While I have tried many recipes on this site, I can honestly say this is the first one that made me want to post a review! It was super dee duper yummy! I added in wedges of sweet yellow onion, and baby bellas, tossed in EVOO and S&P. I didn't have any Kahlua on hand, so I subbed 1 tsp instant coffee mixed with 2 tbsp water. I think next time I will double the instant coffee, since Kahlua has such a strong coffee flavor. Also, I am a huge pork fan, so I think I will add more bacon. This was so yummy the DH and I went back for seconds!!!! Bravo Julesong! I look forward to trying many more of your recipes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a blender or food processor until smooth; reserve 1/2 cup of mixture for dipping sauce.
  2. Cut the meat into strips or cubes and place in remaining marinade, stirring to cover meat well, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Place bamboo skewers in water for 5 minutes, then skewer the meat on them.
  4. Cook kabobs on charcoal grill, basting with marinade, until the meat is tender, about 10 to 15 minutes for cubes, or 5 to 10 minutes for strips.
  5. Serve with the extra reserved sauce either hot or cold for dipping; serves 4-6 people.
  6. You can place cut vegetables between pieces of meat for grilling, too.
