This is one of those cheap and cheerful recipes, which can be adapted to suit your taste.
Pork belly is a cheap cut, which a lot of people will skip over while making dinner plans. You can pick them up when on the special offer for around £5 per kilo; and it is perfect BBQ meat. The fatty parts will reduce and baste the meat while on the BBQ leaving you with a tasty, juicy on the inside and crisp on the outside meat pieces.
The ingredients list in not set in stone so you can mix and match depending on your fridge and cupboard contents. If you are not a huge fan of peppers replace them with a baby corn or maybe a lovely chunk of courgette. You can always add more veggies into the mix… the more the merrier.
Pork belly kebabs is a simple and fairly quick to make recipe; and it is extra tasty too 😉 It will serve well as a self standing meal or make a perfect addition to a party platter.
- 350g pork belly
- 350g cherry tomatoes (£0.95 at Morrisons)
- 150g button mushrooms (£0.65 at Morissons)
- 2 large peppers
- Handful of small onions or shallots
- Salt and pepper to taste
Wash your pork belly, remove the skin it and cut into chunks.
Wash all the veggies.
Cut your mushrooms in half (or 4 if you got a biggie).
Cut onions and peppers into large chunks (make sure you don’t over cut onions as they might fell to pieces later on; they need to stay fairly big – we just cut one in 4).
Take the skewer and start placing your ingredients. Important tip: do not place them to tight together. They need to be close but not rammed one on top of each other.
Use salt and pepper to add some flavouring… or if you feeling adventurous add some chilli flakes or a hot paprika into the mix; garlic powder will work well too.
Now that your kebabs are all ready it is time to cook.
We used our Primo BBQ / smoker for making our pork belly kebabs but any BBQ should do the job as well.
If you are going to grill it directly on the BBQ shelves you might want to oil them a bit just to avoid any food sticking into it…
BBQ them for about 20 minutes and do not forget about turning them over every 5 minutes or so… you will see when they are ready… they will “speak” to you when the time is up 😉
Serve hot… or not…
They go very well together with our Baby Potato Salad with Onion and Mint I shared with you earlier.
Enjoy if you are going to try them out… and if not… why not?
Don’t you love a good BBQ?

It’s great for BBQ when the pork belly gets crispy :o) we only make veggie-kebabs but they are great too :o)
I didn’t know that you are a veggie and yes, I agree… veggie kebabs have their charm too
what a great idea i have never thought of using belly pork on the bbq and making it into kebabs is a genius idea thank you x
They look delicious!
Nice recipe.. i am always looking for something new to bbq!
wow they look yummy, great finger food for the summer x
These look amazing! I can’t wait until we get our grill.. so many good things to be cooked! 🙂
Can never go wrong with a bbq! It’s a shame we rarely have the weather for it in the UK 🙂
I don’t eat pork but I will be sure to tell my friends who do about this recipe.
Looks scrummy, reading blogs whilst waiting for my paella to cook, glass of wine at hand:)
mmm – that sounds like an excellent idea. I cook with pork belly occasionally but I’ve never barbecued them – will definitely have to try that this summer.
Going to have to go and get something to eat now, you’ve made me hungry! They look delicious x
Mmmm! These look absolutely delicious and perfect for summer! I have never cooked with pork belly before – but now I have a reason to try!
Oh yes! These look absolutely scrumptious. I rarely eat like this. I will have to find occasion to celebrate. Thanks
Thank you for sharing this recipe. Can’t wait to put them on the grill this weekend!!!!
We wouldn’t usually do pork on the bbq at all, and for me, belly’s too fatty. Being beef farmers we tend to do steak, then chicken, homemade sausage etc. I do like kebabs though – on or off the bbq
Nothings better than a good barbecue and this looks delicious!
oh my goodness that looks delicious! My husband is def gonna have to make these once we break out the bbq !
My mum wants me to get some belly pork when I have my first barbie.I’ll have to do this for her.
Oh yes… you just got a new house… I think BBQ house warming party is in order 😉
Yummy! These look great! For some reason we haven’t had a bbq yet this year…I always find them more of a hassle than cooking in the kitchen and eating outdoors (which we do all the time!).
Our BBQ’s tend to be veggie but my dh eats meat and I think he’d like this recipe 🙂
Looking tasty.Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part
