Note: If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them for 30 minutes prior.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Once very hot, place the skewers on the grill. Allow them to grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature of the pork is at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
