1 package skewers – metal or wooden – if wooden, wipe them with a wet cloth 3 lbs T-bone steak - cubed 1 lb green peppers - cubed 1 lb yellow bell peppers - cubed 1 lb red onions - cubed 1 lb cauliflower – cubed Black pepper Sea salt Beer or wine
Kebabs are always fun and all you need is a hot grill and a few ingredients.
Prep: On a skewer, place 1 cube each of the following items: T-bone steak, green pepper, yellow bell pepper, T-bone steak, red onion, cauliflower, and lastly T-bone steak. Next, sprinkle the completed skewer with black pepper and sea salt.
Repeat the Prep process until you have used all of the T-bone steaks. Once the steak is gone, make skewers with the remaining ingredients.
Grilling: Place the skewers on a hot grill and cook until the meat and vegetables are done – meat should be at 165 degrees F or higher. Vegetables should be soft and starting to brown.
Serve these skewers with beer or wine. Enjoy!!
