Kenmore Greatest Generation of Grilling Cook-Off entry by Michael J Moscato, Ohio State Fair

September 5, 2013 by Kenmore

My uncle enjoys going on vacation to scuba diving locations. He would take my mother once a year for her birthday present. I learned to scuba dive and save up enough money to go with them a few times. The foods had amazing flavor and this recipe reminds me of those wonderful times. One night we went into town away from the shore to a recommended restaurant. It wasn’t much to look at, but the food was sweet and spiced. I never had cinnamon on meat before but the flavor was remember-able!

0.5 pounds pork tenderloin sliced long ways

1 cup apple sauce

0.5 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoons cinnamon powder

0.5 teaspoons cumin

1 cup coconut milk

2 cup fresh cut pineapple about 1 inch wide

2 apples cut into 8 wedges

1 cup shredded coconut



In a medium mixing bowl, place all marinade ingredients and place into a plastic Gallon size bag. Add the pork strips and marinate for up to 1 hour.


Using pre-soaked bamboo skewers, place in the following order: the pork folded onto the skewer; next place the pineapple, then apple, pineapple and then repeat two more times per skewer.


Place on heated grill on low flame for 22 minutes turning a quarter amount every 5 minutes.


Pour the remaining marinade/sauce onto a small aluminum pan and place on the grill to reduce.


Remove skewer from the grill and place over coconut flakes and cubed canned pineapple. Pour a small amount of the sauce over the kabob and serve.
