Beef and Veggie Ka Bobs

In the summer we spend as much time outdoors as we can and love to be in our outdoor kitchen grilling and cooking. The recipe for Ka Bobs that we are doing today is one of our oldies but goodies, its been around our family for a very long time. We have certainly tried different recipes that are very good, but we always go back to this one as our number one!

Beef and Veggies
2 pounds sirloin, cut in small pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped in medium pieces
1 red bell pepper, chopped in medium pieces
1 green bell pepper, chopped in medium pieces
10 to 15 small tomatoes, whole
10 to 15 very small onions or shallots, whole 
The Marinate
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
2/3 cup Ketchup
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
2 tablespoon Worcester
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
option: 2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
Cut the meat and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan melt the butter  and add the remainder of the marinate ingredients. Heat to medium heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Place the beef in a large zip lock bag and pour the cooled marinate over the beef, making sure that all the beef is covered. Zip the bag and refrigerate for 24 hours.
Wash and chop all the vegetables.
Alternate the beef and the vegetables on the skewers.
Grill on a medium hot grill for 6 minutes on both sides for medium and 8 minutes for medium well.
Be sure and keep your meat and veggies about the same size so they will cook evenly.
Double the marinate recipe and marinate the veggies for about 3 hours, this gives them great flavor.

  1. I love my kabobs and this sounds really different with the butter! I have liquid smoke but see it's optional, I'm curious if it's something you normally add... I've bookmarked it to try soon-thanks:@)

    1. Hi Lynn,
      I do use the Liquid Smoke, but you know some folks don't care for it, but here in Texas we like it. It really adds a lot of flavor and the butter makes it real rich and delicious. Hope you enjoy the recipe and thanks so much for stopping by!

  14. There's something fun about food on a stick! I often have trouble with kabobs--the veggies overcook and the meat is not done. I see from your pictures that the trick is very small pieces of meat.
    Thanks for sharing, Miz Helen.
