  • Summary

    These delicious kabobs combine cubes of brine-cured pork with pineapple chunks and hot peppers. Brine-curing the pork makes it soft, tender, and juicy. The pork is cut into small pieces so it only needs to be cured for four hours.

    Ingredients

    • 6 cups cold water
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 3 tablespoons coarse salt, plus more for seasoning
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
    • 1 tablespoon allspice berries
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1 3/4 pounds pork loin, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
    • 16 medium jalapenos, or other hot peppers, cut in half lengthwise
    • Spicy Molasses Glaze
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch chunks
