I am a simple person so I tend to cook simple too. For my shish kebob recipe, you can't use a long strip of meat because all the flavors of the other stuff won't mix into the meat, which makes it taste best. Now, I hate onions & peppers so I don't eat them, but I just LOVE the taste of them on the meat. Here goes; Beef (like a roast) Pork (chops) Chicken (breast cuz we don't like dark meat) Mushrooms Onions Red, Green & Yellow peppers Cut the 3 meats up into cubes about 1" x 1". Do not cut the mushrooms, keep them whole Cut the onions & peppers into 1" x 1" cubes. I always start with a mushroom and then 1 piece of meat, then an onion and a piece of meat, and a pepper and a piece of meat. Push them real close together on the skewer and fill the skewers completely. Grill on the BBQ outside until meat is done. TIP#1 For the skewers, if you are using wooden ones, make sure you soak them in water for an hour or so, this will prevent them from burning up over the grill. I use the metal ones and always coat them with oil by using a paper towel dipped in the oil, this helps to prevent sticking. TIP#2 Stick a second skewer in the food from the other direction to prevent the food from spinning. This is a great tip! Good Luck!
