Tender pork is skewered on fragrant rosemary sprigs and marinated in garlic and lemon for a delicious and different kabob.
Quick! Summer is coming to a close. I can see the difference in the light and tell that it’s already getting dark earlier at night.
Get on the grill while you still can. This is a favorite “wow” grilling recipe. It’s always a hit with whoever is having dinner. There’s nothing better than something that’s as easy as it is impressive. The leftovers make a great impromptu pasta dish.
If you have rosemary growing in your yard it’s even easier. If not, just make sure the package you buy has sturdy, woody pieces otherwise it will be difficult to skewer and flip them on the grill.
Here’s a little cheat sheet for you if you’re stuck in the same skewer rut. All of these come together in minutes. Perfect for weeknight or date night. Have you grilled bread? Halloumi? Scampi? You should! Now get out there and grill before it’s getting dark at 5:00pm!
Anything you’re grilling goes great with The Perfect Mojito.
