6. Steak Kabobs

A big slab of steak is just SO good. But what makes them even better, is when you can cook them with the side foods and not use any actual dishes for prep! Let the BBQ do all the work to get mixed veggies and a tender steak.

14. Beef, Fig and Red Onion Skewers

Sometimes special occasions call for a little more effort than buying a package of hamburgers. Instead of opting for a roast beef birthday dinner for example, keep that BBQ burning so you can add some seriously classy gourmet skewers to it for a quick meal.
