  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water 1 hour prior to use

  • ½ cup Dijon-style mustard

Start by your washing hands, assembling the ingredients and utensils and preparing a clean workspace.

Combine your rub ingredients –– paprika, chili powder, sugar, garlic powder, and ground pepper –– then add to your pork tenderloin pieces, tossing gently to coat the meat.

Next wrap the bacon around each piece of pork, thread each wrapped piece onto a skewer. 

Place each full skewer onto a large platter and set aside.

Combine your glaze ingredients: mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, rosemary and hots sauce.

Pour glaze over the kabobs and refrigerate for one to four hours.

When grilling, place kabobs onto the grill at medium heat, for six minutes each side.

Once cooked, remove from heat, serve and enjoy!
