Balsamic Pork and Apple Skewers

balsamic pork and apple skewers



  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice , (about 1 medium orange)

  • 3 garlic cloves,, smashed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, (extra virgin)

  • 1 green apple, cut into 1 inch chunks

  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

  • bamboo or metal skewers

  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


  1. Measure vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper into a large zip-top bag. Seal and shake to combine. Cut pork chops into 1 1/2 inch cubes and add to the bag, seal and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to one day.

  2. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes. Remove pork from the marinade, and place the marinade, minus the garlic, in a small saucepan. Heat the marinade to boiling and boil until slightly thickened and reduced by half, about 5-7 minutes. Reserve.

  3. Skewer the pork, along with the apples and onions and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat a grill pan (or your broiler) to medium high. Drizzle pan with a little oil to keep the skewers from sticking. Place the skewers on the pan and grill for 4 minutes. Turn them a quarter of the way around and grill another 4 minutes. Finish grilling the remaining two sides for 4 minutes each, grilling the skewers for a total of 16 minutes. If using your broiler, broil for about 10 minutes total, flipping once. Do not overcook the pork, or it will become tough.

  4. Serve over rice and drizzle with reduced marinade.
