How to do Skewers Right
Grilling meat and veggies together on a stick is a great way to change up the menu, you’ll never get bored. Here’s how to make it easy.
Type of Skewer
If you’re using bamboo skewers, you should soak them in water for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling. Or you can just buy metal skewers and reuse them.
Select Your Meat
Choose the cuts of meat with a decent amount of marbling, this will keep the meat juicy and moist.
Pick your veggies
Select quick cooking vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, summer squash). Cut sturdy produce like onions and peppers into wedges. Putting the same type of vegetable on each skewer will allow you to have even grilling.
Use simple, flavorful seasonings to marinate everything from chicken thighs to portobello mushrooms.
Set your grill at medium-
Serve on the skewer and enjoy!
1/2 cup white-
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (preferably white)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup olive oil
1 lb small zucchini, cut crosswise into 3/4-
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 lb cherry tomatoes
1 lb baby eggplant (about 4 inches long), cut crosswise into 3/4-
10 oz cremini mushrooms, trimmed
2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-
1 large red onion, cut into 1 1/2-
Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients in a glass measure until combined.
Skewer and grill vegetables:
Toss zucchini in a large bowl with 2 teaspoons oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¾ teaspoon black pepper. Repeat with remaining vegetables, working with 1 type at a time and keeping each batch separate. Thread vegetables onto skewers (thread zucchini and eggplant horizontally through slices so cut sides will lie flat on grill; leave about ¾ inch between tomatoes, mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions), using 3 skewers per type of vegetable and not mixing vegetables on any skewer.
Prepare grill for cooking over medium-
Grill kebabs in 2 batches on lightly oiled grill rack, covered only if using gas grill, turning over once, until vegetables are tender (vegetables, except tomatoes, should be lightly browned; tomatoes should be blistered and shriveled), 6 to 10 minutes (timing will vary among vegetables).
Transfer skewers as cooked to a platter and, if desired, remove vegetables from skewers. Drizzle with some of vinaigrette and serve remaining vinaigrette on the side.
When faced with a temptation, such as eating unhealthy food or skipping out on studying, telling yourself and others “I don’t eat unhealthy food” instead of “I can’t eat unhealthy food” will help you adhere to your resolution better. Journal of Consumer Research
