Good morning all,

I have some thick pork loin chops that I'm going to cube and skewer for kabobs tonight. I am looking for some new marinade ideas, something other than the old standby Mojo and others we usually use. Got any good ones to try??? I am going to skewer the veggies seperately but would like to use the same marinade for both.

    This might give you a change in flavor. Great with grilled pineapple.

    Here is a site that has several oriental sauces and marinades. Usually found in most oriental grocery stores. I like to do baby backs with the char sui marinade. Just use the powder like a rub.

    here's one I've done many times, using a recipe from Paul Kirk's book. It turns the loin into those delicious red-tipped pork slices you get on a pu-pu platter. Only better since it's cooked on a smoker. If you wanted to cook the marinade down, it will thicken.

    1/2 cup sugar
    3 Tbs sweet sherry
    2 Tbs soy sauce
    1/2 cup hoisin sauce
    2 tsp minced fresh ginger
    1/2 tsp five-spice powder
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp red food coloring

    1 Mix the sugar into the sherry and soy sauce until sugar is dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.
    2 Paul says he uses it mostly on pork strips and country-style ribs. He marinates those pieces for 2-4 hours. I marinate the pork loin overnight.
    3 Cook to 140 degrees internal temperature.
