Teriyaki Shish Kabobs Recipe

Teriyaki Shish Kabobs Recipe

My father worked for an airline in the 1960's, when I was a teenager, and my family lived on the island of Guam in the South Pacific. A friend of Mother's there gave her this wonderful recipe. We ate this delicious warm-weather dish often, and now I prepare it for my family. —Suzanne Pelegrin, Ocala, Florida

"Very good! I took away a star only because the ketchup flavor what quite strong in the sauce, more than I'd like. However, it was still a good dish and I'd still make it again!"

"Yum! Like some other reviewers I substituted brown sugar for white and used chicken in place of beef. Marinated veggies as well as chicken for just 4-5 hours and it all turned out great! Not necessary to reserve and serve marinate as everything was nicely coated and flavorful. Will make again!"

"Very good - the sauce sticks well to the meat and used to baste as it cooked so the veggies were very flavorful. Might try brown sugar next time. Definitely a keeper for shish kabobs and would be great with chicken too."

"A dead simple marinade with great results. The ketchup in the marinade makes it thicker than most, so it clings to the meat well. I used beef tenderloin, and marinated it overnight. Next time I will try it on chicken. Makes a lot of marinade, plenty to do double the amount of beef in the recipe, plus all the vegetables."

"I have been using this recipe since the mid 1990's. I recently misplaced my paper copy and started to panic. Fortunately I found it again here in the on-line recipes. Relief! This recipe is very simple to make and I get terrific result every time. I made these kabobs again last night for company and once again the reviews were great and there were no leftovers! Wonderful recipe."

"This is one of my favorite ever recipes from Taste of Home. I usually make it with chicken breasts and grill 6 minutes per side. I've made it dozens of times and it's always very well received, I discard the sauce instead of reheating. It's great to have a wonderful easy recipe with items I ALWAYS have on hand!"
