I don’t make kebabs often. That just may change now! When I made these, I made them knowing full well that Grumpy did not “like” kebabs. I’m not totally sure of his reason for not liking them, but something tells me it has something to do with the peppers on kebabs. He’s not a big pepper fan. However, Grumpy ate these kebabs without complaint (his dad and stepmom were here. I tend to think he behaved pretty well for their benefit!
I served a Roasted Mushroom Quinoa and salad and bread with dipping oil. After we settled down for the evening, Grumpy asked me if there were any of “those kebabs” left over. I responded that that there were a couple and asked him if he would like them. According to Grumpy, they were very flavorful! I’ll definitely not be afraid to make kebabs again since Grumpy enjoyed these and I’ll definitely make them with this marinade again.
When it comes to the beef, I will only go with the best and that is Certified Angus Beef Brand®! Be sure to look for it at your local grocer. Not sure where to find it? Check out their locator on their website! I like to buy mine at our local Price Chopper. Last, but not least, if you are looking for a great marinade recipe, definitely try this one out!
