  • For the Slaw, mix all ingredients in medium bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • For the Pork BBQ, cut pork in half crosswise. Cut each piece lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick strips. (Strips will be 1 to 2 inches wide.) Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Place pork in large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade; turn to coat well. Massage pork and marinade for 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Refrigerate 1 hour. Remove pork from marinade. Thread pork onto skewers. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Grill skewers over medium-high heat 3 minutes per side or until pork is cooked through. Serve skewers with Green Mango Slaw.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:
• Click here for Banana Ketchup.

• Banana ketchup or banana sauce is a popular Filipino condiment made from mashed bananas, sugar, vinegar and spices. This condiment is used on a wide variety of foods, such as barbecue pork and chicken skewers, fish, spaghetti, hot dogs, fries and burgers. 

• Green (unripe) mangos provide a sour, crisp tartness to foods, such as chutneys, pickles and salads. 

• If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with pork. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.

Substitution: Use 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs in place of the pork tenderloin.
