First let me say the orzo was really delicious. But the kabobs I am not sure what to say. Maybe there is a error from the changeover...because I just didn't think 1 TBS dressing for a whole pound of meat really wasn't very much. So I had poured a whole bunch more and some salt and pepper. I know the steak I used was pretty tough but that had nothing to do with the recipe..sometimes I buy steak and it is good and other times it is tough. From now on I am only going to buy fillet mignon and cut them into pieces. I just didn't find this kabob really had much flavor though....Was there something missing out of the recipe Manami? Because all your other recipes I have tried are absolutely delicious...
