1

Prep and cook your protein

Sausages:

  • Pat dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. 

 

Chicken: 

  • Pat dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into ¼-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

 

Steaks:

  • Pat dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned and medium-rare, 6 to 8 minutes for top sirloins and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

 

Pork chops:

  • Pat dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

 

Plant-based chicken: 

  • Pat dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the plant-based chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and heated through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.

 

While your protein is cooking and resting, prepare the vegetables and assemble the skewers.

Prep the vegetables; assemble the skewers

  • Remove the stems and seeds from the sweet mini peppers; cut the peppers into 2-inch pieces.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half lengthwise; keep any small mushrooms whole.
  • Peel and cut the onion into 8 equal wedges, keeping the end of each wedge attached at the root.

In a large bowl, combine the sweet mini peppers, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, chili powder, and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Using 6 [12] wooden skewers, thread the vegetables onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients.

3

Cook the vegetable skewers

In the same pan used for your protein, working in batches if needed, add the vegetable skewers and cook over medium-high heat, turning once, until the vegetables are lightly browned and starting to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.

Serve

Transfer your protein and vegetable skewers to individual plates and serve with the romesco sauces.
