My family *loves* these kabobs, plan ahead the beef needs to marinate 8 hours or overnight is even better, if you are using wooden skewers make certain to soak them in cold water for a minimum of 30 minutes before using them for grilling or they will burn, this recipe serves 3-4 people (two skewers each) but I would suggest to double the recipe if you are serving more than 4 people --- cooking time is only estimated and prep time includes marinating time. The French dressing can be replaced with Russian dressing if desired, you will love these! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, pepper and fresh minced garlic or garlic powder (if using) mix well to combine; reserve about 1/4 cup and refrigerate.
  2. Using a shallow glass dish place in the beef cubes, and pour the remaining marinade over the beef; toss to coat.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight is even better.
  4. After 8 hours, remove the beef, and discard the marinade.
  5. Wrap the bacon slices around the beef cubes.
  6. Then thread the beef alternately with the coarsely chopped veggies (make certain to thread the skewers through the wrapped bacon side, or the bacon will come open when grilled).
  7. Grill over hot heat for about 10-15 minutes, basting frequently with reserved marinade, or until beef reaches desired tenderness.

This had a really great flavor but my kabobs were chewy!!! VERY CHEWY!!! Of course that had to be me so I am not giving less than 5 stars on here. The flavor WAS 5 star worthy but if anyone knows how to get those kabobs more tender please let me know. A cut of meat I should use maybe......

These were really, really good! Even the kids (5 and 7) ate them! They were simple to make and tasted great! I would say to allow a little space around the bacon wrapped meat so that it will get a little crispy all the way around. A definate hit that we'll be sure to repeat in our house! Thanks KITTENCAL for another great recipe!
