Kabobs are usually filled with meats and assorted veggies, but can also include certain fruits for a sweet, smoky flavor. Here are some of the most popular meats and veggies you will find on kabobs, as well as fruits to consider including on your skewers.

  • Chicken, steak and sausage are all popular meats

Remember, balancing the flavors for a kabobs recipe is important. Make your grilled kabob delicious and satisfying when you mix up the textures, and flavors. Try these tips:

  1. Use a variety of vegetables: Including a mix of different vegetables can help balance out the flavors on a kabob. For example, sweet peppers can add a sweet flavor, while onions can add a sharp, savory taste.
  2. Choose complementary seasonings: Seasonings like garlic, rosemary, and cumin can add depth and complexity to your kabobs. Experiment with different spices to find a combination that works well together.
  3. Use a marinade when appropriate: A flavorful marinade infuses your kabobs with delicious flavors. Marinating your meats and vegetables for at least a few hours (or even overnight) may be just the ticket to tenderize the meat and add flavor to the veggies. You won’t need to marinade sausage. It is already to pierce and grill.
  4. Don’t forget the sauce: Adding a sauce or dip to your kabobs can help bring all the flavors together. Try a yogurt-based sauce with garlic and lemon, or a spicy barbecue sauce for some added kick.

By using a variety of vegetables, complementary seasonings, a flavorful marinade, and a tasty dipping sauce, you can easily balance the flavors in your kabobs and create a delicious dish that’s a hit with your family and friends.

How do you make the perfect kabobs?

The perfect kabob will be the one that perfectly suits those eating it. For many people, using a mix of meats and vegetables, seasoning them well, and cooking them until they are tender and juicy is the perfect kabob recipe. For the cook, it may mean whipping up a batch of kabobs with little fuss that pleases the crowd eating them.

Here are some basic tips and ideas about things to consider when making a your perfect kabobs.

For all kabobs recipes, soak wooden skewers in water several hours so they don’t ignite during grilling.

Select the meats: What is the best meat for kabobs?

Most types of meat work well for a kabobs recipe. Beef: use cuts like sirloin, flank steak, and ribeye for kabobs. Chicken: Either boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh meat works well for kabobs. Make Hawaiian chicken kabobs recipe with a teriyaki sauce marinade and fresh pineapple. Pork: Pork tenderloin, loin chops, and shoulder cuts are all good options with a sweet marinade.

And of course, sausages can also be a great option for kabobs. They come in a variety of flavors and can add a lot of flavor to your dish. Look for sausages that are pre-cooked or smoked, which will make them easier to cook and ensure that they are fully cooked through. Some popular sausage options for kabobs include Italian sausage, chicken sausages, bratwurst, and chorizo. Just be sure to cut them into bite-sized pieces and balance the flavors with a variety of vegetables and seasonings.

Cut the meat or seafood into chunks large enough to stick on a skewer, but small enough that it will cook relatively quickly. Because the meats will be paired with veggies that will cook faster than most proteins, this is important.

Should I marinate kabobs before grilling? Marinating the prepared meat is a great way to add flavor and tenderize the meat. Marinate meat several hours before threading onto the skewers will give the meat time to absorb the flavors, and soften the proteins of certain cuts, allowing them to cook faster without becoming tough. Allow the meat to rest and marinate for at least 1 hour, but the longer the better.

Wash and prepare the vegetables while the grill is heating up, unless you need to prepare them ahead of time for a large party. Cut the vegetables into slices or pieces roughly 1″ in thickness to ensure they are strong enough to stay on the skewer through the grilling process, but thin enough they will cook through and create a wonderful crispy texture.

For a party consider a ‘kabob bar’ set up to allow guests to assemble their own kabobs. On large platters arrange the pre cut meats or seafoods, sliced veggies, and fruits. If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water beforehand so that they don’t burn on the grill.

Do you marinate veggies for kabobs?

Marinating or seasoning veggies for kabobs is not always necessary, but it can add to the flavor. Sprinkle salt and pepper, fresh herbs, or aromatics over the veggies to infuse the flavor. Or, consider brushing them with an olive oil or balsamic vinegar based marinade to create a crispy exterior.

How long do you leave kabobs on the grill?

The time it takes for kabobs to cook on the grill can vary depending on the ingredients you use. If you are offering multiple different protein options, you may need to grill them separately. For example, steak and shrimp kabobs will need to be grilled separately because they will require different cook times.

Preheat the grill to 375 degrees F and be sure to use a meat thermometer for meats like chicken to ensure they are cook through.

Kabobs usually cook in 12-15 minutes. You can brush them with additional marinade to keep them from drying out too much, and be sure to flip them halfway through to avoid burning. If the kabobs do not release from the grill grates easily, allow them a few more minutes to cook and then flip them to sear all sides.

Do I put oil on kabobs before grilling?

Brushing an oil based marinade, or using a high heat oil like avocado oil will help to keep the kabobs from sticking to the grill. An oil can also create a crispy char on the veggies which helps to deepen the flavor. Our grilled sausage tomato zucchini kabobs crisp up beautifully for a rich smoky flavor.

This process applies to pretty much all sausage kabobs recipes. Sausage is pre cooked and flavored so needs little else. Just pierce it and add in whatever else you choose to go with it.

  • Pre soak your skewers in water so that they don’t burn on the grill
  • Preheat the grill to about 375 degrees F or medium heat
  • Prepare your sausage by slicing into 1″ thick rounds and set aside
  • Slice your veggies into large chunks
  • Make your marinade or sauce if you are choosing to use one
  • Thread the sausage and veggies in an alternating pattern until the skewers is full with about 2″ on each end of the skewer remaining free to grab and hold
  • Place the skewers directly onto the grill grates, cooking until they easily release from the grates
  • Turn the kabobs to sear all sides evenly
  • Remove from the heat and serve with your favorite sides
