Succulent Beef Skewers

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.”

    Bravo! This was amazing. I added a red onion and a green bell pepper, marinated separately to the skewers. The flavors are amazing. I had half an bottom round roast in the freezer that I used for this. Not as tender as a filet, but still amazing. Seriously folks, give this a try, you won't be disappointed.

    Excellent recipe! We were looking for a way to use beef tenderloins and this did not disappoint! They were so tender, moist and flavorful that I didn't even need to use and sauce to dip them in.

    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.
