Pork Recipes


I've done a million grilling segments on TV, and this is the universal favorite. Actually, it's one of my personal favorites, too. (If you are using wooden skewers, remember to soak them first.)

            1 pounds boneless pork loin
            2 small heads radicchio, round variety
            2 small red onions
            1/3 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
            1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
            3 cloves garlic, minced
            Salt to taste
            Freshly ground black pepper to taste
            Lemon wedges

Serves 4

Cut the pork into
1 inch cubes and set aside. Trim inch from the bottom of the radicchio. Leaving the core intact, cut each head of radicchio into 8 wedges. Peel and cut each onion lengthwise into 8 wedges, leaving the root end intact. Assemble 8 skewers by alternating 4 to 6 pieces of the meat, 2 of radicchio, and 2 of onion on each skewer. Lay the skewers on a baking dish. Combine the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub some of this mixture on each skewer, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the grill. Remove skewers from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Grill the skewers on a lightly oiled grill until pork and vegetables are golden and tender and the pork is cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes total. Serve with lemon wedges.
