This is a very simple and delicious marinade for beef kabobs. I cut the recipe in half for about 1.5 lbs. of meat. I used olive oil instead of veg.oil, low sodium soy sauce, and dijon for the prepared mustard. I left out the meat tenderizer, put everything into a ziploc bag and marinated it for over 24 hours. I skewered the meat separate from the peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes as they cook at different rates. The meat was very tender and full of flavor - perfect with a side of rice.

There are a lot of ingrediants in exchange for little flavor. The taste was "fine" but I didn't think it was all that flavorful. I might add a little cumin or cayenne pepper if I were to use again.

This marinade is something else! My boyfriend and I made shrimp and steak kabobs tonight using this marinade. I only had about 4 hours to marinade but it turned out amazing. I can only imagine what a steak would taste like after 24 hours in this stuff. I wouldn't change a thing! I made a double batch and not only marinated the steak but also the shrimp, mushrooms, carrotts, and zucchini. I used a seperate bag for the veggies. Also, used a low sodium soy sauce and used as much as the recipe called for and it was excellent, not too salty at all. I would give it more stars if I could!

Guess what? We tried it on venison. We cut back on the oil and rather than msg we used montreal steak spice for a bit more zip. All I can say is WOW!!

FANTASTIC!! I doubled the recipe and let a combination of sirlion and chicken chunks marinate for several hours. I reserved some to brush on while cooking. I also used pineapple chunks, cherry tomatoes, green peppers, red onions, and mushrooms on our kabobs. I cooked them under the broiler and brushed the kabob with the marinade several times during cooking. I will be using this again and again.

Made the meat very tender. Very Good! Next time I will add a little more spices. My son and his friend just walked in and grabbed a kabob. My son's friend said the meat is very flavorful. After eating the leftovers my husband said to come back and change my rating to Excellent (5 stars).

excellent! the mustard really gives this a good taste!! i doubled the recipe and used about 6 cloves of garlic plus maybe 1/2 t. of garlic powder. Marinate your steaks overnight grill em 4-6 min on each side. perfect!!

I made this for my mom's birthday and everyone RAVED over it!! Our neighbors were intrigued by the smell and so now I have to give out tons of copies of this recipe!! What a hit! I used about 3/4 cup oil and instant beef broth and seasoning mix instead of the msg. I also used Bragg Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce (they have the SAME taste and both are made of soy beans, Braggs is just way healthier). We will use again and again!!!!!
