    I've used this recipe for years. It's a great dish for cook-out company, but equally good for a family meal. Really delicious!

    The marinade on these was great. I forgot to soak my skewers, so we ended up eating these like steak strips. As long as you remember to marinade, this makes for a quick meal.

    Really good, easy and quick. Don't even need to add sauce or anything after grilling.

    I just made this recipe for dinner tonight. It was so delicious! Even my picky eaters loved it. The marinade was so light and flavorful. It was a great, very quick and easy fall meal. I wish I had this recipe at the beginning of the summer. I can't wait to try it on chicken and burgers as well.

    This one went over extremely well with my somewhat picky daughter and my extremely picky husband. Fried rice would make a great accompaniment.
