Blade Shish KabobsInstagram #txbut030
Had made some shish kabobs several months ago and don’t know why these aren’t made as much as I make tacos. You can put all kinds of ingredients on a stick! Shrimp, chicken, and my favorite flat iron steak. The rice idea came from a friend's pork chop slow cooker recipe that looks ugly as hell but taste fantastic. Didn’t mention the stuffed mushrooms because I think they could used some more love. I’ll redo that one soon.
- 1 flat iron or blade steak cubed
- 2 tbsp Dawgs Bark
- 1 purple onion in squares
- 2 poblanos squared
- 3 pineapple slices cut like pizza
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 dash Cottonmouth on pineapple optional
- 2 cans french onion soup
- 1 can worth of rice
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 dash of salt
I cooked these on the grill on the far side of the coals. My temps shot up once but it didn’t screw up the kabobs.
Cut flank long ways down the middle then cross the grain to get 1 ½ to 2 inch cubes.
In a plastic bag put the meat, olive oil, and Dawgs Bark. Squish it around to get meat coated evenly.
I didn’t let meat mixture absorb the seasoning like normal. Was handling the meat so much by the time I got it on the sticks and ready for pit the meat had got up to room temp.
This is a good time to start pit.
Sprinkle Cottonmouth over pineapple if ya want.
These were slid on 1st meat, pineapple, poblano, meat, pineapple, purple onion, meat, and last poblano. You can stack however you want. To keep from splitting veggies hold bottom of kabob and turn/spin point into the veggie like a soft drill. It will make a hole for you.
I got my grill to 350 with a thermometer, it has a lead that helped me keep that temp just by adjusting dampers. It shot up to 400 for probably 30 minutes but everything went OK in the end. As always this is doable in the oven.
So put them on grill far away from coals or where you're getting 350 degrees.These cooked for 1 hour and turn put a nice medium rare. I would guess another 30 minutes would get you to medium. Didn’t touch them throughout.
While you got the meat going in a small/medium pot heat to medium.
Drop in butter to melt then drop in rice and stir around until you start to smell “toasty”.
Strain onions from soup and pour in the toasty rice.
Bring to boil, slow to simmer, cover, and check in 7 minutes for doneness.
Get yer yum yum on!
This net 5 kabobs.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made and noted on the fly. If you don't have any Texas Butter I guess we'll overlook it if you use what's in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can't spell worth a crap. Will hashtag recipes that match a search here and the same hashtag in the Instagram's image comments.
