Not only are these kabobs one of my very favorite summer recipes, they take me back to childhood summers! Momma Daisy made these and I always thought they were such a treat! Besides being served on a stick (which makes everything a little more yummy), they are made with marinated beef, pineapple, green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and anything else your heart may desire. So fresh! We love them served with rice and ice cold lemonade.
2 lbs beef cut into 2 inch cubes
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Canola oil
2 tablespoons onion, grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2-3/4 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
16 mushroom caps, cleaned
2 large green peppers, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 red onions, quartered
Pineapple, cut into 1 inch pieces or substitute 16 oz can chunk pineapple
16 cherry tomatoes
Combine marinade ingredients in a large glass dish or gallon size zip-loc bag. Add beef and marinate for 4 hours.
If using wooden skewers, soak for 30 minutes before preparing kabobs. Alternate meat, veggies, and fruit, on skewers. Grill over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until done turning several times. These can also be made under the broiler - just set oven rack 2-3 inches below broiler. Serve with rice.
These are so much fun because they can be tailored to suite everyone's taste! We leave some without tomato and onion for my boys and add extra meat for my husband. I must say, pineapple, especially fresh, seems to be everyone's favorite! Change it up and make it yours - what are your favorite foods to eat on a stick?
