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
Meet the Cook: Several years back, my sister-in-law brought this recipe on a family camping trip and we fixed it for an outdoor potluck. It was so delicious that I asked if I could have a copy to take with me. It's become a summer standard for us.
Making this dish is a team effort...I put the ingredients together, and my husband handles the grilling. We grow four kinds of wheat and canola on our farm, and we are the parents of four children - ages 18, 17, 15 and 11.

“I first tried this recipe after reading a similar one in a medical magazine in my doctor's office," says Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "It's easy, colorful, and the basting helps keep the kabobs juicy and tender.”
Sweet and tangy, these kabobs have a delicious kick, thanks to the hot pepper sauce. My recipe can be adapted to add your favorite vegetables. It's great with rice and a fresh salad. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least an hour or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”
When the executive decision was made to marinate veggies in a tasty bourbon sauce and serve with grilled bratwurst, this recipe made our VIP tailgate party list. —Mary Marlowe Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina
