I’ve been so frustrated lately at how cloudy and rainy it has been! April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, not more showers! My husband said that he thinks it rains more here in Omaha than in Seattle where he grew up. Fortunately, the weather man got his forecast wrong the other day so I jumped at the opportunity to make these succulent pork kabobs using Hormel Foods ALWAYS TENDER® Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin.
My daughter wakes up from her nap around 4:30 which is usually when I’m in the middle of making dinner so having these kabobs take only 30 minutes to make made life between nap time and dinner quite a bit easier. Definitely an easy weeknight dinner. And yes, we eat pretty early but I guess that’s what being a food blogger does to you… as well as a starving and brain exhausted husband.
These were seriously such a cinch to prepare. I love that I didn’t have to take the time to marinate the meat or dirty another dish. I really hate cleaning up raw meat so cutting down on the surfaces it touches makes a big difference to me. I’m a bit of a germaphobe in the kitchen.Pineapple is one of my most favorite things to grill because it gets even sweeter. It pairs perfectly with these veggies and oh so tender teriyaki pork. My husband especially liked it and he’s not a huge pork fan. The next day I gave him the leftovers for lunch and when I asked him how it was he said he wished he could have it every day! That would be the life! Unfortunately he’ll have to stick to his usual peanut butter sandwich, yogurt, fruit, and cheese stick until he starts bringing in the dough.
We absolutely loved this teriyaki flavor but if you’re not much of a teriyaki fan, Hormel carries a bunch of other flavors of marinated pork like Peppercorn, Mesquite, and Mediterranean Herb. They sound so delicious, I want to try them all!!!

Easy Teriyaki Pork Kabobs
- 1 1 pound ALWAYS TENDER® Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin
- 1 red bell pepper cut into 1½ inch chunks
- 1 green bell pepper cut into 1½ inch chunks
- ½ pineapple cut into 1½ inch chunks
- ½ red onion cut into 1½ inch chunks
- Skewers If using wooden ones, let them soak in water for 30 minutes before threading.
- Vegetable oil or cooking spray
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Thread the skewers in whatever pattern you choose. For each skewer you'll use about 4-5 pieces pork, pineapple, and onion and then two pieces of each bell pepper. If you have extra pineapple and vegetables, just thread them on additional skewers. Brush or spray kabobs with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Grill kabobs for 10-15 minutes, turning a few times, until done.
Serve immediately garnished with fresh cilantro. (We enjoyed ours with a side of white rice that had teriyaki sauce on top.)
