An herb marinade is the secret to flavorful grilled beef and veggie kabobs.
Updated Sep 13, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 lb boneless beef top round steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 12 frozen half-ears corn-on-the-cob, thawed
  • 2 green or red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

Steps

  • 1
    In medium nonmetal bowl or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix oil, vinegar, thyme, red pepper and garlic. Add beef; stir to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, stirring beef occasionally, at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours to marinate.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoals grill. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade. On each of six 10- to 12-inch metal skewers, thread beef, corn and bell peppers alternately, leaving space between each piece. Brush with marinade.
  • 3
    Place kabobs on grill rack over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes for medium beef doneness, brushing with marinade and turning frequently. Discard any remaining marinade.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Always marinate food in a nonmetal dish. Acid-based marinades, such as those with lemon juice and vinegar, can react with some metals and cause off-flavor in the food.
  • tip 2
    A dried herb such as oregano, tarragon or rosemary sprinkled over hot coals just before grilling adds fragrance and flavor to the food.
  • tip 3
    About 3/4 cup bottled Italian dressing makes a quick substitution for the homemade marinade.
