Reviews for Succulent Beef Skewers
"This was fantastic! I was looking for something besides the lemon/soy/garlic/mustard marinade that so many of us use for steak. Splurge for the fresh herbs, go heavy on them and only use 1 clove of garlic. This was beautiful and not too salty for BBQ beef kebabs. Made 4 large meat kebabs - feeds 4-6."
"I'm a sucker for meat on a stick and these are so yummy!"
"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."
