“My healthy prep-ahead skewers are easy to grill at the last minute, making them handy for time-pressed days. Red pepper flakes add a nice bite. Serve with steamed rice or broccoli.” —Dawn E. Bryant, Hershey, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each), cut into 1-inch cubes
