Total Time:
40 mins

Don't wait until grill season for a sunny supper. Grab a grill pan and make kebabs right on the stove.


  • ¾ cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed

  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), cut into 1 ½-inch chunks

  • 1 navel orange, cut into chunks

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup honey

  • ¼ cup spicy brown mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees; place a baking sheet in oven. Prepare rice according to package instructions. Stir in peas, and heat briefly to warm through.

  2. Alternately thread pork and orange chunks onto eight 6-inch skewers; season with salt and pepper. Heat grill pan to medium; brush with 2 teaspoons oil. Cook half the skewers until pork is opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes per side; transfer to oven to keep warm. Brush grill pan with 2 teaspoons oil; cook remaining skewers.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and mustard; season with salt and pepper. Reserve half of sauce for dipping.

  4. Working in 2 batches, return skewers to grill pan, and heat over high, brushing with sauce, until glazed, about 2 minutes. Serve with rice and reserved sauce.
