Moorish Pork Kabobs (Pinchos Morunos)

Pincho, or pinchito, the diminutive, translates as 'little thorn' or 'little pointed stick,' so pincho moruno roughly means Moorish mouthfuls impaled on a thorn or skewer. Of course, the Moors were Muslims and did not eat pork, so Christian Spain took the Arab seasonings traditionally used on lamb kabobs (qodban) and applied them to their beloved meat.

Luv the flavor.

This is a fantastic recipe with a unique flavor. I like to cut up yellow and red bell peppers, mushrooms, and onion and soak them in italian dressing. Then place them on seperate skewers and grill them also. Man what a great flavor combo. UMMM UMMM.

Great flavour

I didn't find these spicy, just very tasty. I've made them with pork shoulder and also with pork tenderloin- both are great but the pork shoulder is fattier so it required a bit more attention when grilling.

Excellent Spicy Pork Kabobs
April 30, 2010
I have prepared these Kabobs many times, and love them. The only deviation from the recipe that I usually do is to use lean, thick cut boneless pork chop instead of pork shoulder. It makes it easier to cube the meat. Beware ! It is very spicy. I like to grill some skewers of cherry tomatoes along with the meat, to cool the tongue. Left-overs can be made into a great chili.
