With only five easy-to-double ingredients, these mouthwatering kabobs are one of our favorite recipes. To prevent wooden skewers from burning, soak them in water for 30 minutes before threading on the meat. We like them with hot cooked rice and a tossed salad. —Carole Fraser, Toronto, ON

"These are really delicious with beef. But I've also made them with chicken and just as yummy. I also skewer onions, orange and yellow peppers, as well as mushrooms. I have made this several times this summer and they always go over well. Super yummy!"

"not sure why this was called "balasamic glazed". It is so overpowering with barbecue sauce. Horrible! Waste to a piece of meat."
