Grilled food is as much a part of camping as is sitting around the campfire at night or the smell of campfire coffee in the morning. While the traditional burgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob, and S’Mores are always on the menu, a tasty twist that is easy to make is the Kabob.
Kabobs are a great addition to any camping menu because not only are they delicious but they are quick to assemble and can be customized to each person’s tastes. There is a great shish kabob recipe that everyone should try while camping. This recipe is actually a beef shish kabob because it uses beef whereas a typical shish kabobs uses lamb.
The ingredients for this beef shish kabob are vegetable oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, prepared mustard, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, cracked black pepper, salt, lean beef, mushroom caps, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, onion, and of course at least 8 shish kabob metal skewers.
The directions are very easy to follow. You simply whisk together the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vegetable oil, mustard, pepper, garlic, and salt in a small bowl. Add the beef to the mixture and marinate it in a sealed plastic bag. It will need to be marinated for 8 hours in a refrigerator or ice chest.
After the 8 hours are finished you then can add the mushrooms and marinate it for another 8 hours. Lightly oil the grate on your barbecue grill and preheat it. Remove the mushrooms and beef and pour the left over marinade into a small bowl. Place all ingredients onto the metal skewers and barbecue at a medium low heat. As you barbecue you must make sure that the skewers are being turned frequently as you brush on a generous amount of the extra marinade.
These are easy to eat and even taste great the next day. Make a few extra because they will be popular. We hope you enjoy all your camping meals and your time with your camping family this year.
