Pork and Bacon Kebabs
Steven Raichlen, courtesy of foodandwine.com
This double dose of pork was inspired by a dish Steven Raichlen encountered on a recent trip to Serbia, where he researched native barbecue traditions for his upcoming book, Planet Barbecue. “The grilling there was amazing, as sophisticated as any grill culture in the world,” he says.
Our pairing suggestion:
These kebabs are influenced by Serbian cooking; Zinfandel also has Eastern European roots—it is descended from the Croatian grape Crljenak and will pair nicely here.
