Here’s a fantastic recipe to help you celebrate summer: Grilled Bacon Rosemary Pork Tenderloin Kebabs
Hey, it’s my first grilling recipe of the season! And it was a big hit too! This is another recipe I’ve created using Smithfield’s line of already marinated pork. It’s so easy to work with their products because you get to work with pork that already has a base of great flavor because it’s pre-marinated.
Smithfield is currently hosting the Real Flavor, Real Fast contest– challenging you to see what you can do with Marinated Fresh Pork to create a 30-minute meal. To submit your original tip for a chance to win great prizes, go to www.SmithfieldRealFlavorRealFast.com.
This pork tenderloin marinade is “Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper.” Since summer has FINALLY arrived in my part of the world, it made sense to me to utilize my grill for this recipe. Soon we’ll be grilling all summer, so here’s a recipe that will get you started!
For this recipe, I wrapped chunks of the already marinated pork with bacon and skewered them with some zucchini and yellow squash. There’s a sprinkle of fresh rosemary in there, but besides that… the pork already gives the kebabs a ton of flavor so no additional flavorings are needed.
The grill loves these kebabs because that bacon draws the heat in to create a crispy bacon exterior to the pork. The squash has the benefit of taking on some of the flavor from the pork and the bacon.
It’s such a simple recipe for summer grilling- just 4 ingredients!
