K is for Kabobs

April 10th, 2011 at 06:51 pm

When I was growing up, kabobs or shisk-kabobs were something I knew about, but we never had. I don't know why. I guess my mom wasn't interested in making them or trying them or whatever. The closest we ever got to kabobs were cooking hot dogs on a stick.

I've been experimenting at a restaurant because every so often they have a special. Last night it was pork kabobs. It was pork tenderloin chunks, pieces of green bell pepper and pieces of red onion. I'm not sure what they seasoned it with, but it was prett tasty.

A few months ago they had swordfish kabobs. I had never eaten swordfish so I figured I was being experimental, but it was pretty tasty as well.

I really like grilled vegetables, so I'm thinking I need to invest in some kabob skewers -- either the wooden ones or the metal ones. I think I could have a good time coming up with different vegetables to put on them as well as different types of meat.

Do you have any favorite things for kabobs?

    Lamb souvlaki is my favorite kebab type dish.

    I also love the Mixed Grill that Olive Garden does which has chicken, beef, red and green bell peppers, zucchini, yellow summer squash and Tuscan potatoes in a demi glace sause. I'm not sure if that one counts as a real kebab though since they take it off the skewers before they give you the plae.

    Ugh, can't spell today. Sause should be sauce and plae should be plate.
