Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least an hour or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”

Also wanted to add that I did marinade them overnight.

This is an excellent marinade. Steak was juicy, tender and very flavorful. I added Worcestershire sauce to the marinade, used Rosemary Garlic Seasoning for the Rosemary and reduced the dried thyme to just a pinch. Family loved it, will make again. Next time, at hubby's suggestion, I will add some red onion pieces in between the steak pieces. Thank you for the recipe! :)

You must try this one - it is a terrific marinade. IF you have leftovers, there will be an argument about who gets them. I used about 2 T. brown sugar just because....

This is a family favorite. I use it for not only kabobs, but also flank steaks and london broil. It's truly succulent and requested again and again.
