"I use this great marinade not just for beef, but for everything I grill-from pork chops to chicken," notes Sue Sauer of Deer River, Minnesota. "The marinade's main ingredient-orange juice- is both low in calories and a good tenderizer."
Planning your Labor Day cookout menu will be no work at all when you have Trisha Ward's classic kabob recipe to call on. "Feel free to use cauliflower or other favorite vegetables," she suggests from Atlanta, Georgia.
This recipe combines some of my family's favorite flavors. The tender steaks, marinated with teriyaki sauce, are accompanied by a creamy cucumber sauce seasoned with dill and chives. I've used this dish as both an appetizer and an entree.
