Pineapple & Kielbasa Kebabs

Pineapple & Kielbasa Kebabs
                                                                     (3 servings)      


1 lb. Polish Kielbasa Ring
1 Fresh Pineapple
2 Red Peppers
1 bottle Sweet & Sour Sauce (your favorite)
3 Metal Skewers


Take the Kielbasa ring and cut it in half.  Now cut each half in half again.  Cut each of the four pieces into three equal pieces for a total of 12 and set aside.  Lay the fresh pineapple on its side and slice off the top and bottom about one half inch in from end of pineapple.  Stand the pineapple up on one cut end and slice off the skin from top to bottom working your way around the pineapple until all the skin has been removed.  Cut the pineapple in half from top to bottom.  Lay the pineapple down on the flat cut inside and cut in four equal pieces.  Turn the pieces 90 degrees and cut each piece into 2 wedges.  Next remove any inter core from each wedge.  Repeat with the other half of pineapple.  You should have 16 pieces when done and set them aside.  The red pepper needs to be cut in half from top to bottom and seeds removed.  Cut each half into four quarters.  This should give you 16 pieces of red pepper and you are now ready to assemble the kebabs.  You will need all 12 pieces of Kielbasa, only 12 pieces of pineapple and only 15 pieces of the red pepper.  You can eat the remaining pineapple pieces as you grill the kebabs if you want.  Take the metal skewer and start with a piece of red pepper followed by a piece of Kielbasa and then pineapple.  Repeat this order three more times and then finish with a piece of red pepper.  Do this with the other two skewers and place all three in a sheet pan.  Pour the sweet and sour sauce over the three kebabs and let sit for 30 minutes before grilling.  Remember to pre-heat your gas grill or get your coals to the right heat before starting to grill kebabs.  Turn the kebabs as needed while grilling for around 10 minutes.  You should have some char on all the ingredients on the kebab.  Add more sweet and sour sauce as needed during the grilling.  Serve over rice if you like.

Note:               You can use different meats, vegetables and sauces to make your
                           own favorite combination.

Note:               Be careful when using metal skewers as you can get burned easily.
                           If you don’t have metal skewers try wooden ones.  Be sure to
                           soak the wooden skewers for about 15 minutes before assembling
                           with the food.  This will keep them from burning while you grill
                           the kebabs.
