Our Housemade Kabobs

5 kabobs from Zupan's Markets on a plate

Our housemade marinated kabobs are delicious all year long and are available in CHICKEN – created from Draper Valley’s Ranger boneless, skinless chicken breasts, PORK – created from Carlton Farms pork tenderloins, BEEF – created from Harris Ranch Teres Majors (shoulder tender), and LAMB – created from Anderson Ranch grass-fed lamb. We also carry a fresh selection of seafood kabobs on a rotating schedule. Mix and match to find your favorite flavor.

What makes our marinated kabobs really stand out? The meat is tumbled, making it especially delicious! Here, the solid meat and marinade is placed in a mechanical tumbler that rotates slowly, allowing the meat to knock together as well as on the sides of the tumbler. Tumbling loosens the protein strands in the meat, allowing the fat and muscle fibers to absorb liquid. Tumbling is the best way to get the full flavor of the marinade through the meat – up to 10% or more of the marinade will make it into the meat, whereas traditional marinating methods only allow for 1-2%!

How to Prepare

Kabobs are perfect for the grill, but also taste great broiled in the oven.

Grill Method:
Heat grill to medium-high heat and grill for 4-5 minutes per side, until desired doneness.

Oven Method:
Turn oven on broil, place kabobs on broiler or baking pan and broil for 6-8 minutes per side, until desired doneness.

Don’t forget your meat thermometer is the best way to ensure your kabobs are cooked thoroughly. When cooking a variety of proteins, cooking times will vary between proteins.
