Directions

  1. Place the zucchini, bell pepper, and pineapple in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss to coat. Divide the mixture into freezer bags. Whisk the ketchup, salt, steak sauce, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and water together in the same bowl until smooth. Add the beef cubes, and toss until evenly coated. Divide the beef into freezer bags. Seal, and freeze the bags.
  2. To cook: take as many bags as you need from the freezer, and thaw in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours. Soak the skewers in warm water at least 30 minutes, or place into water when you begin thawing the meat and vegetable packets.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Make the skewers by alternating beef, vegetables, and pineapple on the skewers. Discard any remaining marinade.
  4. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning occasionally until cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 10 minutes total for medium-rare.

Mmmm, these were SO GOOD! I loved how the beef was juicy, but not oily or herby like other kabob recipes. Instead of freezing them, I just put the vegetables and meat in 2 separate small ziplock...

the best kebab i've ever made.... my husband loves the recipe

good idea for the beef,but i waited till ready to make for veggies because they get soggy when thawed from frozen and it only takes a short time to cut them up fresh

Great marinade for the steak!

A big hit! Used no zucchini (Not on hand) but more green and red and orange peppers. Didn't freeze but made it for 2 days in a row. Really love it!
