Pineapple Beef Kabobs1 Comment

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.
