Sous Vide Shish Kebab With Mixed Vegetables
For this delicious meal, you can use chicken breast, chicken thigh, pork, beef or lamb chunks and this is for you to choose, but I prefer pork chunks because they are the perfect match with mixed vegetables. So, what you will need to make this dish for four people.
– Pork chunks (2 kg)
– Vegetables (green squash, onion, mushrooms, paprika)
– Olive oil
Put the salted and peppered pork chunks in a sous vide bag and cook it for about 3 hours until they become soft. When the cooking is done, put the sous vide bag on ice for 20 minutes. After that cut chunks and vegetables into small bite-sized pieces and order them onto the skewers. Spread on the barbecue with the olive oil and turn it to high. When it’s heated, you can place skewers and cook until they begin to char. In the end, squeeze one lemon on the top before you serve the dish.
