Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
pork tenderloin
1 large
green pepper
1 large
yellow pepper
1 large
red pepper
1 large
sweet onion
1 large
lemon
2 Tbsp
oregano, dried
1 clove
garlic
1 tsp
salt and pepper to taste
6 to 8
shish-ka-bob sticks (soaked in water if using wood ones to prevent burning)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut vegetables into 1.5 inch pieces and set aside.
2
Cut meat into 1.5 inch cubes(remove any fat and tendons) and place in container with tight fitting lid.
3
Squeeze lemon over meat. I use 2 if the lemons are smaller.
4
Crush dried oregano in the palm of your hand to release flavor and sprinkle over meat.
5
sprinkle salt and pepper over meat. I do about a teaspoon of each.
6
Crush garlic clove over meat.
7
Drizzle 1/2 cup olive oil over meat. Cover with lid and shake until well coated.
8
Set in refrigerator for 30 min up to two hours. *Remember the acid in lemon juice will start to cook the meat so don't leave it too long.
9
after about 30 minutes or so remove meat from the fridge and skewer meat onto shish-ka-bob sticks alternating with the vegetables.
10
Sear ka-bobs first and then cook over med/high heat on your grill or broil in the oven until the pork is thouroughly cooked - about 15 to 18 minutes. Make sure you watch it closely - I'm going by my grills cooking temperature and time...
I like to serve it with beef bullion flavored rice and a salad or spinich salad.
