Apricot Glazed Pork Kabobs
This fun recipe for summer gatherings is best when you prep the pork with enough time for the fruity marinade to soak in.
- 1 lb boneless pork loin, cut into one-inch cubes
- 1 10 oz jar apricot preserves
- 4 Tbs orange liqueur, or orange juice
- 2 Tbs butter
- Stir together preserves, liqueur and butter, simmer in a small saucepan until butter is melted. (OR combine ingredients in a 2-cup glass measure; microwave on High 1 minute). Place pork cubes in heavy plastic bag, pour 3/4 cup apricot mixture over to coat. Marinate at least 30 minutes.
- Thread pork onto 4-6 skewers, grill over hot coals 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with marinade. Heat remaining apricot sauce to boiling and serve alongside kabobs, if desired.
