"These skewers are quick and easy to make and taste terrific. With tender top sirloin, you don't need to marinate a long time to tenderize the meat, just long enough to impart the flavors of the citrus and garlic marinade. Serve over rice."

I doubled the amount of garlic right away. While these were marinating, I made myself a margarita. My son and husband loved the skewers, daughter didn't care for them, and I loved my margarita...

We made the minor tweaks mentioned by previous reviewers - increased the garlic, added pepper and red pepper flakes, omitted the sugar, added lime juice and lime zest, and soaked the skewers in ...

Fantastic recipe - the steak really picked up the flavor of the marinade. I soaked the bamboo skewers for 30 minutes in the marinade as well prior to threading them.

I followed the recipe except for the peppers. The marinade gave the meat a nice limey flavor. This was a welcome change from more traditional grilling marinades. I will definately make these ...

Easy & tasty! I also skipped the peppers in this recipe only because I'm the only one that likes them and I marinated them overnight.

My family really liked this meat. It was very easy to make, and I liked that it didn't have to marinate for hours or days. Thanks!

The first time I tried this, I followed the recipe exactly and it was OK. The second time I tweaked it to my tastes and it was very good. I omitted the sugar, minced 8 large garlic cloves, added...

Yummy, but I'd add a decent amount of lime juice to make sure it has that lime flavor.

Nice and mild - good. Will make again! Added extra garlic!

I've made this recipe several times now and we've used pork and chicken in it too. Easy and excellent. I'd like to try the strawberry margarita mix with chicken and see what happens...
