Want to know what my kids favorite home cooked meal is?  This is it.  Shish Kabobs.  They only like them with this marinade.  It is absolutely DELICIOUS!

Family Fun Shish Kabobs -

I found this recipe like 12 years or so ago when Logan was a baby and I had a subscription to Family Fun magazine.  I was going to link you up to the original recipe on their web site, but I couldn’t find it anywhere.  I promise you that this one is worth printing and making right away!

Family Fun Shish Kabobs
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  1. Prepare the marinade. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the garlic, ginger, soyr sauce, olive oil, sugar, pineapple juice and black pepper.
  2. To make kabobs, score the beef cubes by piercing each side several times with a sharp knife (this allows the marinade to penetrate the meat better). Add the beef and/or chicken to the bowl of marinade and stir to coat well.
  3. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 8 hours), turning occasionally.
  4. When you are ready to grill, skewer the meat, then barbeque the kabobs over medium heat for 4 to 7 minutes per side (medium). Remove the skewers and serve.


*I apologize about the less than stellar images that I get on some of these “main dish” posts.  I usually have vultures circling me waiting to eat while I am trying to take a few quick pictures for the blog. Winking smile
