This Hawaiian turkey kebab is so delicious, the sweetness from the pineapple and the sauce is everything if you try this recipe you will be hooked, I used red pepper flake to reduce the sweetness, but it totally optional. This is a crowd-pleasing recipe, you can use chicken in place of turkey. You can grill it over an open fire grill, electric grill or oven. You can pair it with your favorite side. Let’s get cooking!
- 1.5 Pounds Turkey (Skinless, boneless, and cubed)
- 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
- 1/4 Cup Soy sauce
- 1/2 Cup Ketchup
- 1/2 Cup Pineapple juice
- 1 Whole Pineapple fruit (cut and cubed)
- 3 Tablespoons Oil (plus more for brushing)
- 1 Tablespoon Rice vinegar
- 1.5 Bell peppers (cut into chunks); any color of your choice
- 1/2 Red onion (cut into chunks); you can use more
- 1 Tablespoon Minced ginger
- 2 Tablespoons Grated garlic
- 1/2 Teaspoon Red pepper flakes (optional)
- Knorr bouillon powder/cube
- Salt and pepper
Clean the turkey and cut into cubes, season with knorr, salt, and pepper. Mix and set aside.
In a large bowl, add brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, pineapple juice, oil, rice vinegar, minced ginger, garlic, red flake pepper, salt, and pepper
Reserve about 1/8 cup of the sauce and combine the seasoned turkey into the sauce and mix. Let the turkey marinade overnight or at least one hour. You want the sauce to get into the turkey.
If you're using wooden skewer soak in cold water to prevent burning. You can soak the skewer at the same time you want to the turkey marinade.
Peel the pineapple, and cut into chunks.
Clean the onion and bell peppers (seeded) into chunks. Season with oil, salt, and pepper, or better still drizzle some of the sauce over it and toss.
Preheat the grill to about 375-400 degree F.
Thread the onion, bell peppers, pineapple, and turkey. Continue the process until you're done or all the turkey has been used.
Use a pastry brush and brush the grill with oil. Place the skewer on the grill and baste (reserved sauce) over the skewer and cook for about 6 minutes. Turn the skewer (be careful it is going to be hot) and cook further for about 5 minutes or until the turkey is cooked or until the thermometer reads 165 degrees F,
Repeat the process until you grill all the turkey.
Serve and enjoy!
I used two colors of bell pepper because I had a leftover from previous cooking which I didn't want to waste, you can use just one color and you can increase the vegetable quantity if you wish.
