We celebrated Canada Day with beef and veggie kabobs this year and they were pretty awesome. I have used this marinade for a couple of years now, because it is fast and easy to whip up and it adds a real bite to the meat. This was the first time for kabobs, though. The marinade worked well and the kabobs were delicious!
Makes 8 kabobs
1 lb beef, cut into 1″ cubes
2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into 1″ squares
1 large onion, cut into quarters, then each quarter cut in half
4 baby squash, quartered
1 serving Herb Lime Marinade (below)
Put all the kabob ingredients in a Ziploc bag with the marinade. Massage until everything is thoroughly coated and place in the fridge for up to 2 hours.
Soak the skewers for 15-20 minutes before starting.
Slide the items onto the skewers in the preferred order. I started with pepper and onion. You should have three pieces of beef per kabob and two pieces of baby squash.
Over a medium high grill, cook your kabobs, turning frequently, until the desired doneness of meat is reached.
