These classic kabobs are a hearty way to use up your garden harvest. At our house, everyone fixes their own skewers for an all-in-one dinner. I sometimes substitute venison for beef. —Christine Klessig of Amherst Junction, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2014

these were so, so good! i really love the dipping sauce! the marinade isn't overpowering - just really enhances the beef. we used pre-cut stirfry meat but next time will opt for the sirloin. our propane tank was empty so we did them in the oven - just 10 min at 450 and they were just right. will definitley make again and again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 25, 2009

Easy to make and pleasantly surprised how good it was because I used stewing beef and only marinaded for 30 mins. The dipping sauce taste like onion dip you use with potato chips, but took on a whole new flavor with the grilled vegetables. We even dipped the marinated beef in the dipping sauce, very good!
