Chinese Barbecued Pork

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons salad oil
2 garlic cloves, mashed
1 small chili pepper, dried and crushed
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon anise seed
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 pound pork (lean), cut into bite-size strips or cubes
1 fresh pineapple (small)
1 medium red pepper, cut in chunks
skewers (if wooden soak in water)

Combine soy sauce, salad oil, mashed garlic, chili pepper, sugar, anise, cinnamon and cloves in a bowl. Add the cut up pork to the soy sauce mixture and stir gently to coat each piece of pork with the marinade. Refrigerate marinaded pork 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Preheat oven broiler. Place a marinaded piece of pork on a skewer followed by a piece of pineapple and then a chunk of red pepper. Continue adding items to skewer. Repeat until all skewers are filled. Broil about 5 inches from the broiler coil for 7-10 minutes, turning once. Serve hot.
