Who needs takeout when it's grill season? Fire up the BBQ and throw on these simple skewers, and drizzle with our miso mixture for serving.


  • 8 wooden skewers

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

  • 2 tbsp miso paste

  • 2 tbsp grainy Dijon mustard

  • 2 tsp finely grated ginger

  • 2 tsp rice vinegar

  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 375 g each, cut into 1-in. cubes

  • 2 tsp canola oil

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  • SOAK skewers in warm water 15 min. Whisk maple syrup with miso, Dijon, ginger and rice vinegar in a small bowl.

  • PREHEAT barbecue to medium-high. Toss pork cubes with oil and salt. Thread pork onto skewers. Oil grill, then barbecue pork, lid closed, flipping halfway, until pork is cooked through, 8 to 10 min. Transfer from grill to a large platter and generously brush with miso mixture.
