  1. Rub the chops with the olive oil (both sides). Season each witht he salt, pepper and seasoning mixture.
  2. Heat a non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium heat. When hot, coat lightly with cooking spray. Place the chops in the hot skillet and pan sear on each side about two and one-half to three minutes. Remove to a plate. Cover with foil. Let them rest about five minutes. Then cut into about 1-2" bites. Each chop should yield about 6-9 bites.
  3. Use 4" skewers to create the dinner bites using different combinations of ingredients threaded on the skewer.


Can substitute chicken for pork.

Brainstorm other dinner bite ingredients for skewer, like pineapple chunks (zucchini, squash, cherry tomatoes and more!)

Experiment with your seasoning mixtures. Try dry harissa, Jamaican Jerk, Greek, Italian and more!
