Pork and Apple Shish Kabob
This dish is delicious. I love the flavor of grilled apples and onions with tender pork. Plus the glaze over the top gives it a nice sweet and savory flavor. It was a sure hit with the family and I think it would be a hit with you, if you’re a pork and apple kind of person.

I made the glaze to go over the top of the pork which is made with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup and dijon mustard. Simply perfect. For the apples, I was pretty impressed that they still held their firmness and was easily able to cut with a fork. The recipe takes about 10 minutes to make, which is perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
