    Assemble the Skewers

    Place 4 to 5 pieces of marinated pork on four skewers. On remaining two skewers, place vegetables: pineapple first, then bell pepper, then red onion. Repeat that process twice per skewer. When assembled, the total amount of skewers should be four pork and two vegetable. Season each vegetable skewer with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Place pork skewers on prepared baking sheet, and fold foil over exposed ends. Place in broiler and broil 6-8 minutes, depending on the strength of your broiler. Remove from oven and flip skewers.
