Cat Cora’s Grilled Pork and Citrus Skewers

Cat Cora’s Grilled Pork and Citrus Skewers

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 pounds boneless pork, cut into 1 1/2-inch strips or cubes

2 whole oranges, cut into wedges for the skewers

3 lemons, cut into wedges for the skewers

6 pita pocket rounds, sliced into two half-moon shapes

Iceberg or Romaine lettuce, shredded

8 to 10 (8-inch) wooden skewers, soaked in water

 

INSTRUCTIONS

To make the marinade: In a large glass bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, chili flakes, chili powder, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Add in the pork and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (although I prefer to marinate for 3 hours or overnight).

Soak the wooden skewers in a shallow pan of water for at least 1 hour. Remove the pork cubes from the marinade. Thread 3 or 4 pieces of marinated pork on the skewers, alternating the pork with small wedges of lemons and oranges. Place the skewers on an area of the grill with no direct flame. Continue to brush marinade during grilling, until the meat is browned, about 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally or to desired doneness. Transfer the pork from the skewers and place in pita pockets. Top the pork with shredded lettuce and Avocado Tzatziki.

Chocolate Budino

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
