Baked Pork Kabobs

Each year we support a local charity during their fund raiser where they sell case lots of meats like kabobs, sausages and hamburger patties. A portion of the cost of every box sold goes directly to the charity. We usually spend $100 which gives about 4 boxes of meat. Part of last year's purchase included pork kabobs.

The pork kabobs are unseasoned lean pork on skewers. They would be ideal on the indoor or outdoor grill. Plain pork kabobs lend themselves nicely to marinating so in terms of flavour they are quite versatile. I really wanted to used these up as our new pork and beef will be ready within the next month or so. That means emptying down the freezers. We also have started a renovation project so I took a bit of an easy way to prepare the pork kabobs.

I placed the kabobs on a bed of Sweet Bay Ray's honey barbeque sauce in a baking dish then covered with more sauce. Then I covered the baking dish and let sit in the refrigerator for 3 hours before baking at 180ºC until cooked through and sauce was slight caramelized.

The baked pork kabobs came out nice and tender with a lovely flavour. Sweet Baby Ray's honey barbeque sauce has a sweet, tangy and slightly smokey flavour. I had opened the bottle for the ranch pizza yesterday so will be making a couple more dishes to use up the bottle. In general I like to use up any opened, commercially prepared sauces within 5 to 7 days.

I served the pork kabobs with baked potatoes, peas and tomato slices. It was a simple yet tasty meal that allowed us to continue working on our current rennovation project while it cooked. This actually is a huge plus as it is amazing how much can be done in the short period of time a meal is cooking in the background. By the time clean-up for the evening was finished the meal was ready for serving :)
