We love to grill, and we love Asian cuisine. However, I’m not always sure how to put the two together. Often I will make stir fry with my own sauces on the stove, but out on the grill it’s difficult to do. Plus, while I love stir fry, it doesn’t have that delicious searing flavor like when we grill meat and veggies.
Then, I discovered the NEW P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu sauces at Walmart when I was picking up groceries just the few days ago. It’s exclusively at Walmart in the Asian aisle. I have found these sauces are perfect for grilling made simple!
One of our favorite meals to grill is kabobs. They are very simple, don’t heat up the kitchen, and cook pretty quickly out on the grill. We made them over the weekend and instead of just adding a bit of salt and pepper to flavor, we decided to baste them in the new Sesame P.F. Chang’s® sauce. You will not believe how easy this is.
I like to buy sirloin steaks and then cut them up and remove any tough pieces for making kabobs.
Our favorite veggies for Asian stir fry and for kabobs are mushrooms, onions, and zucchini, which are all sliced up for the kabobs.
When all your ingredients are sliced up, it’s time to skewer everything. I like to use the metal skewers as they are sturdier. You can use bamboo skewers, but you’ll have to soak them ahead of time and they often get a little burned up on the grill.
There is no wrong or right way to make kabobs. I tend to like the flavor onion adds to zucchini, so I tried to stick those pieces together and then varied everything else. I also found I like to start and end with a piece of meat to hold it all together.
Next, baste all sides of the kabobs in the Sesame P.F. Chang’s® sauce.
Then, it’s time to heat up the grill. We have a gas grill and for kabobs we heat it up to a medium heat. This can take a bit longer on a charcoal grill, where you’ll be looking for the fire to die down and just have that orange glow of the briquettes.
Make sure you oil the grill down with some olive oil before you put the kabobs down so they don’t stick. We use a olive oil spray made for grills. You can also paint the grill with a basting brush and some olive oil.
When you’re ready to grill, know that kabobs cook pretty quickly. My family prefers medium or medium rare steak, so we cook them for about 2 1/2-3 minutes per side for a total of about 10-12 minutes each.
As they’re grilling, I baste the sauce onto the kabobs a couple more times. Then, once we check for done-ness of steak, it’s time to take them off the grill. So simple!
