Pinchitos (Spanish Shish Kabobs)

Be sure to marinate them overnight for the best flavor.

2 pounds loin of pork
6 lemons, cut and squeezed, with the rinds included in the marinade
3 tbsp cumin
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of pressed garlic
1 tsp ancho chili pepper
1 ample pinch of saffron soaked in 1/8 cup of warm water

Cube pork into 1" pieces, season with salt and pepper and set aside. Mix the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add the pork pieces to the bowl, mix well and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
Soak wooden skewers in water before using. 10 minutes before grilling, skewer the pork pieces. Place directly on hot grill, turning frequently until fullly cooked. Remove and serve.

16 skewers = 2 points per skewer (approx 4 pieces of meat per skewer)

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
