Diabetes-Friendly Recipe Low-Carb Recipe


  • 1 (10 oz) jar low-sugar apricot fruit spread (such as Cascadian Farms)
  • 4 Tbsp orange liqueur or orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 lb boneless lean pork loin, trimmed, cut into one-inch cubes
  • 2 corn-on-cob, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper, deseeded, cut into cubes
  • 4 small regular tomatoes, cut in half (or 8 cherry tomatoes)


Stir together apricot spread, liqueur (or orange juice) and butter and simmer in a small saucepan until butter is melted (OR combine ingredients in a 2-cup glass measure; microwave on High 1 minute).

Place pork cubes in heavy plastic bag, pour 3/4 cup apricot mixture over to coat. Marinate at least 30 minutes.

Thread skewers, alternating pork, bell pepper, tomato, and corn. Grill over hot coals or hot grill 10 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with marinade. Heat remaining apricot sauce to boiling and serve alongside kabobs, if desired.
