The quick barbecue sauce turns into a sweet tomato glaze as it cooks on the grill.

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2004


  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grill
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 1 1/2 inches each) pork tenderloin, halved lengthwise and cut into 16 cubes
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into 8 wedges


  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Make the sauce: In a large bowl, combine jam, vinegar, tomato paste, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Assemble 4 long skewers, alternating 4 pork cubes with 2 onion wedges and 2 apple wedges on each (begin with pork and end with apple). Roll skewers in remaining tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Lightly oil grates. Place skewers on grill; cover grill, and cook, turning occasionally, until grill marks are visible, 6 to 8 minutes.

  4. Open grill; baste skewers with some sauce, and cook, turning skewers and basting occasionally with more sauce, until pork is no longer pink in the center and is nicely glazed, 4 to 8 minutes more.

    Delicious! We loved this! A taste of fall with the convenience of the grill. Will absolutely make this again!

    Absolutely delicious and only took all of 5 minutes to prepare. Will definitely make again! (we served it with grilled corn on the cob)

    This is an easy dinner to pull together, and the glaze is perfect with the apples and onions. I make a succotash as a side dish to round out the flavors and please the family.
