What a great way to cook kebabs without having to turn on the barbecue! Who knew that cooking skewers in a pan would make them so absolutely delicious...

Meat skewers, the perfect recipe for any lunch or dinner, especially if you are bored of the usual slices of meat!  

And did you know you can  make them in a skillet and they will be even juicier than the barbecued version?

Skewers are prepared alternating pieces of meat and vegetables: you can use peppers, onions, but also zucchini and cherry tomatoes.

Use the vegetables and the meats you prefer, and as long as you make sure to cut the pieces in similar sizes, your meat kebabs will be absolutely amazing.

Of 3

Cook the Kebabs

In a large skillet (big enough so the skewers fit on the bottom, heat some evo oil.

When the oil is hot, place the skillets in a row and brown each side, turning them over with the help of thongs.

When all sides of the meat are brown, turn the heat down to medium and pour half a glass of wine in the skillet. 

Once the alcohol has evaporated, put the lid on and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning them over half way.

Serve hot.
