Marinade for Beef Kebabs

    25 mins

    I use this delicious marinade for beef kebabs before barbecuing or grilling them. I like to marinate the meat for 3 days so note the total time does not include marinating time.

    Deeelish! My family and I love this, and guests "wow!" at it, too! I tweak it a little: just 1 cup vegetable oil plus 1 cup good olive oil, and then cut the white wine vinegar to 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup red vine vinegar. This will become your exclusive steak marinade!  -  03 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the GREATEST beef marinade. I used it for a london broil cut and I marinated for 8 hours, not three days and it was still delcious. This receipe make a lot of marinade so I would cut the recipe in half for shish kabob pieces. Thanks!  -  30 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the best beef marinade we have ever run across. We add 3 - 4 cloves of minced garlic, either fresh or store bought in a jar, and marinate tri-tip in a gallon Zip-Lock for the three days. It's fantastic every time and every one who tries it has to have a copy of the recipe! Enjoy!!  -  30 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
