    Recipe Tip

    Prepare as directed, substituting 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts for the sirloin steak.

    To broil kabobs instead of grilling them, assemble kabobs as directed; place on rack of broiler pan. Broil, 5 to 7 inches from heat, 6 to 10 min. for medium doneness (140F), turning and brushing occasionally with the barbecue sauce.

The Best Way to Grill Your Beef Kabobs

When you are grilling your kabobs, you are going to want to keep your different ingredients (beef, chicken, veggies, seafood etc) on seperate sticks as they will each have differing cook times.

Before you preheat your grill, make sure that you have brushed your cooking grate clean. Preheat the grill for 10-15 before putting the kabobs on. 

Before eating your kabobs, let them cool down for a few minutes first.

How to Keep Your Fresh Vegetables

Using fresh vegetables in cooking is a great way of giving your food a  more natural and vibrant flavor. However, get the best out of your fresh veggies you are going to want to make sure that they are properly stored so that they maintain their flavor. 

Luckily most vegetables can simply be stored in a plastic bag or a container in the crisper in your fridge, though mushrooms should be stored in a paper bag instead. Be sure to store your vegetables in a different part of your fridge to your fruit so they don’t ripen too fast.
