It’s time to fire up the grill and make some...noodles? Okay, so you can’t grill noodles. Noted. But you can slather skewers in a drunken noodle–inspired BBQ sauce that is sweet, salty, tangy, a little spicy, and goes well with just about ANYTHING. Clean out your fridge with vegetables that are languishing in the crisper drawer, add meat (like cubed steak, pork, or peeled and deveined shrimp)—or go meatless if that’s your thing—and stick it all on a skewer. If you’re not sure what veggies to buy, go for whatever is the most colorful, like tomatoes, mixed peppers, and red onion. Just remember to cook marinated meat and vegetables on separate skewers because they cook at different times!
