Grilled Orange Thyme Pork Kabobs

Ready in: 30-60 minutes
Serves/Makes: 4


1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
orange wedges for garnish
5 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme, plus sprigs for garnish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/4 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes


Whisk together orange juice and zest, garlic, thyme, mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Whisking constantly, pour in oil in a slow, steady stream; whisk until emulsified. Add pork; toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let pork marinate 20 minutes at room temperature

Heat a grill or grill pan until medium-hot. Thread 5 or 6 cubes of pork onto each skewer; season with salt and pepper. Discard marinade. Grill pork, turning occasionally, until cooked through and slightly charred, about 12 minutes. Garnish with thyme sprigs, and serve with orange wedges.
