Summertime is all about enjoying life, taking it easy, and relishing in the gorgeous weather.
…said the NYer that would rather run around in circles than do nothing all day… hehe
In other words, we didn’t gain three hours of daylight to cook gourmet meals!
Ladies, take the apron off and put the whisk down! That’s an order!
In honor of casual summer dinners, here’s one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever see!
For a double win, if you have kids, it’s fun to make as a family also. Put the kids to work. Hah!
(1) Bottle Teriyaki Sauce
(2lbs) Meat Of Choice
Be creative! I’ve used pork cubes, chicken cubes, and even Shrimp!
(1) Large Red Pepper-Cubed
(1) Large Yellow Pepper-Cubed
(2) Sweet Red Onions-Cubed
(1) Package Baby Bella Mushrooms-Sliced
(1) Package Wooden Skewers
The night before, clean all of your meat/veggies and chop into similar sized cubes. Once this is done, fill (2) large Ziploc bags with half a bottle of teriyaki sauce each. Put all the vegetables into one bag and the meat into another. Make sure all the veggies/meat are fully covered in sauce, and let marinate until dinner time the next day.
It’s so nice to have dinner almost ready to go when you get home. I totally love that feeling!
An hour before dinner, heat up your light the grill and get it ready for cooking! Meanwhile, fill your wooden skewers with your preferred pattern of meat and vegetables. After all of the skewers are filled, place them on the barbeque until they are perfectly cooked. Make sure to periodically turn the skewers so everything is cooked evenly on all sides.
Unfortunately, my apartment doesn’t have a grill. I rock this recipe on my broiler instead. Yum!
Will you or have you tried this quick summer recipe?
