Recipe FAQ’s

What steak is best for kabobs?

In my experience the best cut of meat for making kabobs is Sirloin. It is a naturally tender piece of meat that is lean. You want a leaner cut of meat so there are less flare ups from the fat on the meat while it is grilling.

How do you grill kabobs without burning vegetables?

To avoid burning your veggies while grilling your kabobs first soak the skewers for about 30 minutes if you are using wooden skewers. When cutting your steak and vegetables be sure to cut them into similar sizes and shapes to help the food cook evenly. Also, be sure to cut your pieces bigger than the space between the grills so they don’t fall through. 

What can I use if I don’t have skewers?

I prefer to use metal skewers but of course you can use wooden skewers as well. If you do not have either and are not able to get them you can use rosemary stalks as another option. They are just as strong as a regular skewer and can be used on the grill without an issue.
