Hey there! Today we’re making Gluten Free Pork Shashlik, or pork skewers. Perfect for when you’re in the mood for delicious grilled kabobs. These have such a delicious flavor and are perfect to pair with grilled vegetables!
HERE’S THE INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THIS Gluten Free Pork Shashlik:
2 1/2 LBS Pork Roast, cut into cubes
(1) 12 oz jar of Mayo
(10) small Yellow Onions, minced
~1 TSP Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
HERE’S HOW TO MAKE Gluten Free Pork Shashlik:
Cut your pork into 1-inch cubes.
Put your pork cubes, minced onions, and mayo in a Ziploc bag, bowl, or container and allow it to marinate for 1-2 days.
If you are using a bowl, use plastic wrap to cover the opening or a lid.
Put your marinated pieces of pork on wooden skewers, bamboo skewers, or metal skewers.
Grill them on a gas grill until cooked on medium to high heat.
Serve with grilled veggies! I like to grill summer squash, zucchini, eggplant, and peppers with it.
What is Shashlik kebab?
According to the Wiki, is grilled skewered cubes of meat. It’s similar to shish kebabs. It became popularly known as shashlik because of Russia and former Soviet Republics. Traditionally, it’s made with lamb, but you can use pork meat, beef, venison, chicken breasts, or whatever meat you desire! This recipe is not based on traditional Russian pork kebabs though. My friend Inna, who we sailed with a few years ago, told me about this recipe her family, who is from the Ukraine made. It is one of our favorites!
What pork meat is the best to use for shashlik?
You want tender meat like pork tenderloin or pork shoulder. Pork Chops will be good because we marinated it. Pork butts will work if you lower your heat from high heat to medium heat. I do not recommend pork belly for this recipe. My favorite is the pork shoulder with a little higher fat than the pork chop or tenderloin.
What do you serve with shashlik?
Bell Peppers- a classic kebab side.
Spring Onion- for a more mild flavor than yellow onions. A medium onion will do.
Red Onion- for a shaper, spicer flavor than yellow onions. Depending on how many you make, you may need large onions.
Pineapple Chunks-for a more tropical twist on your shashlik. Fresh pineapple would be my preference but canned will do just fine.
Potato Salad- easy to make.
French fries- they go with everything! Check out my recipe for homemade fries, here.
Gluten Free Bread Rolls- perfect if you are not doing keto or low carb.
Gluten Free Homemade Bread- perfect for if you want a sandwich variation or your shashlik.
Depending on what your sides are, this recipe is paleo and keto!
How to prepare your grilled veggies?
Olive Oil and S&P- slather them to get a nice grill on them.
Lemon juice- this may not be an acidic marinade, but the lemon will bring out great flavor in your veggies.
Salt and Pepper- to taste.
