Balsamic-Glazed Beef Skewers Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2014

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.
