Teriyaki Pork Skewers
Common pantry ingredients combine to transform pork into an exotic Oriental favorite. Make these on the spur of the moment—they take very little time to put together. Serve with Oriental noodles or hot rice, and a sliced cucumber and carrot salad with rice vinegar dressing.
1 whole pork tenderloin, cut into 6x1/2x1/8-inch strips
2 tablespoons sliced green onion
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon dry ginger
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry
- In medium bowl, stir together green onion, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sherry. Add pork, toss lightly to coat well. Cover and marinate in refrigerate at least one hour.
- Prepare medium-hot fire in grill; remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade, and thread onto skewers.
- Grill directly over fire, turning to brown evenly, for 4 to 5 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.
