I love food served on skewers. They don’t even have to be BBQed for me to love them. A local chef once served deconstructed pizza on a skewer and I was in LOVE! Just imagine it, chunks of pepperoni, cubes of mozzarella, green pepper, onion, tiny tomatoes.. anything you would normally find on a pizza.
I’ve been introducing pork into our diet a bit more frequently lately as the price of everything else seems to be in the increase. Or at least my go-to beef certainly have. My bulk package of ground beef that I used to pay $15 for has increased to over $25 and I’m certainly not getting any more for the price. Ugh. My frugal side has a hard time paying for the ever increasing grocery bill, regardless of how hard I try to cut costs.
That being said, when I found that pork tenderloins were on sale I eagerly brought some home to start experimenting and find some new easy meals I could feed my family. This is the first of the success stories!
