We've been making these for over a year now, and just got around to reviewing. They are killer! We make them at least once a month during grill season. Don't change anything. The longer you marinate, the spicier they get. Overnight, and they are hot. Don't serve to anybody scared of spicy food. Who wants to hang out with them anyway? Read More

I always make recipes to a tee first then adjust to my liking. These were good but holy salt batman. Why do you need any extra salt with 2T of beef bouillon? Next time I'll only use 1t of bouillon to the mix to see how it does. Read More

If you like spicy try this recipe! Made as written I gave five stars. Hubby would have given three as he doesn't have as much appreciation for spicy foods. Next time will tone down the cayenne just a hair and put in pitas with cucumber sauce- that'll shut him up... Read More

I entered this in our newspaper's recipe contest. Out of over 400 entries I was one of 27 finalists. I ended up getting 2nd in the appetizers division. I made short kabobs with only 5 cubes of beef on each and then stuck them into a voodoo doll made from shaped and baked bread. It was fun. I reduced the cayenne by half and still thought they were plenty hot. One of my family's newest all-time favorites. Great for Halloween or football parties. Read More

I didn't think these would be hot enough for my husband so I gave them a 6 hour marinate time. They were really HOT! Great with onions mushroom sourcream and tortillas. I would only suggest that you have to like food that makes you sweat! Read More

I skewered on some green & red bell peppers intermittently along with the steak. I used Ribeye in place of the sirloin. Served with Jasmine Rice (from this site) & grilled pineapple & peaches. Read More

I made this recipe for my husband and now he requests it at least once a week. I also made it for a barbeque and now my best friend is in love with it! I make a seperate version minus the cayenne for the kids. The recipe "as is" is pretty hot--one of our favorites! Read More

These were amazingly good. My huband and I LOVED them. They were pretty spicey but we like spice.:) I didn't have time to marinate them more than about 40min but they will still super flavorful. I alternated them with onions on the kebab sticks which was really yummy if you like onions too. A Read More
