I am a complete sucker for food.
It doesn’t have to be a super fancy meal, but if it’s yummy, GET IN MY TUMMY!! 🙂
There are quite a few foods that I would consider my favorite – lobster (obviously you can’t ever have enough lobster in your life!), steak, french fries, funnel cakes…good thing I don’t have my favorites very often, huh?!
There’s just something about the salty & sweet combo of these Pineapple Teriyaki Pork Kabobs that gets me every time. Oh, add chocolate covered pretzels to that favorites list too!
Salty teriyaki sauce, sweet pineapple, crisp onions and red peppers, and super tender pork…now that’s what a great kabob is made of!

How to Make Pineapple Teriyaki Pork Kabobs
Making these pineapple teriyaki pork kabobs really isn’t difficult. It takes a little time to get everything skewered, but other than that, easy peasy!
Here’s how to make them…
I love using boneless country style ribs for my pork kabobs. Just cut across each strip of meat a few times and you have the perfect kabob portions.
The first thing you need to do is get your pork marinating. I’ve marinated it overnight, and sometimes just a few hours. Either way will be delicious.
I know there are many teriyaki marinades out there, but honestly the only one I’ve ever used is the Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce & Marinade. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it right?
After that it’s time to assemble your kabobs.
I cut up chunks of red peppers, onions, and pineapple. If it’s on sale I love using a fresh pineapple, but if not canned pineapple chunks work just as good.
Then just fill your skewers. I alternate pork and a few veggies, usually fitting about 4 pieces of pork on each skewer. I almost always end up with a few veggie only skewers (you can see them on top in the photo below) which end up just as yummy as the others 🙂
Once your skewers are complete season the pork kabobs with a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder.
Throw them on the grill for about 15 minutes or until pork is cooked all the way through and wah-lah! You have a super delicious and refreshing summer entree!
Make sure when eating your bites include some pork and veggies together to get the full effect…you are going to LOVE these!!
