The best option for your next outdoor barbecue is beef kabobs. Who doesn't enjoy eating meat on a stick, really? But even the best-laid plans might go awry if you lack fundamental grilling or skewering skills. With these seven suggestions, you can improve your kabob grilling skills and generate consistently tasty results.
We discover that the different sirloin slices work well for kabobs. Lean and fitting into a balanced diet, sirloin is rather tender and doesn't require prolonged marinating. It is also reasonably priced. Flat iron, strip, and even tenderloin steaks are additional excellent beef options for kabobs.
For softness, sirloin does not require marinating to break down the muscle fibers. However, if you want to give your beef cubes a unique flavor, marinate them for between 15 and 45 minutes before grilling (discard marinade after use; bottled brands are OK). Alternately, keep things really straightforward and allow the taste of the beef to stand out with only a dash of salt and pepper or a steak spice. Pro tip: Always marinate in the refrigerator to ensure the safety of your food. Never marinate while cooking outside or at room temperature.
It's OK to combine steak and vegetables on the same skewer, and it also looks lovely. For consistent cooking, keep beef chunks and other dense vegetables and fruits chopped into around 3/4-inch to 1 1/2-inch pieces.On the same skewer, for instance, meat, onions, squash, or pineapple pieces would go nicely because they can all withstand the same heat and cooking time.
Produce that is particularly fragile (like tomatoes) or that is noticeably smaller or larger should be skewered individually and taken off the flame early. Before grilling, hearty items like raw potatoes or slices of corn on the cob can be partially cooked and put on separate skewers or threaded with the meat.
Human nature compels us to load as much food as possible onto a single skewer. But heat can more effectively circulate and cook food when there is a thin (1/4-inch) space between each component.
Kabobs should be grilled over direct fire at around 400°F. Kabobs with 3/4-inch chunks should be grilled for a total of 8 to 10 minutes, turning halfway through. It will take longer for larger portions. Move the skewers to a cooler area or to indirect heat if you see that some of them are cooking more quickly than others. After you've finished cooking, the internal temperature of the kabobs should be 145°F for medium-rare. Advice: While sitting on the dish, kabobs will continue to cook a little more and gain a bit more temperature.
