Given it’s football season… a lot of my dishes are going to revolve around football and tailgating. Trying recipes out for the big game is one thing I love to do.
One of the easiest dishes for me to make for a good tailgate is kabobs. There’s so many different things you can do with them… from the type of meat, vegetables and marinade you put on them. Usually I stick with the cheap ol’ chicken for my kabobs, but for this past tailgate I went with smoked sausages, mushrooms, onion, green pepper, baby potatoes, and cherry tomatoes. I was going to put small chunks of sweet corn on them, but the corn was being difficult and the skewers weren’t very long.. I love my meat…. and mushrooms!
The marinade is really very simple and boy is it delicious! You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry.
Instead of the Smoked Sausage Kabobs like I made… this marinade would be *PERFECT* for a good Steak Kabob as well.
Since my smoked sausage did not need marinated, I left them out, but I placed everything else in a big bowl and tossed it a few times. I actually let mine set for two days… All the vegetables were full of flavor and the mushrooms…. mmmmmmm I can still taste them in my mouth! They were so good.
You do not need to let yours set for that long, 30 minutes will do. Just keep in mind the longer you let them set the more flavor they will soak up!
For some reason I was spacing out when I was making these and I didn’t get any pictures. I think I am going to have to blame SnapChat for that!
- 2 pounds Sirloin Steak, or meat of your choice, cut into 1" cubes
- 1 red bell pepper, 1" cubes
- 2 green bell pepper, 1" cubes
- 1 large red onion, 1" cubes
- 1 pound small mushrooms

- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce

- In a large bowl combine the seasonings, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, soy sauce, and olive oil
- Place the steak (or your other choice of meat), peppers, onions, and mushrooms into the marinade tossing to coat and let set for at least 30 minutes
- Skewer the steak and peppers alternating with the onion, tomatoes, and mushrooms until all the steak has been skewered
- On a hot grill, place the skewers down and cook (5ish minutes per skewer--they don't take that long), turning occasionally until there's a nice char on the outside
- **You can use whatever meat and vegetables you would like for this marinade**
- **The longer you allow the meat and vegetables to set in the marinade the more flavor they will soak up**
