Here’s a fun and easy way to prepare home-made beef and vegetable kabobs. Enjoy cooking and savor this very tasty and healthy dish.
- Add 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl or re-sealable plastic bag and then add 1 tablespoon of beef bouillon granules. Stir constantly to melt the granules in water.
- When the granules melted, stir in the 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Stir to mix the added ingredients.
- Then add the meat in the marinade and cover the bowl or re-seal the plastic bag. Put it on the refrigerator to marinate the meat for 2 hours.
- After 2 hours of marinating the meat, add 5 cups of veggies to the plastic bag or bowl and put it back to the refrigerator. Marinate for another 2 hours.
- When done marinating, take the marinated meat and veggies out of the fridge. Prepare your grill by preheating it to high heat or you can use the broiler on high.
- Thread beef cubes onto skewers, alternating with veggies of your choice. You can use 6 to 8 pieces per skewer or more.
Tip: You can also thread just the beef cubes and serve them along with cooked and grated cauliflower.
- When done, arrange the skewers in the grill. Constantly turn over each skewer until the meat’s color becomes light pink. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes.
- When completely grilled, take them out of the grill and place in a flat plate. Serve when ready.
- Kabobs Cooking Tips:
If you are using wooden skewers, do not immediately thread the food, it is important to soak the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before using them. This will prevent the food from burning because of intense heat.
Wooden skewers are best if you are cooking for a big crowd as they can just be blended.
Metal skewers should be clean and oiled or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. These are great to use if you are cooking foods that require 5 minutes or longer time to cook.
It is also important to keep all the ingredients (meat and veggies) about the same size so they will be cooked evenly. If you’re cooking foods with very different cooking times (for example pork and cherry tomatoes), you can thread the same foods on one skewer. When cooked, you can then re-arrange the foods in skewers.
For foods that can coil on the grill, like shrimp, use two skewers, similar to each other, to cut the food.
One of the best grilling tips to remember is to make sure to leave some space between food pieces especially meats. This will allow your foods to be completely cooked.
While you’re grilling, you can brush shish kabobs with seasoned oils or marinades for flavor. Discard any unused marinade when you’re done grilling and cook the kabobs for another 2 to 3 minutes after brushing them with the marinade for the last time to kill any bacteria.
Make sure to watch the kabobs while grilling. Turn them frequently to avoid burnt kabobs.
