Fire Up the Grill for Kabobs
Easy to make and always delicious, kabobs are the perfect way to serve up a complete dinner from the grill.
Mixing vegetables and meat on the same skewer is a no-go; you'll end up overcooking something. Instead, grill vegetable-only skewers to go with the meat-only kabobs. Choose thighs, a great cut of chicken for marinating because when they are deboned, the butcher leaves lots of nooks and crannies that trap the marinade. Finally, use a wide, flat skewer to keep the food from twirling around, making cooking and eating easier.

Gochujang is a Korean condiment with tons of bright, peppery flavor. It's made with chile peppers but is sweet enough for kids. Try it on grilled meat or stirred into mayonnaise for a sandwich. If you'd like, swap pieces of pork tenderloin or sirloin steak for the chicken.

Steak, veggies, and fruit make up these colorful kabobs. We also loved these kabobs with pork tenderloin and plums in place of steak and peaches.
Mangoes and raisins are the perfect accompaniment to citrus-marinated pork tenderloin. Serve atop a bed of spring greens with a Citrus-Chimichurri Vinaigrette.
