Prep Time: 10 Min

Cook Time: 15 Min


– 2.5 lb Pork Carnita cut (I buy it at Winco) cut into 1in pieces, fat removed – 1 large onion sliced – salt and pepper to taste – 2 cups red wine Sangria

Set the meat up to marinate overnight or at least 4 hours in the fridge. Place the pieces of pork in a large bowl with the sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper and toss everything together to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge.

Step 1

An hour before you’re ready to grill, pour the wine on top of the meat, just to cover. Marinate for 1 hour.

Step 2

I love using a charcoal grill for this as I always think it adds the best flavor and gives the best char marks. Light the charcoal and allow them to heat until the coal turns white.  If using a grill, preheat the grill to medium/high heat.

Step 3

Skewer the marinated pork one piece at a time. If using wood skewers make sure to soak them ahead of time so they don’t burn. Using metal skewers helps avoid this.

Step 4

Place pork kabobs onto the grill and cook until meat is no longer pink on the inside.

Step 5

Remove them from the grill and allow them to rest so the juices have a chance to redistribute and settle.

Step 6

Grill pork shish kabobs for about about 10-15 minutes turning few times, or until the meat is no longer pink on the inside, or until the temperature on the inside of the meat is reaching 155-160F.
