Grilled Pork Kebabs with Honey BBQ Sauce

Grilled Pork Kebabs with Honey BBQ Sauce


  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. granulated onion
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger root,
  • finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp. honey whiskey
  • 3 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 ½–2 lbs. country-style pork ribs, cut into 1½” cubes


Combine spices, red pepper flakes, ketchup, soy sauce, ginger root, sesame oil, whiskey and brown sugar in a large bowl; add cubed pork and let marinate for four to six hours.

Heat an oiled grill over medium-high heat. Remove pork cubes from marinade, reserving marinade; thread marinated pork cubes onto soaked wooden skewers, leaving approximately ¼-inch space between each cube. Grill uncovered for 10-12 minutes, turning every two to three minutes to brown evenly until cooked throughout.

Meanwhile, bring reserved marinade to a boil in a saucepan over mediumhigh heat; boil for two to three minutes, then remove from heat. Serve kebabs with warm sauce. (Boiling the marinade makes it perfectly safe to use.)
