It's time to dust off your grill and start thinking about a summer full of delicious barbecued meals. For Lisa Lavery of the CHOW Test Kitchen, nothing's tastier, or easier, than skewering some marinated beef and veggies and dropping them on the grill. She shares her simple technique for making our Beef and Vegetable Shish Kebabs in this week's episode of The Easiest Way.
Easy Crab Cakes
