Curried Pork and Vegetable Skewers with Warm Baby Potato Salad

RECIPE OVERVIEW

These skewers are delicious and are perfect for a tasty summer barbecue

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 2 people

  • 0 - Red Onion
    peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 - Red Pepper
    cut into chunks
  • 1 - SuperValu Courgette
    peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 sprigs SuperValu Fresh Thyme
  • 2 - SuperValu Quality Irish Pork Chops
    (From the Butcher Counter) – cut into chunks
From the Store Cupboard
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Medium Hot Curry Powder
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Olive Oil
  • 0 - SuperValu Salt
Warm Baby Potato Salad
  • 1 - Red Onion
    sliced
  • 12 - SuperValu Baby Potatoes
  • 3 cloves SuperValu Garlic
    roughly diced

Method

  1. Remove the leaves from the stems of the thyme and mix together with the garlic and olive oil.
  2. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Thread the pork and vegetable chunks onto 4 large barbecue skewers.
  4. Arrange the skewers in a baking dish, drizzle with the marinade and marinate for 30-40 minutes.
  5. Preheat the barbecue and cook the skewers on each side for 3-4 minutes until cooked. I normally cover the barbecue with the lid to allow the meat to cook thoroughly.
  6. Place the baby potatoes in a pot of cold water and bring to the boil.
  7. Cook until just tender. Strain off the water and slice the potatoes into chunks.
  8. Meanwhile sauté the thinly sliced red onion and garlic until softened, add in the sliced potatoes and mix well until the potatoes are golden brown.
  9. Season lightly with salt and pepper and then serve immediately with the pork skewers.

Top Tip

If you are using wooden skewers make sure to soak them in cold water overnight to prevent them from burning. It is vitally important to cook pork thoroughly.
