The ingredients for the marinade were: EVOO, chopped flat leaf parsley, diced onion, sherry wine vinegar, cayenne pepper, cumin, minced garlic (jarred) and smoked Spanish paprika.
The marinade ingredients are ready to mix.
The mixed marinade.
The chunks of pork tenderloin and the marinade are in a freezer bag and will rest in the refrigerator for 8 hours.
The pork cubes are out of the bag and the other two items are red & green bell peppers. In the foreground is a FireWire flexible wire skewer which was the main reason I was having kebobs this night.
The ingredients are threaded onto the FireWire skewer. This process was faster and easier than my flat blade skewers where I often had to make starter slits with a knife. The FireWire held twice the food too!
The FireWire skewer and food is on the Egg. The flexible shape is perfect for the round shape of the Egg. Turning the kebobs was fast & easy, easier than my flat blade skewers.
The kebobs are done and so far the FireWire skewers have been faster & easier to use than my flat blade skewers.
Getting the meat and veggies off the skewers was also quick and easy. They didn’t seem to get stuck on the wire like they do sometimes on flat blade skewers. The kebobs were served with spicy S.W. Rice.
These kebobs were almost an afterthought allowing me to try out the FireWire skewers. This didn’t do these kebobs justice. Although easy this was an excellent kebob recipe, very spicy & flavorful.
There weren’t a lot of ingredients in the marinade but the end results seemed to have more flavors than there were ingredients.
I plan to make this recipe again soon to share with others, as opposed to being an experiment for just my wife and I.

These kabobs were intended more as a trial run for my FireWire flexible wire kabob skewers. I was looking for something quick and simple to use as a test. These kabobs fit the bill nicely. There was a spicy marinade I let the pork tenderloin pieces soak in all day & red & green peppers for the veggies. The FireWire skewers are twice as long as a straight skewer and fit nicely on the Big Green Egg. They were easy to load up, easy to turn, easy to remove the food from & easy to clean (in the dishwasher). I plan to get two more pairs ASAP. The kebobs, which started out almost like an afterthought proved to be excellent. They were melt-in-your mouth tender and had great flavor thanks to the marinade. I liked these so much I am going to make a bigger batch real soon to share with some other folks I know will like them.
