Balsamic-Glazed Beef Skewers

With only five easy-to-double ingredients, these mouthwatering kabobs are one of our favorite recipes. We like them with hot cooked rice and a tossed salad. To prevent wooden skewers from burning, soak them in water for 30 minutes before threading on the meat. —Carole Fraser, Toronto, Ontario

    Just made this tonight and it was great! I used red and green bell peppers instead of tomatoes on the skewers.

    These were good kabobs, I added peppers and onions to mine. You could you a bottled marinade in place of the barbecue sauce as well.

    These were very tasty. Beef was very tender but I do agree that the Bbq flavor is the dominant one. I marinated the meat in the sauce for 2 hours before grilling. Will definitely make again.

    These were good; we served them over rice and added chopped green onion.

    These are really delicious with beef. But I've also made them with chicken and just as yummy. I also skewer onions, orange and yellow peppers, as well as mushrooms. I have made this several times this summer and they always go over well. Super yummy!

    We liked it, it was a nice change and great use of my garden cherry tomatoes. It also fit ourr low carb high protein diet.

    not sure why this was called "balasamic glazed". It is so overpowering with barbecue sauce. Horrible! Waste to a piece of meat.

    Pretty good. I used stew beef and marinated the cubes in the mixture overnight. Tasty. Will make again.

    These were okay at best. Would I make them again? No way! I agree with the husband who said that they could have more flavor. They were lacking something and I am not sure what.

    OMG - I give this marinade a raving review! My husband said it was the best steak he's ever had! I followed the recipe and marinated overnight. I basted them at the end with the reserved marinade. I am going to make these again when our summer company arrives. Fabulous!
