Venezuelan Shish Kebabs – Pinchos

Venezuelan Shish Kebabs – Pinchos

We’re having such a terrible summer, that I had to make the Shish Kebabs on the stove.  Either way works well, but I must say, with pork it almost works better on a pan, since one can adjust the cooking time and temperature a little better.

Ingredients or the Shish Kebabs:

  • 1.5 lbs (75o gr) pork meat – in cubes
  • 2 onions – in cubes
  • 2 peppers – in cubes
  • skewers

For the Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 lime – juice
  • pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl.
  2. Make the Shish Kebabs, by placing 1 cube of meat, then onion, and then peppers, and then repeat, until the skewer is ready.  Continue until you’re done with the ingredients.

    Fry the Shish Kebabs on a pan on high, rotating them so that they are cooked evenly.  Add the marinade with a brush.  Bring down the heat and let simmer until the meat is well done.
