1/2 cup hot (spicy) honey

1/2 cup orange juice 

2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil 

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 

1 teaspoon red curry seasoning 

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1 1/2 pounds beef tenderloin, cut into 1-inch chunks 

4 pineapple rings (canned or fresh), cut into 1-inch chunks 

Yellow rice, for serving, optional 


Special equipment:
eight 10-inch metal or wooden skewers
  1. Add the honey, orange juice, olive oil, salt, red curry seasoning and black pepper to a medium bowl. Whisk until the honey and oil are dispersed. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade, then divide the remaining marinade in half between two resealable plastic bags. Add the beef chunks to one bag and the pineapple to the other bag. Seal both bags and let rest at room temperature for 2 hours. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water while the beef and pineapple are marinating.
  2. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees F.
  3. Remove or strain the beef and pineapple chunks from the bags and discard the marinade. Pat everything dry. Build the skewers by alternating between the beef and pineapple, placing 3 to 4 pieces of each on each skewer. Place them over the direct heat of the grill and cook on each side for 1 to 2 minutes. Brush the skewers with the reserved marinade. Remove from the grill and serve with yellow rice, if using.
