About this Recipe

Sweet and succulent, citrus flavoured pork skewers, garnished with vibrant chillies or green onion.


6 Cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup (60 mL) Sugar
1/4 cup (60 mL) Soy sauce
1 tsp (5 mL) Lime zest
1 tsp (5 mL) Orange zest
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) Freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbsp (30 mL) Freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Maple Leaf Prime® Portions Boneless Pork Chops
1/2 cup (125 mL) Sprite or 7-Up
Thinly sliced hot chillies or green onions for garnish


WHISK together the first eight ingredients in a small bowl. Cut the pork chops into ½” (1 cm) strips, lengthwise and place in a shallow dish or a plastic freezer bag. Pour the marinade, along with the Sprite or 7-Up over the pork. Massage to coat and refrigerate for at least four hours or up to overnight.

PREHEAT the BBQ to medium-high. Lightly coat the grill with a non-stick cooking spray. Thread the pork onto skewers in a ribbon-like fashion. Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and continue to cook for about 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

GRILL the pork skewers for 8-10 minutes, turning and basting frequently with the sauce until evenly char-grilled and the internal temperature has reached 160°F (71°C). Garnish with hot chillies or green onions.


If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning.

Serve with cucumber salad and rice.
