  • Mix Marinade Mix, oil, water and vinegar in small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for brushing. Place pork and steak into separate large resealable plastic bags or glass dishes. Divide remaining marinade evenly among the pork and steak; turn to coat well.

  • Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor. Remove both meats from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread pork and steak onto skewers.

  • Grill skewers over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until meat is to desired doneness, turning occasionally and brushing with reserved marinade.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:

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

Serve Brazilian Meat Skewers with Creamy Green Chile Cilantro Sauce, Guava Mango Ají Amarillo Sauce, Red Chimichurri Sauce or Grilled Tomato Coconut BBQ Sauce.
