Ronda Karbo shared a soy sauce marinade that we used on colorful beef and vegetable kabobs. "When our grill comes out tin the spring, this is the first recipe my family asks me to make," says the Russell, Minnesota reader. "You can also use this marinade on six pork chops or a large piece of round steak cut into serving-size pieces."
Balsamic vinegar and fresh herbs are combined in a marinade that gives great flavor to the tender cubes of steak on Joyce Triggs' shish kabobs. Along with the beef, she skewers mushrooms, zucchini and cherry tomatoes for an easy, well-balanced meal in her Thibodaux, Louisiana kitchen.
