"This is a very tasty recipe of a shish kebab. I can not wait to try to cook it. I absolutely love this dish and think the smell of shish kebab is an essential sign of warm weather even in the city, what to say about those who spend time outdoors. But I think that the secret of delicious shish kebab is proper pickle, especially when it comes to beef. There a special approach needs, marinades should contain so-called aggressive additives: – citric acid, – vinegar, – red wine, etc. Here you can find more information https://pinkycloud.com/beef-shish-kebab-secrets-of-pickling-of-meat. I'm sure with such marinade the shish kebab according to this recipe will be even tastier. But my friend, an expert in the preparation of a shish kebab is convinced that the main thing is - it is the meat, its quality and the method of cutting. Ribs plate - this is the best for quality meat in the beef carcass. Here you can find out more about beef cuts http://missourigrassfedbeef.worstellfarms.com/2014/02/missouri-beef-cuts-buy-bulk-cheaper.html It is tender, soft, cooked very quickly, and it is almost impossible to mess up. If you want a good kebabs of beef, do not be lazy to go to the market and choose the part of the beef carcass."

"OMG. This was an A recipe. I will definitely be making this again. I am one of those people who detests chewy beef. I got some top sirloin beef from a local butcher and marinated it for 4 hours. This was absolutely delicious. I did 6 skewers of mixed beef, vegetables and onions and put all the remaining beef on 2 more skewers. This is a winner."

"This recipe was super easy. I used the pineapple juice from canned pineapple. I boiled the kabobs in the oven since I currently don't have a grill. It took longer to cook but tasted great. It's a great gluten free option if you use gf soy sauce."
