My father worked for an airline in the 1960's, when I was a teenager, and my family lived on the island of Guam in the South Pacific. A friend of Mother's there gave her this wonderful recipe. We ate this delicious warm-weather dish often, and now I prepare it for my family.

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.”
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.”
This is our favorite cookout dish, and it's very good served with a salad. This recipe originated here in my hometown in the 1930's. Our meat preference for speidis is venison, but we use others when it's not available.
These hearty kabobs combine beef and sausage, two of my favorite foods. Both the meat and vegetables are marinated before they're grilled, which makes this skewered meal extra flavorful. Be sure to fire up your grill and try these soon!

You'll make any get-together special with these attractive kabobs. Cubes of marinated steak are skewered with shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, green peppers and onions, then grilled. For picnics, I assemble the kabobs at home and carry them in a large container.
