Alcoeur Apron's Sweet-and-Sour Pork Skewers with Pineapple
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon sriracha
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, cut into cubes
1 pineapple - peeled, cored, and cubed
Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
Make the sweet-and-sour sauce: In a small pot, combine the pineapple juice with the rice vinegar, ketchup, sriracha, soy sauce and garlic. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
In a small bowl, whisk the sugar with the cornstarch to combine. Add the sugar mixture to the pot and whisk well.
Simmer until the sauce thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.
Make the skewers: Arrange the pork and pineapple on the skewers, alternating between the two. Repeat until all the skewers are assembled.
Brush the skewers with olive oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook on a preheated grill or grill pan until nicely charred on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
While the skewers are still hot, brush generously with the sweet-and-sour sauce. Garnish with scallions and serve.
