Marinade for Shish-Kabobs

We love to grill and shish-kabobs are another favorite, especially when we're at the lake. To make it super easy, you can usually buy them already prepared and seasoned from the butcher at your supermarket. To me, the fresher the better, so I assemble my own using both cubed chicken breast and New York strip steaks. For the vegetables I use, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, red onion and mushrooms.  Keep in mind the chicken will take longer to grill. If using wood skewers, soak the skewers in some water prior to use, so they don't catch on fire while on the grill. We like to serve our kabobs with couscous and pita bread.

Check out the short video clip of David playing his guitar at the lake. It's following the recipe. What a cuteness is he! =)

Marinade for Shish-Kabobs

1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup chili sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp prepared mustard
Pita bread

Saute onion in oil until soft. In a sauce pan add the remaining ingredients. Simmer for 30 minutes. Cool. Pour 1/2 of sauce mixture over meat cubes in a bowl. Cover and marinate in fridge for at least 1 hour. Better if marinated overnight. Fix kabobs alternating meat with desired vegetables on skewer. Grill; brush frequently with sauce. Serve with pita bread.
