Grilled Pork Loin with Rainbow Root Kebabs

Number of Servings: 10 (320g)
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 2 hours

You don’t need to look for the most colorful root veggies at the farmers’ market to make this dish incredible, but it doesn’t hurt. You might be able to find unique radishes (which are incredibly sweet when roasted) or small salad turnips (which have none of the bitterness associated with their larger relatives).

Tip: If your root veggies are giving your soaked wooden skewers a tough time, microwave them for 2-3 minutes to make them easier to skewer.

Ingredients

  • 4 lb. lean pork loin, trimmed
  • ½ tsp. salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. pepper, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. rosemary, divided
  • 1 lb. baby potatoes, washed and halved
  • 1 lb. rainbow carrots, washed and cut into large chunks
  • 1 lb. radishes, washed and halved
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions

  1. Soak bamboo skewers in cold water while preparing the vegetables. Heat grill to high.
  2. Wash the pork loin and pat dry. Rub generously with half each of salt, pepper, and rosemary
  3. Place vegetables on skewers. Brush with oil and sprinkle with remaining spices and herbs.
  4. Grill the pork loin until each side is seared lightly brown (2-3 minutes per side).
  5. Reduce heat to medium. Add the kebabs to the grill. Cover and continue cooking both pork and kebabs until vegetables are tender and internal temperature of pork hits 155°F (25-30 minutes).
  6. Let the pork rest 15 minutes, tented with foil.
