Brush the grill grates with oil and heat the grill to medium. Cook skewers over indirect heat, turning occasionally until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Brush the pork steaks with the bay leaf butter and grill, turning over midway until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
