Preparation Method

  1. Preheat Wolf Barbecue Grill on medium high for 10 minutes with hood closed.
  2. Place the red pepper and pineapple on the grill.
  3. Allow the pepper to char on the outside, turning as needed.
  4. When mostly blackened and charred, place in a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 10 minutes, then remove, stem, seed and peel off the blackened skin.
  5. Finely dice and return to the bowl.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Cook the pineapple 10 minutes or until slightly charred, turning slices over halfway through cooking.

  9. Dice into 1/4-inch pieces.
  10. Place in bowl with red pepper.
  11. Add ginger juice, pepper sauce, lime zest and juice, scallions, sugar, salt and pepper.
  12. Set aside.
  13. Wrap each pork medallion in 1/2 piece bacon strip and secure 3 bacon wrapped medallions on one long metal skewer, allowing for about 1/2” between medallions.
  14. Season with salt and pepper.
  15. Repeat with remaining medallions.
  16. Place pork medallions on hot grill and grill for 3 to 4 minutes. (Cook with hood closed as much as possible.)

  18. Continue to grill another 2 minutes.
  19. Remove from grill and cover with foil.
