Are you ready for summer? I am so excited that it is finally grilling season in Colorado. We love grilling and have really missed it. I mean, the smell of a grill is so delicious. Plus, no cleanup is a plus. So we decided to grill some pork the other day and I got an amazing pork loin from the fresh meat section at Safeway. Smithfield has several marinated flavors but for this meal, I chose the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Steakhouse Mushroom Pork Loin Filet. We have had it in the past cooked in the oven with gravy but this time, I decided to make some vegetable kabobs and grill this bad boy.
For this recipe, you will need a Smithfield Marinated pork loin along with some green and yellow squash and some mushrooms. Since the mushrooms are going to cook faster than the squash, I put them on their own kabobs so they could be removed when they were done and we wouldn’t be stuck with undercooked squash. For the squash, I alternated colors on the skewer solely because it looked pretty. Hey, food should look and taste good!
As I got the kabobs ready, I also had the grill heat up. Once it was hot, I placed the pork onto in the middle. I let each side sear to get a nice set of grill marks and then I let the loin cook for 25-30 minutes to finish. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, I moved the loin to the back of the grill and put on the veggies. They will cook up nicely in 8-10 minutes, be sure to turn them at least one time for an even cook!
Before serving, I sliced the loin into 1 inch slices and set it out. It turned out amazing. Perfectly juicy with a great char on the outside. I used some garlic salt to season the squash before serving and it was great. Even the kids loved it!
Grilled Steakhouse Mushroom Pork Loin Filet with Squash Kabobs
- 1 package of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Steakhouse Mushroom Pork Loin Filet
- 1 medium sized green squash
- 1 medium sized yellow squash
- 12 mushroom caps
- Heat a charcoal grill to about 350 degrees and place the pork into the center. Turn after a few minutes to get grill marks on all sides.
- Let the pork cook, turning once after 15 minutes. While the pork cooks, cut your squash into circles and skewer onto kabob sticks. If you use wooden ones, soak in water ahead of time to prevent burning. Prepare your mushroom kabobs as well.
- At 25 minutes on the grill, move the pork to make room for the vegetables and place kabobs onto the grill. Turn them once after 5 minutes.
- Allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1 inch thick slices. Sprinkle onion salt over the kabobs and serve.
