How to Make Grilled Pineapple Pork & Vegetables

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the pineapple, 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, cumin, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1./4 teaspoon salt in a blender; cover and process until blended.
  2. Place in a large resealable plastic bag; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Drain and discard marinade.
  4. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  5. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145 degrees. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  6. Place vegetables in a grill wok or basket.
  7. Brush with remaining oil; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
  8. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
  9. Cut vegetables into 2-in. pieces.

    If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.
