Probably one of the easiest meals ever made, meat and veggies on a stick roasted over an open flame have been a part of man-kinds meals since the beginning of time. The cavemen roasted their kills over a large fire spinning them over and over on a spit until they were evenly cooked. The shish kebab is merely a miniaturized version of that technology, perfected by Middle Eastern cultures and used prominently in Greek and Meditteranean lands as well.

The basic construction of a shish kebab is simple. All you need is a bamboo skewer, chunks of meat cut to the same size, and a handful of yummy vegetables. Arrange the meat and veggies on the stick, try to center the stick when you push it through the items, and then lay it over a grill or open fire, and turn them every once in a while as they cook. The meat and veggie flavors combine and blend and the ease of cooking makes it a great meal idea. The best part is that most men refuse to let moms near the grill, so you can always hand this meal over to your significant other to give him a chance to wear his “King of the Grill” apron.

Here’s a great collection of kebab recipes featuring chicken, beef, lamb and even fish.
