The Roasted Garlic Lemon Skeweris cooked with minimal ingredients with fresh herbs and lemon garlic which added together giving you that sucker-punch flavor. We all wanted an eat-out with family and friends. One of the few recipes that no matter what the season it is a go-to, never-fail, crave-worthy meal.
Something that gets us all together in one set-up is food. Who would not love a get-together with a good meal in the table? Yes, I said it. It is perfect for summer if you feel like grilling with family and friends. Moreover, it grills up in no time and has fresh and bright summer veggies included.
The flavors go well together- delicious and tasty for the family to enjoy and love. It is the most perfect meal for a night out in the backyard with your loved ones!
Skewers and kabobs can be so good or really bad. Small pieces of meat left unattended can turn into crispy burned nuggets and have the possibility of overcooked when you’re distracted by obsessively checking your Instagram feed.
1. What kind of meat do you use for kabobs?
Choose the Best Beef Cut for Kabobs Relatively tender, without a need for extensive marinating, Sirloin (from top to tip) is lean and fits into a balanced diet – plus, it’s budget-friendly. Other good beef choices for kabobs are Flat Iron or Strip Steak and even Tenderloin.
In a small bowl combine garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, herbs, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Set aside.
Place cut vegetables in a zip lock bag and add 3 tablespoons of the herb marinade. Toss to coat. Place chicken in a separate bag and add remaining marinade and toss to coat. Let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 4-6 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Thread the skewers alternating with meat and vegetables. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill for 3-4 minutes and then flip. Continue to cook and flip when necessary until the chicken is cooked through to 165 degrees.
Serve with lemon wedges and squeeze on top.
While 4 cloves of garlic may seem a little vampire laden, I find the amount to be just right given the sauce is used only for the marinade and not for basting. Repeat, do not use the sauce for basting! It’s been cuddling with raw chicken and the rule of the kitchen is to toss anything that’s had raw chicken relations.
