RECIPE BACKSTORY
COOK'S TIPS Prepare mixed vegetables for kebabs by choosing vegetables with similar cooking times, then cut them into bite size pieces or lengths. Small vegetables such as cherry tomatoes are best kept whole. Green onions, fennel, onion, eggplant, and zucchini would also be appropriate vegetables for skewering. Metal skewers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For best results, choose skewers that are square or flat; they will hold food more securely. PREPARE IN ADVANCE Marinate beef 1 day in advance. Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to cook. Prepare vegetables 1 day in advance. Store in green 'long-life' storage bags in the refrigerator until ready to cook. Proceed as in Step 2.
