  • 2 lb boneless pork chops, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
  • 2 Tbsp dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp fennel seed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 24 (6-inch) wooden skewers (soak in water for 30 minutes before using)


Place pork cubes in resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing, red pepper flakes and fennel seed. Seal bag; shake the bag lightly to mix contents. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to overnight to marinate pork.

When ready to cook, thread skewers, alternating pork, bell pepper cubes, and onion pieces. Discard marinade.

Place kebobs on greased broiler pan and broil 5 inches from heat, or grill over medium-hot coals/grill, for about 5 minutes per side.


Can replace bell peppers with other vegetable pieces, if desired.


Make ahead or have your guests skewer their own. Serve as an appetizer or as an entrée. They're easy to make and to clean up afterwords!
