Grilled KABOBS, hands down my favorite meal of all time!

A complete veggie and protein-packed dinner on a stick. You can repeat this easy weeknight dinner week after week because there are so many delicious ways to make kabobs. You can mix up the proteins, veggies, and marinades.

I’m excited to share three of my personal favorite grilled kabob recipes using Primal Kitchen’s sauces and marinades. These sauces and marinades add a whole lot of flavor with minimal effort.

I’ve outlined each of these three recipes in greater detail below.

But first I wanted to share my tips and tricks for making grilled kabobs an easy, family-friendly weeknight dinner that you can get on the table in 30 minutes or less:

  • Customize veggies. Make each recipe your own by adding or omitting veggies to your family’s taste. In our family that means making a couple ‘mushroom-free’ kabob skewers for my husband. 
  • Get your kids involved. If your toddler or child has an opinion about what’s on their plate, this is a great time to let them ‘choose’ by building their own kabobs. From my personal experience, my son is more likely to try new veggies if he had the opportunity to help prepare them. Although assembling the kabobs is the most time-intensive part, it’s often worth the extra work to get the kids involved. This is also why I like to assemble my kabobs ahead of time…{enter next bullet point}.
  • Assemble kabobs ahead of time. I personally like to prep my veggies and assemble kabob skewers the night before actually making them.  That way I can simply come home and throw them on the grill. Additionally, you can increase the flavor by letting kabobs marinade overnight. Marinated meat will keep in the refrigerator for 48 hours {USDA}.
  • Always make extra! Kabobs make great leftovers. My personal favorites include topping a bed of greens with kabobs to make a simple grilled steak and veggie salad for lunch meal prep.
  • Grill or broil. Because I live in Minnesota, and I love kabobs year-round, I’ve mastered both the grill and broil. Whenever we get the chance to grill kabobs, we do. But if I can’t grill, I’ll broil kabobs in a broiler pan. I use a Meat Thermometer to check internal temperatures. You want beef to be between 145°F to 160°F and chicken should reach 165°F {USDA}.
  • Toddler tip. I remove the steak and chicken pieces and cut them into smaller chunks for my toddler, but he loves picking veggies off the skewers.

Primal Kitchen Sauces, Dressings + Marinades

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen recipes featuring Primal Kitchen products around here! In fact, I recently shared three of my favorite grilled burger recipes including Primal Kitchen’s Whole30-approved condiments and sauces.

I’ve been using Primal Kitchen’s products consistently for some time, and I’m consistently impressed by both their clean, simple ingredient lists, and their commitment to making delicious, practical products.

Since I’m all about simple and easy weeknight dinners, I’m a big fan of Primal Kitchen’s pre-made dressings, vinaigrettes, marinades and sauces.

I can always recognize the ingredient list and several of their products are Whole30 approved and Keto friendly. Not to mention, their products are unsweetened; meaning they don’t add fake and unnecessary sugars {like you see with most pre-packaged sauces and marinades}.

Their products are simple, delicious, made of a clean ingredient lists, and my family loves them!
