Grilled Beef Kabobs

Many times, I must come up with recipes requiring only ingredients already in my pantry. This is one of them. It's my husband's favorite meat dish. —Dolores, Lueken, Ferdinand, Indiana

    Best kabobs I've ever made! I actually signed up for Taste of Home just so I could write this review. Usually Kabobs taste charred or dry to me, but these were just fantastic. So much flavor and not dry at all due to the basting of the marinade. Would make them again in a heartbeat. My beef was tender and worked fine. Great recipe!

    The sauce was tasty but my beef was a little tough. I must have used the wrong cut of beef - otherwise fabulously tasty - the veggies were superb and the marinade as a baste was very good - beef aside they were the best kabobs I have ever made.
