Cuban Inspired Pork Skewers using GrillMates Applewood Rub

  • Author: Robyn
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


  • bamboo skewers- soak in water for 30 minutes beforehand so they don’t burn on the grill
  • 1 lb cuban pork chunks – (I find these in the Latin market, use something similar if you can’t find)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt, pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick Grillmates Applewood Rub


Cut pork chunks into smaller pieces so they will cook more evenly on the grill. Add olive oil, salt, pepper, juice of the limes, garlic and cilantro and let marinate for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.

After the meat has marinated, add the applewood rub and stir into the meat mixture.

Put meat on skewers.

Grilling Directions:

Grill on a medium/high heat grill for 10 minutes total, turning halfway through, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degress.

I recommend grilling with tri-color pepper skewers for a colorful and healthy meal.
