Instructions

Mango Marinated Pork Cubes:

  1. Combine garlic, mango puree, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, ground cumin and olive oil; stir well. Add pork cubes and marinate, refrigerated, for a minimum of 2-3 hours.

Mango Pork Skewers:

  1. Prepare grill with wood charcoal and preheat to 500°F for a perfect grilling of the churrasco.* Grill red onion and scallions until lightly charred and softened. Set aside. Prepare skewers by alternating marinated pork and mango cubes; season with salt and pepper prior to grilling. Place skewers onto open fire grill, and cook 7-8 minutes on each side, being careful to maintain a light char.

To Serve:

  1. Lay down the grilled red onion and scallions as a bed, and place the skewers on top.
