  • Light a grill. Thread the pork onto 8 metal skewers, leaving a small space between each piece. Brush the pork with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until nicely browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve with cilantro sprigs and grilled flatbread.

Suggested Pairing

This succulent grilled pork calls for a bold beer, like McNeill's spicy ESB (Extra Special Bitter) from Vermont. Or serve a juicy red wine, like Garnacha from Spain's Navarra region.
