Reviews for Balsamic-Glazed Beef Skewers
"These were good; we served them over rice and added chopped green onion."
"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!"
"We liked it, it was a nice change and great use of my garden cherry tomatoes. It also fit ourr low carb high protein diet."
"not sure why this was called "balasamic glazed". It is so overpowering with barbecue sauce. Horrible! Waste to a piece of meat."
"Pretty good. I used stew beef and marinated the cubes in the mixture overnight. Tasty. Will make again."
"These were okay at best. Would I make them again? No way! I agree with the husband who said that they could have more flavor. They were lacking something and I am not sure what."
"OMG - I give this marinade a raving review! My husband said it was the best steak he's ever had! I followed the recipe and marinated overnight. I basted them at the end with the reserved marinade. I am going to make these again when our summer company arrives. Fabulous!"
"My husband and kids loved this. It was so simple. I broiled it rather than grill. We thought is was very flavorful. We will make again soon."
"These were pretty good. My husband said they were just "ok" - and thought they could have more flavor. I would make again."
