  3. Slide pork onto skewers and set aside.

  5. Whisk mixture to dissolve ingredients well and pour marinade mixture onto the pork.
  6. Cover and set in the fridge overnight or at least 4 hours before grilling.
  7. Grill on direct heat until pork is done, turning as needed to obtain char marks on both sides. (about 10-15 minutes)
