Pork Kebabs with Apples and Potatoes

Print Friendly

Excuse me but, where’s winter?

I’ve looked under the bed, on the side of the house and in my purse and I’m not seeing it. I even looked at our Kansas City long range forecast and there’s like, no sign of the old man.

I’ve always wanted to say “long range.” I feel so grown up!

Usually by now we have 55,000 feet of snow on the ground and the temps are so brutal even our chee chees are iced over. But it’s verging on balmy which means I’m verging on a colossal confusion stroke. And that’s not good for my marriage.

So I grilled kebabs. Rumor has it that it was not on my outdoor grill because I’m lazy and can’t…figure it out. BUUUUUT, I still shaved my legs, wore baby blue flip flops and listened to Dick Dale on repeat.

Hey, if old dude winter chachi face is going to take his time, SO AM I.

Pork Kebabs with Apples and Potatoes:

I promise this is the last time you have to see my jank polish job.

I skewered everything separately because the cooking times can vary per ingredient. I think Rachael Ray told me that in a dream a long time ago.

Remember to parboil your taters, or else that Dick Dale album is going to get really annoying.

I realize that through this post I’ve now jinxed Kansas City. I want to apologize for the snow we’ll experience…through August.

 What it took for 2:

* 2 boneless pork chops, cut into a medium dice
* 20 cherry tomatoes
* 2 cups small red potatoes, parboiled 15 minutes
* 1 apple, cut into a medium dice
* 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 Tbs. honey
* 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
* 8 oz arugula
* 1 lemon
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Skewer the pork onto two…well, skewers. Season with salt and pepper. If you use wooden skewers, be sure and soak them in water for 30 minutes to avoid burning on the grill.

Skewer your tomatoes and apples. Then skewer up your parboiled potatoes.

Skewer this!

Sorry.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, vinegar and a squirt of lemon. Go ahead and toss in a pinch of salt while you’re at it.

Spritz an indoor grill with some cooking spray. Heat to medium-high and arrange the kebabs on the grill. Cook until you get some nice grill marks on all sides, maybe 10 minutes.

Toss the kebabs with wilted arugula and garnish with fresh parsley and a good squirt of lemon juice.

TAKE THAT, WINTER.

    Those potatoes! I need them. Meeker can eat all the pork. We’ll split the apples and tomatoes. This is going to work out reallllly nicely…as soon as we forge our way through the snow to the grill. I should go put on my boots.

    So cute! And I never would have thought of skewering each thing by itself but it makes so much sense, duh!

    Whenever I think of “kebabs,” I start singing this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmDTSQtK20c (at the 2:12 mark). These look like the most beautiful kebabs… in the room. xo.

    I’ll tell you where winter is- here, in D.C.. I woke up to 18 degree weather.

    Btw, I just (don’t know why it took so long!) found your blog, and I’m in love. Great recipes!

    oh oh, I LOVE this, but pretty sure my husband would love this even more. . .

    We here in Europe haven’t seen a sight of him either. So if you see him, please tell him to visit us as well. I really need a winter before moving on to spring and summer…

    These look fantastic! I am ready for summer grilling now :)

    We’re having unseasonably warm winter weather here in western Canada as well, I could probably bust out my BBQ too! But I’d be just as happy to fast forward to summer…the farmer’s almanac predicts a ridiculously cold and snowy stretch coming our way!

    I’m sitting in my home office in Northern CA, gazing out my window at blue, sunny skies. It’s almost 70 here today and gorgeous! I’m down for some grilling too! I’m inspired.

    Is it sad that I laughed out loud upon reading “chee chees”? And I wish we could give you some of our NYC winter because it was 12 degrees this morning here!

  17. Maris (In Good Taste) January 4, 2012 at 9:50 pm #

    These are so gorgeous! Pretty much everything you do is!

    Moving to Portland put me in a funk. Overcast skies with temps between 30-45… want it to snow or turn into summer.

    All I want to eat right now is stews, but I’m at the beach. Because its 90 out. Um slightly cooler weather I normally call “winter”? Anytime you want to show up feel free. In the meantime, I’ll be making kebabs.

  20. Jillian @ Newlybread January 4, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    Love it! It’s summer here too, wore shorts yesterday-yikes! Also, saw your tweet about gourmet chili dogs-and YES, please make them and blog them.

  21. Jillian @ Newlybread January 4, 2012 at 9:59 pm #

    Oh and I don’t think you jinxed it! Winter will come!

  22. Cassie January 5, 2012 at 12:12 am #

    Beautiful kebabs. And this weather can totally stick around!

  23. Jenny January 5, 2012 at 4:21 pm #
