TERROR-yaki Tidbits Recipe
What are you serving at your annual Halloween BOO-ffet? Here’s a new idea for a dish that will be devoured by all the witches and goblins coming by. TERROR-yaki Tidbits are great make-head skewers that feature teriyaki marinated pork loin chunks along with onion and pepper squares as well as pineapple chunks. They can be grilled ahead and frozen to be placed into a slow cooker at the BOO-ffet.
You'll want to serve these year round, but will want to call them Teriyaki Pork Skewers. They won't be as scary, but will be absolutely delicious. Incidentally, you can substitute chicken for the pork.

36 Skewers

3 pounds pork loin, fat removed and cut into 1" chunks
2 green bell peppers, cut into 1" squares
1 large onion, cut into 1" squares

1 cup pineapple juice, or orange juice
1 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar

  2. Place them in a zip-type bag.

  7. Smash the garlic clove and the ginger pieces and add them to the marinade; mix well.
