Grilled Shish Kebob Skewers Recipe on Gift Style Blog Gave That
Meat on a stick. If there's one omnipresent thing you see or smell at fair's and festivals it has to be grilled meat on a stick. Shish Kebabs, kabobs, Satays, meat skewers, spiedies, Yakitori....there are a myriad of names but the concept of this traditional street food is pretty much the same; meat or shrimp + skewer + sauce + grill. I've seen 200 of these go off the grill within 5 minutes and lines stretching around the tents. The thing is they're actually really easy to make. Keep reading for how to grill these festival skewers at home along with a favorite homemade Teriyaki style BBQ sauce recipe:


First step is to soak the wooden skewers at least 20 minutes before threading with meet.

Next I like to pound the meet thinner and cut it into 1 to 2 inches strips, threading them onto skewers before soaking in marinade.

Reserve half the sauce for use as a marinade, adding 1 Tablespoon of vinegar to raw meat and allowing to sit overnight in the fridge. The rest of the sauce can be brushed on after or during grilling.

These are quick to grill over low heat and away from direct flame so the BBQ sauces doesn't burn and the meat stays tender. If grilling or baking indoors add 1 drop of liquid smoke to the sauce for extra authentic festival flavor and if using lamb try serving these with this homemade soft flat bread recipe over here.
