I’m not a huge fan of pork, but I wanted to make a wide variety of tapas dishes for my guest. I gave my husband the task of grill master for the evening. He was a bit hesitant since he had never grilled pork skewers before. He grilled them to perfection! They came out moist and flavorful (and I didn’t have the chance to brush the barbecue sauce on them). Everyone loved them and there were very few left at the end of the evening!
