Grilling without the grill

When it's warm out, and it finally feels like summer, there is nothing better than a great cookout!  The fresh food, the firey grill, and the warm summer air, but what if you live in the city and don't have a grill?  

​Well, living in San Francisco, there are public grills, but we do not have a grill anywhere near our house.  Thankfully, with the flexible skewers from Outset Grill, I can still get a grill-style skewer made in my own kitchen! 

​For these skewers I diced up some chicken and top sirloin steak, with fresh veggies, and place them on the skewer.  I baked everything at 500 degrees for 10 minutes.  Personally, I like my steak well done, so this was the perfect temperature and time for the style of steak.  It was also enough to thoroughly cook the chicken without making the meat dry.

If you want to mix it up this summer with some innovative skewers, check them out here!

Life is crazy, and sometimes our schedules are even crazier! Avoid the temptation of a quick trip to the nearest fast food chain or deli by preparing your meals for the week in advance.  Just a few hours during the weekend and come the dreaded Monday morning, all you have to do is grab and go! 

Don't forget: What you put in, is what you get out.
