I love grilled anything, so once it gets warm enough to fire up the grill, I am all about it. I tend to gravitate more towards red meat in the summer since I think you can’t beat good steak on the grill. I also love a good burger. So when my mom made this a few weeks ago for Sunday dinner, I knew it would land a place on my menu very soon. I am sure this marinade would be excellent with other proteins as well since many people (not me) try to limit their red meat intake.

So I am totally going to be a hypocrite on this post because I used terriyaki sauce in this marinade, which is loaded with sodium. I guess a little in moderation isn’t so bad for you. I promise you that it is totally worth it. The beef has a sweet and tangy flavor from the marinade which pairs perfectly with some red pepper, red onion, and fresh pineapple. You can use other veggies on here as well, but I thought those complimented the marinade the best. The meat was tender and extremely flavorful. These will definitely be one of our summer favorites.

(Printable Recipe)
For the marinade:
1 cup terriyaki
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 6 oz. can pineapple juice
6 cloves garlic
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. worchestire sauce
beef tenderloin or your favorite type of steak (how much depends on how many kabobs you want)

For the kabobs:
Cut the following into chunks:
red onion
red pepper

What you’ll do:
Combine all your marinade ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. Cut your choice of meat into chunks and drop into marinade. Cover & refrigerate for 1-4 hours. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high. Drain and discard marinade. On 12 metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the beef, pineapple, , peppers and onion. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness, turning occasionally.
