The next step is to prepare the meats and vegetables you have chosen for their sojourn on the stainless steel grill.

Generally, the longer you marinate something, the more successfully it acquires the flavor of the marinade. There are a myriad of recipes for sweet, savory, spicy, smoky, or other marinades available to fit all tastes. It is also necessary to wash and cut the vegetables to the desired size. Seasoning vegetables with salt, pepper and maybe some herbs such as rosemary, basil or garlic is usually recommended.

If it is overcooked on a stainless steel grill, then it will be tough and chewy. Sweet shish kabobs should be cooked until they are caramelized. By following these steps and cooking vigilantly, you can serve wonderfully satisfying shish kabobs.
