Sticky Teriyaki Pork & Pineapple Skewers – Traeger
- 1 lb pork sirloin cubes, each about 1 inch by 1 inch
- 1/2 thick fresh pineapple, cored and cut into bite-size chunks
- 1 cup traeger carne asada marinade, or your favorite teriyaki marinade
- 6 large scallions, trimmed, pale and light green parts cut into 1 inch lengths
- 6 8-inch wooden skewers
Thread a pork cube through the thin side on a skewer, followed by a chunk of pineapple and a piece of green onion; repeat the sequence, using 3 or 4 pieces of pork per skewer. Repeat with the other skewers.
Transfer the skewers to a class pan or pie plate and pour the marinade over them, turning to coat on all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established 4 to 5 minutes. Set the temperature to 450 degrees F and preheat, lid closed for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Drain the skewers, discarding the marinade. Arrange the skewers on the grill grate and grill, turning once for 10 minutes or until the pork is fully cooked.
Transfer the skewers to a platter or plates and serve immediately with some steamed rice.
