There’s always something so festive about Kabobs. It brings us back to our childhood when little boys dream of eating things off of sharp sticks. 🙂
Honestly, they are just fun and I love to mix and match varying ingredients.
What many don’t realize is what a wonderful option Kabobs are for any kind of entertaining. They cook up so quickly, so they’re perfect to make ahead of time, allowing my poor hubby a little time away from the grill. While I often make kabobs on the grill, I’m sharing directions for doing them in the oven, giving you a bit more versatility.
You can sprinkle the kabobs with a little lime juice for another layer of flavor.
Consider quartering an onion or two, sprinkling them with some Thai seasoning, and skewering them with the pork.
These are just packed with flavor and I love them dipped in peanut sauce, but remember, there are so many options including my Easy Teriyaki Pork Kabobs.
P.S. Don’t forget to grab some skewers while you’re in the store.
