Pork Kabobs With Orange and Thyme

Holy YUMMY!! I found this recipe some time ago in Martha Stewart Living --even the kids were impressed (and that takes somethin'...). So enjoy your grill a few more times before it gets cleaned and stored for the winter! (That is, unless you're lucky enough to live where its warm enough to grill year-round...)

Pork Kabobs With Orange and Thyme

1/4 cup fresh orange juice
plus 1 Tbsp. freshly grated zest
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh thyme
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/4 pounds boneless pork loin, cut into cubes

Whisk together orange juice and zest, garlic, thyme, mustard, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper in a large bowl. Whisking constantly, pour oil in a slow, steady stream; whisk until emulsified. Add pork; toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow pork to marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature. Heat a grill or grill pan until medium-hot. Thread 5 or 6 cubes of pork on each of 4 skewers; season with salt and pepper. Discard marinade. Grill pork, turning occasionally, until cooked through and slightly charred, about 12 minutes.

I doubled the recipe to feed my family and 1 guest.
