This kebab recipe works well because all of the ingredients will be cooked to perfection at the same time. The marinade not only adds flavor but keeps the small pieces of top sirloin from drying out.

This is a very old and traditional Middle Eastern recipe. The trick is getting the meat to hold onto the skewers. Be gentle with them. As they cook the meat will harden and hold fast. You can serve these lamb kebabs by themselves of with a grilled pita and yogurt sauce.

These kebabs are coated in a balanced combination of Moroccan spices and placed on the grill. While they are extremely flavorful, these beef kebabs are not over the top spicy. It would be well worth it to give these delicious morsels try at your next cookout.

5. Tikka Boti

A popular South Asian dish, these kebabs are tender, fragrant and filled with flavor. The minced papaya is used to tenderize the meat, but does not present a fruit-like taste to the finished product. I recommend using long metal skewers for this dish and please do adjust the spiciness to suit your palate. You can also substitute the beef with lamb, chicken, pork, or even vegetables.

6. Chicken Yakitori

Yakitori are traditional style Japanese kebabs usually served by street vendors accompanied by a nice cold beer.

7. Chicken Tikka Kebabs

This is a traditional Indian recipe for grilling chicken. The rich marinade gives the chicken breasts a lot of flavor. Grill these kebabs hot and fast and you'll have a delicious meal.

8. Marinated Vegetable Kebabs

These quick and easy veggie kebabs make a great main or side dish. You can even put them together and freeze them for when you need a quick grilled meal.

9. Garden Kebabs

Whether as a side dish, or as a meal, these kebabs have a lots flavor and will satisfy any need. By grilling these indirectly you can get all the vegetables cooked without burning the surfaces.

10. Greek Style Lamb Kabobs with Pita and Tzatziki Sauce

This great lamb recipe from the American Lamb Board makes a fantastic pita sandwich. Keep your kebabs the width of your pita so you can simply slide the skewer off into your sandwich.
