Grilled steak and potatoes are a classic dinner combination that everyone in the family can enjoy. While cooking your steak and potatoes on the grill separately is a great way to make this enjoyable meal, why not change things up and have a little fun with dinner tonight? Instead of making full-sized steak and potatoes, turn them into fun steak and potato kabobs to transform a plain grilled dinner into a fun-to-eat treat.
Making your own steak and potato kabobs is just as easy as grilling steak and potatoes! And you don’t need any special ingredients to put them together. To grill steak and potato kabobs, you’ll need:
- ribeye steak
- red potatoes
- garlic powder
- black pepper
In addition to these ingredients, you’ll also need kabob sticks to make your steak and potato kabobs. If using wood kabob sticks, take the time to soak the sticks in water before adding the ingredients to prevent the sticks from burning while your kabobs cook.
How to Make Steak and Potato Kabobs
Since the steak and potatoes cook at different speeds on the grill, making steak and potato kabobs requires a little bit of in-the-kitchen prep work before you can start cooking on the grill. First, cut all your ingredients into one-inch cubes. Do your best to keep all your pieces the same size to ensure your kabobs cook evenly.
Then, place your cut potatoes in a steam basket and steam them for around five minutes, until they’re just beginning to soften. If you don’t have a steam basket at home, simply boil the potatoes directly in the pan. Make sure not to cook your potatoes too long or they’ll be too soft to put on your kabob sticks. After the potatoes have cooked, strain them and run the cooked potatoes under cold water to stop the cooking process and help cool them more quickly.
When your potatoes are ready, begin threading your ingredients on the kabob sticks, alternating between steak pieces and pieces of potato. Leave around two inches of the kabob sticks exposed on the bottom for easier handling.
Finish prepping your kabobs by seasoning them with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley. Make sure to flip the kabobs to season both sides before grilling.
Place the prepared steak and potato kabobs on a hot grill over indirect heat. Close the lid on the grill and cook the kabobs for 10 to 12 minutes. Take the time to flip the steak and potato kabobs halfway through the cook time to ensure both sides of the kabobs are cooked through.
HOW DO YOU MAKE GRILLED STEAK AND POTATOES KABOBS?
No marinade is needed! Whisk together the seasonings for the steak and potatoes. Thread the deliciously seasoned steak and potatoes onto your skewers, cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, and you have mouthwatering grilled steak and potatoes skewers!
These skewers are pretty versatile and can be cooked on an outdoor or indoor grill, or broiled in the oven. Whichever way you choose to do it, be sure to soak your wood skewers in cold water for at least 20 minutes to keep them from burning. Wooden skewers have a tendency to burn, catch on fire, and then easily break when trying to eat off of them. Soaking the skewers helps with all of those issues.
Place the potatoes in a steam basket and steam over boiling water until just tender, around eight minutes.
Thread the steak and potatoes onto kabob sticks, alternating between pieces of steak and pieces of potatoes. Leave two to three inches on the end of the kabob stick to make it easier to hold.
Season the kabobs with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley.
Place the kabobs on a hot grill and close the lid. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping the kabobs halfway through the cooking time.
WHAT IS THE BEST AND SAFEST WAY TO EAT FROM A SKEWER?
The safest way to eat from a skewer is by sliding the finished ingredients off on to a dish instead of eating straight from a stick. Usually, it’s not a problem for adults to eat it straight from the skewer. However, it’s advised that children have their skewer disassembled and placed in a dish for consumption.
