I haven’t fixed shish kebabs for a few years and yesterday I bought a large sirloin tip roast. I cut up enough cubes for the two of us for tonight and froze the rest. We can use the rest for kebabs or something else — whatever seems right at the time. I have been marinating the beef all day in a vinaigrette with a little soy sauce mixed in.
We will skewer chunks of red, yellow and green pepper, mushrooms, lots of mushrooms, red onion wedges, and cherry tomatoes. I like to skewer the meat and vegetables separately since they tend to cook for unequal times. The cherry tomatoes will be by themselves on a skewer as well because they only need a minute or two and I don’t want them to burst and fall into the fire.
I am fixing rice pilaf also. It’s one of Alton Brown’s recipes from the Food Network.
