"After a wild night marinating in a slightly sweet soy sauce and lemon-lime mixture, sirloin steak chunks are skewered with veggies and grilled. You'll want to make these again and again!" — Kimber

garlic pepper seasoning
4 fluid ounces
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

green bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces

WONDERFUL ... Used 2lb London Broil. Started the marinade about 11pm. Created a 'quick' marinade for veggies - 2TBS garlic Olive Oil, some oregano and garlic. Tossed the veggies for a few minutes before putting on the skewers. While the Kabobs were grilling, put the left-over Beef Marinade in a small sauce pan and brought it to a slow boil. Grilled kabobs for only 9mins ... turning every 3mins ... They were juicy!!! Fortunately there was ample left-over meat (cooking for just my husband and I). After Dinner we grilled the remaining meat to be used later in the week for left-overs. YUMMY!!
Thought these were pretty good, but really nothing out of the ordinary. Although the meat was very tender, it just seemed to be lacking in flavor or something. Can't really put my finger on it! Alot of chopping!
AWESOME!!! These are the best shishkabobs I've ever tasted! I marinated the beef for a day and a half, and it was soooo tender and flavorful! As another reviewer suggested, for the veggies, I coated them with olive oil and sprinkled them seasoning salt and garlic salt before putting them on the skewers, and they were excellent! I will make these again and again!
YUMMY! This is a 5 star recipe for sure. I changed it a bit (not that it needed it, but I like to experiment and add my own touches) by substituting half of the lemon lime soda for Squirt citrus soda. I also added a tiny bit of liquid smoke. For the vegetables I used the ones in the recipe but added green zuchini and yellow zuchini. I got green, red and yellow bell peppers instead of just green. These were beautiful !! The tip of softening the peppers a bit prior to grilling worked like a charm. I did this only to the peppers and zuchini. This is the first time ever my boyfriend asked me to PLEASE make something again from all the recipes I have made from this site. Kids loved it too.
Update: I was excited to make this one again. This time I followed the recipe to the letter . This time NO ONE liked it :( including me. The first time I did changes and also didn't marinated it overnight. It was flavorful and tender. Not sure what happened this time. Maybe it was the sirloin cut, or the overnight marinating made the sirloin tough, but i always tought marinade tenderizes. I was not as flavorful as before.
Sensational! This definitely is a slightly sweet marinade that's almost like a teryaki. I used low sodium soy sauce, white wine vinegar, minced garlic vs. garlic powder and since I didn't have garlic pepper seasoning I opted to substitute 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika. I never marinated anything with soda before and this was a nice change from using oils. I put everything into a ziploc bag and marinated the sirloin overnight which I highly recommend. I skewered red and green peppers, red and vidalia onion and cherry tomatoes separate from the meat as they cook at different rates. This smelled great and tasted even better!
We found these kabobs to be scrumptios! I did have to make a few adjustments, and it was still fine. First, we had no pop, so I substituted lemonade, and second, I did not find good, fresh pineapple, so we left that out. However, these did not take away from the wonderful flavor. (The lemonade we used was the type made from frozen concentrate, not from powdered mix.)
I do recommend using a quality cut of meat. We did use really good sirloin the first time we made these, but the cut we used the second time was a little fatty, and it was not nearly as tender or flavorful.
White rice is a great side dish for these kabobs. The meat, veggies, and rice make a full meal... and a very good one, at that!
I made this recipe for guests, and it turned out very well. The pineapple was a nice change....I don't usually put pineapple on my kabobs, but it turned out well. Make sure to marinate the steak overnight so that it is nice and tender and flavorful.
This is a great recipe! My husband ranted and raved over the taste of the meat and my kids even loved it. It hardly took any time to make the marinate, the hard part now will be waiting the 8 hours while it marinates! My husband took the left overs to work (he is a fire fighter) and the guys called me to get the recipe so they can make it at work!
