  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce

  • 3 tablespoons mirin

  • 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 large red onion, cut into 16 wedges

  • 4 medium nectarines, quartered

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Combine hoisin, mirin and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for serving.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  3. Alternate pork, onion and nectarine pieces on eight 12-inch metal skewers. Brush with oil and sprinkle with pepper and salt.

  4. Grill the kebabs until browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip and brush generously with the hoisin mixture. Continue cooking, flipping and brushing with the hoisin mixture occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 145°F, about 10 minutes. Brush with the reserved sauce before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
