Sweet & Sour Beef Kabobs

While a perfectly seasoned and grilled steak takes first place on my list of “favorite ways to eat beef,” flavorful beef kabobs are a close second. Truly.

Not only are they delightfully flavorful, but they’re so darn handy! We make them in bulk on the weekends and the enjoy the leftovers for days. They make a nice addition to a hearty salad over some steamed broccoli with cauliflower rice. So many possibilities!

Sweet & Sour Beef Kabobs

The sweet & sour marinade is mega. You’ll want to use it on EVERYTHING.

I especially enjoy beef and veggie kabobs during tailgates and other gameday celebrations because they’re a low-maintenance food. You can hold the stick and just nibble away.
