Lunch is ready! Lean pork tenderloin, savory sweet potatoes and zucchini make great midday meal on a skewer.
Start to Finish:
2 servings (2 kabobs each)
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 lb dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 8 pieces
2 tablespoons water
1/2 lb pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small zucchini, cut into 8 slices
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 1-quart saucepan, heat marmalade, rosemary and salt to boiling, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside.
In 1-quart microwavable bowl, place sweet potato pieces and water. Cover loosely with microwavable paper towel. Microwave on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once, just until potatoes are tender (do not overcook). Drain sweet potatoes; rinse with cold water.
On each of four 10- to 12-inch metal skewers, carefully thread pork, sweet potatoes and zucchini (with cut side facing out) alternately, leaving 1/4-inch space between each piece.
Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once and brushing with marmalade glaze during last 3 minutes, until pork is no pink in center.
