  • 1 ½ lbs. boneless pork loin, cut into 1- to 2-inch cubes
  • 2 large Ginger Gold apples cut into 1-inch cubes, skin on
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • The juice from 1 medium orange

  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • ¼ cup raw honey; (optional)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a non-metallic container, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, orange juice, garlic, and honey (if using any). Season to taste with sea salt and ground pepper.
  2. Add the pork cubes to the marinade and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Once the meat has finished marinating, heat grill to medium-high.
