Sheesh it's only Shish Kabob

Today we are having Beef Kabobs for dinner.  I was at the market the other day and they had lovely kabobs in the butcher case but at a not so lovely price.  It was like really?? For a little bit of meat and a few veggies? Come on!!!

But they did look delicious so I put them on the menu for this week but, in the interest of saving money and knowing how my meat was raised, I made my own.


I pulled 2 sirloin steaks from the freezer last and cut them into chunks this morning.


Grabbed stuff from my fridge and pantry to make a marinade.


I put it all into a zip closed bag and put it in the refrigerator to marinate during the day.


When it was time for dinner I skewered the beef along with the vegetables to make the kebobs.


Grill over med high heat for 7-10 minutes on each side until veggies are tender and beef is to your desired temperature.

These are much less expensive than store bought Kebabs and I am happy to share them on Thrifty Thursday.
