Tequila And Lime Marinated Pork Kebabs

As we know, tequila and lime are a great combination! Use Boston butt (pork shoulder) or boneless country ribs which are simply strips cut from the Boston butt. This cut has great flavor and ample fat to be juicy even if overcooked a bit.


  • Ingredients list
  • 2 lbs. Boston butt or boneless country ribs, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 sweet red onion, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
  • 1 each of green, red, orange and yellow peppers, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
