"We have modified the recipe to put in a grill pan with holes on the BBQ. It is then more like a stir-fry. We love to entertain

with it on the menu."

"Oh my gosh! These were soooo good. I like to add my own twist to recipes, so for this one, I took the reserved marinade and mixed in some corn starch then heated it in a small pan on medium. Near the end of the grilling time I brushed that thicker glaze on to the kabobs and it was terrific. I will make this recipe again; this has been one of the best new recipes I've tried!"
