There’s more than one way to cook a kabob. We love creating kabobs since you can mix and match your favorite vegetables and protein to create a delicious dish. To upgrade a traditional kabob, we used Mazola® Corn Oil to make a marinade and paired with bowls full of vegetables. Since September is National Cholesterol Awareness month, this is an awesome time to learn more about corn oil and its benefits. And, since a clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil, corn oil is a staple that you need for your pantry. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. It has a variety of uses including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing.
To upgrade a traditional Mexican bowl, I made some health-friendly ingredient swaps. Reduce saturated fats and cholesterol in your meals easily with simple swaps, such as substituting butter with Mazola Corn Oil. I used Mazola Corn Oil in place of butter and other oils. I used brown rice instead of white rice, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and vegetable options instead of cheese and other traditional taco toppings. Trust me, with all these vegetables, you won’t need anything else but what you see here!
To make a kabob, we used tomatoes, peppers, onions, green peppers, red peppers, and a thick cut of beef. You may also like potatoes or eggplant on your kabob. The more vegetables, the better!
Create a marinade with Mazola Corn Oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, parsley, salt, and cilantro. Marinade the kabobs in this before you broil them.
- 1 pound of beef (you can use your favorite cut, we enjoy flank steak or a thick steak)
- 1 green pepper
- 1 red pepper
- 1 white onion
- 1 large tomato
- 1 cup of Mazola® Corn Oil
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 1 tsp parsley
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp Greek yogurt
- 1 package of brown rice
- 1 zucchini
- To prepare your kabobs ahead of time, use bamboo skewers. Cut the beef into large chunks. Chop peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Assemble by sliding beef and vegetables in an alternating pattern onto the kabob.
- Prepare the marinade by combining corn oil, garlic, cilantro, parsley, and red pepper flakes.
- With a brush, coat the kabobs.
- Heat oven and use the broil setting.
- Broil for fifteen minutes or until at desired doneness.
- While the kabobs are cooking, prepare brown rice according to package instructions. We love to use our rice cooker since it cooks quickly!
- As a bonus, we spiralized a zucchini for an additional bowl option.
