Pork Be Inspired – Huge Prize Pack giveaway ($25 gift card, grill pan, spice rack & more)



The National Pork Board is celebrating their recent launch of the new Pork Be Inspired campaign. This campaign was established to show how you can use pork for any meal of the day. They have delicious recipes and even show you the correct cooking methods too.

For my review I was given a gift card to purchase any kind of pork I would like. I chose to get a 1lb pork loin. I went online to Pork Be Inspired and chose the Italian Pork Kabobs with Summer Vegetables recipe.


 Italian Pork Kabobs with Summer Vegetables


1 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast, trimmed, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, or less to taste
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped, OR 1 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped OR 1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic , chopped
2 small zucchini, trimmed and cut crosswise into rounds
2 large bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1-inch squares


Prepare outdoor grill for direct medium-hot grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill on high. Adjust temperature to 400°F. For a charcoal grill, build fire and let burn until coals are covered with white ash. Spread coals and let burn for 15-20 minutes.

Whisk vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, and hot red pepper together in large bowl. Whisk in oil. Add basil, oregano, and garlic. Add pork loin and toss to coat. Spread zucchini and bell peppers on top of pork, season with remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and let stand 5 minutes. Stir to coat with marinade. Do not marinate longer than 15 minutes. Skewer pork, zucchini, and bell peppers, alternating ingredients, onto 6 metal kabob skewers.

Lightly oil cooking grate. Place kabobs on grill and cover grill. Cook, turning occasionally, for about 10-12 minutes or until pork is browned. Let stand for 3 minutes, then serve.

Yield: 6 servings


I didn’t have metal kabob skewers so I used wooden ones, but I failed to soak them long enough. They ended up burning and breaking, but dinner was still wonderful! The marinade was  perfect, it gave the pork a sweet tangy flavor. I will definitely be consulting Pork Be Inspired again for future recipes!  On a side note, we also tested out a recipe from the How to Cook Like a Top Chef cookbook (which is included in giveaway)!  We tried the Shrimp Mac and Cheese, which was amazing!

The wonderful people at the National Pork Board would like to offer one lucky winner with the same products they sent me!

  1. My favorite way to cook pork is to marinate in in Teriyaki Sauce, (overnight best) and then let my husband throw it on the grill. Will be very tender and melt in your mouth.

  2. I love cooking it low and slow on the grill stuff with garlic. Sooooooooo, good.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate,

  3. I like to slow cook boneless pork country ribs with a homemade BBQ sauce. I love it when it falls apart in your mouth! mmmm.

  4. I’ve never cooked pork, but I just stole a recipe from my sister for pulled pork and can’t wait to make it. She had it at my nieces birthday party and it was delicious!

  5. Leann Lindeman on

    Our favorite way is to cook pork for new mexican food… either carne adovado, green chile stew, or slow cooked and shredded for enchildas or whatever!

  8. Jayme From WI on

    My favorite way to cook pork is making pulled pork in the slow cooker. I place a pork roast in a slow cooker with garlic, onions, celery, and carrots. I then like to pour over a bit of flavorful fluid to cover before cooking for 10 hours. I like to use broth, mushroom and onion soup, or Worcestershire, depending on my mood.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
