Peppers and zucchini work well in this recipe because they cook at the same rate as the meat, but customize your kids’ kebabs with the veggies they like best.


Dice, marinate and freeze beef up to a month ahead of time for quick on-site cooking. Metal skewers conduct heat (which means they help cook meat from the inside out) and don’t need soaking like bamboo skewers.
