (if not available, combine 2 t. vegetable oil and 1/2 t. red pepper flakes in small microwavable cup. Microwave at HIGH 30-45 seconds. Let stand 5 minutes to allow flavor to develop.)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t. minced fresh ginger
12 oz. well-trimmed pork tenderloin
1 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2-in. pieces
1 red or sweet onion, cut into 1/2-in. chunks
2 c. hot cooked rice

1. Combine soy sauce, water, lime juice, chili oil, garlic, and ginger in medium bowl. Reserve 1/3 c. mixture for dipping sauce; set aside.

2. Cut pork tenderloin lengthwise in half; cut crosswise into 4-in. thick slices. Cut slices into 1/2-in. strips. Add to bowl with soy sauce mixture; toss to coat. Cover; refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours; turning once.

3. Spray grill with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking. Prepare grill.

4. Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade. Alternately weave pork strips and thread bell pepper and onion chunks onto eight 8-10 in. metal skewers.

5. Grill, covered, over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until pork is barely pink in center, turning halfway through grilling time. Serve with rice and reserved dipping sauce.

I came to your page from my reader and was so excited to see this recipe than an annoying thing happened. Music. I love music, don't get me wrong but I have my own on and then I had to mute my monitor until I could find the source.. near the bottom. I would recommend to put your music player near the top because of this. This has been described as the biggest annoyance when it comes to visiting websites and blogs- not being able to find the blaring music players. Very distracting. Most visitors indicated they will leave the page rather then trying to find the source to shut it off. Just a friendly FYI.
