Curried Pork Kabobs

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pound lean pork tenderloin cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 bamboo skewers or metal


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate pork overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe). If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling, to prevent burning. In a medium bowl, combine first 7 ingredients (yogurt through ground ginger); blend well. Add pork cubes and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. Preheat outdoor or indoor grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Remove pork from marinade and lightly pat dry with paper towels. Thread pork cubes evenly onto skewers and grill for 10 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through.
