Kielbasa and Potato Kabobs with Mustard Marinade
Kielbasa, sliced about 1/2" thick-on the diagonal just for looks...
small potatoes (approx 1"), cooked until just barely done, not over done or mushy
sweet onion and green bell pepper, cut up
- Alternate food onto skewers (if wooden soak in water for 30 minutes)
3 Tblsp oil-I used olive oil but would try vegetable next time
3 Tblsp vinegar-I used cider
3 Tblsp mustard-I used Dijon but think any kind would be fine
2 Tblsp honey-my addition-I felt this marinade needed something sweet
1 Tblsp soy sauce
1 Tblsp hot sauce, optional-I used Crystals Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 clove garlic, minced-big or small, you know your crowd:@)
- Whisk everything together and pour over skewered kabobs. Let marinate while the grill heats up.
- Grill until onions and peppers are cooked to your liking.
- First and foremost... I'm on a mission to find stainless steel skewers! Don't like the way wooden ones splinter while adding food and burn during cooking, they are still good for removing air bubbles during canning though.
- This amount of marinade is good for about 8 kabobs. I laid the kabobs in a 9x13 pan and poured it over them, then turned them while the grill heated up. Since my kielbasa was fully cooked I had no issue with basting the kabobs with the marinade as they cooked.
- I used two skewers so I could turn the kabobs without the food spinning, this worked very well.
- Could I have made this in my grill pan? Absolutely! And it would have been a nice quick week night dinner on a gas grill.
- I try to think ahead before firing up the grill, what else can I cook for later in the week? Could be something as simple a hotdog for a pork and beans lunch on Monday.
- Other kabob combos: Chicken, zukes, peppers, onions and Italian dressing. Teriyaki Beef with peppers and onions. Ham (or chicken), peppers, onions, pineapple and hot sauce. If you have a fun one please leave a comment!
