We had a long day of hiking around through the mountains yesterday, and when we came home, I just wanted to make something quick and easy-peasy for dinner. I had marinated some steak before we left, then cut them up and cubed them for kebabs when we got home. Dinner was a kebabed theme. I also made some mushroom and pearl onion kebabs to go with the meat. Everything went on the grill, and I served them with some couscous and pita bread and a smooth shiraz. Simple, easy-peasy and delicious. My favorite way to cook!
These only take a few basic ingredients and only a few minutes to make. But they will just melt in your mouth. Simple is my favorite way to cook, and if it is simple AND delicious, BONUS!
Grilled Mushroom Kebabs
16 pearl onions
20 mushrooms, stems cut and rinsed
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup butter
1 TBSP garlic
salt & pepper to taste
Boil the pearl onions for 5 minutes to loosen the skins. Remove the onions from the water and peel the skins.
Mix the balsamic vinegar, butter, garlic and salt and pepper together and microwave for about 30 seconds to melt the butter. Combine everything together thoroughly.
Stack the skewers, alternating between mushrooms and onions.
Brush the onions and mushrooms with the balsamic butter mixture. Place on the grill to cook for about 12 minutes, turning at least a couple of times to make sure everything cooks properly and to get good grill marks.
When these are done, serve them alongside your favorite mains, and you have a quick, easy-peasy and very tasty dish. The grilled mushrooms are going to be very earthy and hearty, and with the balsamic butter mixture, they are like flame-kissed goodness. Enjoy.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. Happy Holidays. ‘Til next time.
