The kitchen is not my husband’s area of expertise. He has difficulty making instant noodles. They’re instant, all you need to do is add water. I don’t understand either. But this mother’s day, he ventured into relatively unknown territory. He decided to be the best husband ever, refused to let me do anything on the day. I admit I had the take out menus ready on standby justttt in case something went awry and we needed dinner fast. To my surprise, I never needed to use them!
He made these to die for beef kabobs that had our whole family clamouring for more. Sure he had to ask me what measuring cups were, where we kept our soy sauce and now to cut an onion… But other than that, he knocked my socks off with this dish. This man can do whatever it is he puts his mind to — and then beat anyone at it!He cut up cubes of sirloin steak, marinaded the meat, along with all the vegetables for the better part of half a day. Skewered them up and grilled on the BBQ for 10-15 minutes. Because of the lemon juice, it gives a good tangy note to the beef, which to me was unusual in a beef marinade. But it was so good!
He modified a version of this All Recipes Recipe
1/3 cup grape seed oil (or use Veg. Oil)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice (he juiced two lemons)
1 tbsp. dijon mustard
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. salt
He omitted the worcestershire from the original recipe because we didn’t have any on hand.
– Whisk all together, combine marinade, meat, and veggies into a plastic bag to coat.
– This marinade is good for about 1.5-2 lbs of meat. We used sirloin steaks cut into cubes. You can put whatever you want on your skewer. He used mushrooms, red and yellow bell pepper, white onion. We marinaded all the vegetables with the beef before skewering everything up.
Some other good skewer options are: pineapple, zuchhini, bacon slices, eggplant.
I might have to re make these for father’s day, hopefully I’ll do a good job or I’ll hear about it for the rest of my days. 😉
Enjoy and hopefully everyone had an amazing Mother’s Day!
