"This recipe is inspired by the Cantonese dish Gu Lao Rou, better known here as sweet and sour pork. But instead of serving it with rice, this version takes the classic combination of sweet pineapple, crunchy bell peppers, onions, and pork neck and prepares them as delicious grilled skewers, cooking them up until they are nice and juicy. When preparing the skewers on the grill, it's important to press them down a little so they can touch the hot grill surface and cook more evenly. If you're preparing them in a grill pan, I recommend brushing the skewers with a little oil beforehand."

  • Step 1/3

    Cut pork neck into bite-sized pieces. Also cut 2/3 of the pineapple into bite-sized cubes, set 1/3 of the pineapple aside. Roughly cut one onion and one bell pepper into rectangles. On a skewer, alternate pork with one other ingredient at a time (pork, bell pepper, pork, pineapple, pork, onion, etc.). Do exactly the same for the other skewers until all ingredients are used up.
