30-Minute Lamb Tikka Kebab Recipe
Often, busy lives get in the way of preparing nutritious meals, but this should not be the case. Quick meals do not equate to fast food. While it is great to have these options, they aren’t exactly the healthiest. You can make healthy cuisine in as short as 30 minutes. Believe it or not, a kebab recipe is one of them.
Originating from the Middle East, kebabs have spawned many variations over the years. Kebab skewers consist of cut-up or ground meat and will sometimes include vegetables. Traditionally cooked over a spit, some in an oven, pan, or stovetop. Beef, chicken, fish, goat, shrimp, and the occasional pork are common ingredients, but if you want the flavors of a classic kebab, go for mutton or lamb. Read on to learn how to make kebabs at home.

Usually, kebabs are cooked more efficiently by grilling the skewered meat over an open flame. In regions where kebabs are part of the everyday diet, large grilling stations can accommodate dozens of skewered meats. Grilling gives any kebab recipe a nice smoky flavor and distinct grill marks. Cooking kebabs on a cast iron skillet can be a little limiting, especially if you intend to feed a large group. But a cast-iron skillet gets the job done perfectly for home cooking. The smoky taste may be a little subdued, but you still get the full meaty flavors and juiciness of kebabs marinated with Knorr Beef Cube. So, which one is better? It all boils down to preference. Either method produces filling and protein-rich foods in minutes. Take our kebab recipe and add your choice of vegetables. Popular options aside from tomatoes and onions are corn, zucchini, mushrooms, and cauliflower. Add pineapples, watermelon, peaches, and ripe plantains for a tropical flair.
