Ever since the heat wave last week, grilling has been my favorite method of cooking. Here’s another yummy recipe to keep the heat outside!
Gather your ingredients: Olive oil, Rustic Rub (recipe follows), beef, chicken, mushrooms, hot peppers, bell peppers, onion, yellow, squash, S&P.
Make 2 bowls of marinade to keep the raw meat separate. Whisk together olive oil and Rustic Rub.
Adding hot peppers is completely optional. Chop the peppers thinly and omit the seeds for less heat.
Add your meat and toss to coat.
Cover the marinade bowls and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Chop your vegetables into bite size pieces and coat with olive oil and S&P.
Toss to make sure all the veggies are well coated.
Assemble your kabobs. I alternated meat and veggies and used onions or peppers as an end for the kabob to keep everything from slipping off.
Lite the grill and heat to medium/high heat. Put the chicken over the higher heat because you want to make sure the chicken is cooked all the way though.
Turn the kabobs after about 5 minutes.
The steak finished cooking before the chicken, so I took them off the grill and let the chicken cook a while longer.
Looks delicious, doesn’t it? Make your neighbors hungry and make this for dinner tonight!
