- 2 pork tenderloins (12-16 oz. each)
- 1 can (6-oz.) pineapple juice (3/4 cup)
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic

- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 cups peeled and cubed fresh pineapple (1-inch pieces)
- 6 to 8 wooden or metal skewers

- In small bowl, combine marinade ingredients; pour over pork.
- Seal bag; refrigerate for at least 1 hour to marinate, or up to 24 hours to enhance flavor.
