Pork Tenderloin Kebabs with Raspberry Skyr Sauce

Description

It might come as a surprise that there is a rich tradition of grilling in Iceland. And not just hot dogs and pork chops during the short, bright summer months but all over the island you will find brave homecooks grilling a leg of lamb in a snowstorm.

Using Skyr is one of the easiest ways to tenderize meat. The best part of using Skyr as a tenderizer when grilling, is that it caramelizes in the heat, giving the meat a nice crust and a wonderful, slightly tangy flavor.

So with the grilling obsessed nation who eats tons of skyr every year in mind, we created this recipe of versatile marinade which not only tenderizes your meat but doubles as a side sauce as well.

Recipe
Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Cut off the top of the garlic head to expose the cloves. Place on a piece of foil and drizzle with little olive oil. Close tightly and roast in the oven until soft and golden, about 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, squeeze the cloves out of the peels, then mash along with any olive oil left in the foil.
Step 2:
Stir together the roasted garlic, Raspberry Skyr, Plain Skyr, mustard, honey, thyme, rosemary, and salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3:
Set aside half of the marinade in the fridge and use the other half to marinate the pork at room temp for 30-60 minutes.
Step 4:
Skewer the meat and veggies, alternating. Grill the skewers for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
Step 5:
Serve with a fresh cucumber salad, flatbread and, of course, the remainder of the skyr sauce.

Borscht

Borscht is a delicious, hearty beet soup popular in Eastern Europe, with origins most commonly traced to Ukraine. The dish typically contains beets and other vegetables cooked in broth and often topped with sour cream, though there are many variations served across the globe. Polish borscht, for example, is often a thin soup with juicy dumplings. Some versions are thicker in consistency, filled with hearty vegetables and stewed meat. Home Cooking Collective makes it vegetarian, subbing mushroom broth for beef broth, and features root vegetables, beets, and cabbage. They top the borscht with creamy skyr and a garnish of dill for a bright finish. Serve on its own, or with pierogi for a satisfying weeknight dinner. Serves 4-6
