Garden Bounty Beef Kabobs Recipe

Garden Bounty Beef Kabobs Recipe

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
