Family Favorite Kabobs Recipe

These hearty, meat-and-potato skewers have a little something to please everyone, from pineapple to pork. I cook these kabobs even in winter; I just shovel a path to the grill. —Dione Steffens, Dimmitt, Texas

"Nice refreshing marinade that doesn't take away from the flavor of the meat and veggies. Tenderizes the meat really well too!"

"This recipe is yummy, wonderful flavor & I will make it again for sure. I liked the idea of using pork."

MY REVIEW

"I halved this and made it for just myself and my husband AND then a couple weeks later, made it when my parents came to visit. It was a hit both times! I love the versatility of the recipe-- you can use other meat, and you don't have to use all the ingredients for the skewers if you don't want to. This makes a lot, but the leftovers are great as well!"
