Pork Skewers / Kebabs / Shashliki

These delicious skewers, if done properly, could be the best option for any party, special celebration or just a dinner.

I make them from pork meat. My favorite meat is so-called pork carnita (in my local store).  But you may try a different kind of pork if carnita is not available at your local food stores.

  • 1 lb (450 g) pork meat
  • 1/2 white onion (yellow would be OK too, if white is not available)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp Adobo Goya seasoning (this is my favorite natural seasoning, no MSG and other harmful chemicals added)
  • 1/4 tsp Mrs. Dash seasoning
  • 1/3 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp full mayonnaise (try homemade recipe)


  1. Cut the meat into chunks.
  2. Cut the onion into large chunks.
  3. Mix with all ingredients, cover with plastic.
  4. Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.
  5. Put the meat chunks onto wooden or metal sticks (put the onion chunks between the meat if desired).
  6. Preheat a grill to high temperature, then turn to low or medium (depending on a grill kind).
  7. Grill the skewers turning the sides after 4-5 minutes for several times, until it cooked thoroughly. Please watch and don’t overcook, otherwise meat become dry.
  8. Serve with vegetables and potato if desired. Enjoy!
