Ingredients

    • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
    • 1 cup low-sugar BBQ sauce (like Stubb’s Original)

Preparation

Baking Directions:

Slice pork tenderloin into thin strips so they are approximately 1/4-inch thick, 4 inches long and 1.5 inches wide.Add pork slices and BBQ sauce to a dish or sealable bag and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (longer if you have time).Soak wooden skewers in water to keep them from burning on the grill.Pre-heat grill or grill-pan to high.Carefully slide each pork loin slice onto a skewer lengthwise so the meat stays flat and the skewer becomes the “rib.” Place “ribs” on hot grill and pour any leftover BBQ sauce over the meat. Cook 4-6 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness.
