Balsamic-Glazed Beef Skewers Recipe

Balsamic-Glazed Beef Skewers Recipe

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
