I seen a post earlier for some mango pork kabobs and it sounded good. I did not use the recipe he posted. I modified one I found online.
Marinade
1/2 cup of orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons EVOO
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon chile powder
a little salt and pepper
I marinaded the pork chunks for 2 hours. Chopped up the mangos and threaded on the skewers. I used some Pineapple Head on them. We all loved the pork put the mango was just ok. The little women suggested I use Pineapple next time and it was unanimous with the kids and I. The motion pasted.

    Kokeman, I agree liking mango is a major part to this recipe but before eschewing it I suggest you try the recipe as it was written since it calls for a rub not a marinade on the pork which adds a spicy salty taste. Then the key is the sweet/sour glaze with ginger which really sets off the mango and all the flavors play off one another. That said I am sure it would be good with pineapple as well. Despite the ribbing I got I also recommend a splitter for uniform mango portions.

    The mango was harder to slice than I was expecting. I wanted to try the recipe you posted but I had to help a friend move. I didn't have time to get to the store. I just used what I had. I will have to try it.

    I totally understand time pressures and adjusting recipes on the fly. I do it all the time. But reading your post I realized that the only things that were alike were that you used pork and mango. I encourage you to try it again and stay faithful to the original recipe with the rub or one of your choice, I used Dizzy Dust, not a marinade and prepare the glaze-- it makes the dish. I guarantee it is better than any sweet and sour pork you get in a restaurant!!
