Cooking Time: 12 min.

(Makes 2 servings, 2 skewers each)


  • 10 oz. raw pork loin, cut into 12 cubes
  • 1 medium apple (like Braeburn), peeled, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. all-natural tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp. all-fruit plum preserves (or apricot preserves)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)

How to Prepare Your Delicious Balsamic Apple Pork Skewers:

  1. Preheat grill or broiler to medium-high.
  2. Combine vinegar, tomato paste, and preserves in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside.
  3. Place a piece of pork, a wedge of apple, and a wedge of onion onto a skewer. Repeat, and add an additional piece of pork. Each skewer will have three pieces of pork, two pieces of apple, and two pieces of onion. Repeat with three remaining skewers.
  4. Brush skewers with oil; season with salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Grill or broil skewers for 5 to 6 minutes, turning every 2 minutes.
  6. Brush with vinegar mixture; cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, and brushing occasionally with vinegar mixture, until pork is no longer pink in the middle and juices run clear.
