This Brown Sugar Beef Kabob Marinade is AMAZING! You need to try it!

Memorial Day has passed, and it is officially grilling season!  This year, Lauren and I are trying to eat much healthier, but I am unwilling to compromise on flavor.  So I set out to make an easy appetizer that you can eat and serve guilt-free.

Steak kabobs fit the bill perfectly!  Just because it's beef doesn't mean it can't be healthy.  Our local Price Chopper has a great selection of Certified Angus Steak in almost every cut.  For my steak kabobs, I chose a sirloin steak since it marinades very well, is inexpensive and also very lean.

For the marinade, there was no reason to leave my local #PriceChopperBBQ – their House of BBQ in-store solutions center is a great place to easily find items and ideas for all of your summer cooking needs.

This jaccard-type meat tenderizer comes in handy when you want your meat to be more tender and to marinade faster.

The main ingredient in my marinade is the Central Market Classics Neil’s Favorite Steak Sauce.

I also added brown sugar, garlic powder, Italian dressing and spicy brown mustard.  The brown sugar not only adds a hint of sweetness, is also helps the meat and vegetables caramelize as they are grilled over high heat.  The results were fantastic!  These will definitely be on the menu for our next summer cookout!

These steak kabobs are so flavorful and tender! Brown sugar in the marinade is one of the key ingredients, and helps the meat and vegetables caramelize while cooking.
