- We have listed four methods from which you can choose to cook your skewers. They are listed in order of highest recommendation.
- Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat (about 375 degrees F). Brush the grill grates with cooking oil or coat with nonstick grill spray. Grill skewers turning every few minutes so that each side has grill marks until skewers can be cooked to a temperature of 125-130 for medium rare if desired*
- Broiler instructions: Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray. Place the skewers in a single layer on a sheet pan. Put the pan approximately 4 inches under the broiler and cook for 5 minutes, then flip the skewers and broil on the other side for 5 more minutes until desired temperature or the recommended 125-130 degrees*. Broilers are very sensitive, keep a close eye on your skewers as to not let them burn.
- Heat a skillet or fry pan on medium heat, once hot add 1-2 tablespoons oil once oil shimmers add skewers in batches making sure not to crowd the pan. Cook on each side until well caramelized and cooked to desired temperature or recommended 125-130 for medium rare*.
