What Are Shish Kabobs

Since summer is just around the corner, you may start craving for some refreshing foods and drinks. You may also already plan out your yearly summer get-together and lay out all of your food options. And of course, shish kabobs should be on your list! Shish kabobs are pieces of meat cut into bite-sized that are skewered on a stick along with various vegetables. It is usually prepared on the grill and is perfect for any backyard occasion or outdoor meal.

Different types of meat can be used for your shish kabobs including beef, lamb, chicken, and even goat. But if you want the best cut of beef for your kabobs, you should definitely get filet mignon. But if you want to go meat-free, you can always incorporate some seafood like shrimp. Along with pineapple chunks, vegetables are also a must to add a variety of flavors. Some commonly used veggies for kabobs are:

  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Bell peppers
  • Onions
  • Sliced zucchini
  • Yellow squash

Shish Kabob On The Grill

Traditionally, shish kabobs are cooked on the grill because it can definitely give you and your guests that outdoor meal experience. Furthermore, cooking it on the grill definitely brings out the desired rich flavor that kabobs have!

To cook shish kabobs on the grill, you first need to marinate your meat and skewer it along with vegetables cut into bite-sized pieces. If you are using wooden skewers, it is best to first soak it in water for about 20 minutes to avoid burning the sticks. Make sure that you cut your ingredients into similar sizes so that they will be cooked uniformly. Also note that you should leave a little bit of space in between each piece on your skewer.  Then grill your skewers for about 8-10 minutes or until the meat is done to your liking. 

Shish Kabob in the Oven

There may be certain, unexpected instances wherein you will not be able to have an outdoor meal or cook your kabobs on the grill. This does not mean that you should give up, though. If you have a working oven inside your home, then you can still perfectly cook up some kabobs!

Cooking your kabobs on the oven will most likely take a bit longer than cooking it on the grill, but they will still have the same delicious outcome.

To cook your shish kabobs in the oven, you will have to prepare your meat as usual – cut into similar, bite-sized pieces and marinate if desired. If you are using wood skewers, you should soak it in water so they do not burn. You can also use metal skewers specifically the flat ones so the ingredients will not slip while cooking.

Arrange your kabobs onto a baking sheet that is coated with nonstick cooking spray, and leave some space between each skewer. Now, cook your kabobs in a 375F oven for about 20 to 30 minutes while turning it every five to 10 minutes.
