1.  To make the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients.

2.  Put the pork in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

3.  Remove the pork from the bag and discard the marinade. Thread the pork and tomatoes onto skewers, alternating the ingredients. Grill over Direct High heat until the pork is barely pink in the center and the tomatoes are very soft, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once or twice. Top with a squeeze of lime juice and the cilantro. Serve warm.
