Paired with an IPA
How is everyone’s week going?! This week is flying by around here, and it’s strange because not a whole lot has happened. It’s been a pretty uneventful week. I’m not complaining though, the faster the week goes by the closer we are to getting rid of this dreary, disgusting, rainy weather we’ve been having here in Colorado.
To say I’ve been hibernating would be an understatement. I’ve literally been curled up in a blanket for 3 days straight. I love that I’m sharing these pork skewers with you today, but it does make me slightly sad that I can’t be grilling today!
Oh well. I’m going to share these bad boys with you anyway! I have a confession to make. I am seriously obsessed with garlic. I mean, this should really come as no surprise as most of my recipes do involve garlic to some extent. It adds so much flavor to the simplest of dishes. I love it best when it’s tossed with some fresh pasta and extra virgin olive oil, but skewered in between pieces of pork tenderloin is a close second.
In this recipe, I’m paying tribute to garlic … and pork tenderloin … and apricot. I cook with a lot of jams in the summertime. I use them in all kinds of marinades. Blackberry and strawberry jam are two of my favorites to marinate in, but when it comes to pork, apricot is my “jam.” ;)
These skewers are heavily flavored with apricot, but the addition of garlic, orange, soy sauce and rosemary brings everything together. These pork skewers will definitely liven things up a bit at your next picnic. Recipe is below! Pair these pork skewers with an IPA and have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! xo
