The Best Marinade for Kabobs! (Beef, Pork and Lamb)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I have a few favorite marinades that I have used for years this is one of them, this marinade will tenderize and add flavor to any cut of meat to absolute perfection and makes fantastic kabobs! This can also be used for chicken but because of the vinegar amount marinading time will need to be reduced to a maximum of 6 hours or the acid vinegar will start to "cook" the chicken, use only honey no other substitutions!.. you will love this marinade!

Outstanding! I marinated button mushrooms, green and yellow zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and a Vidalia onion for 7 hours then grilled as kabobs. They tasted amazing. The Vidalia onions tasted like candy. I also marinated a 1lb top sirloin steak for 7 hours and grilled it to rare and it was also amazing. This is the best marinade I've ever tasted. Kittencal continues to amaze me. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
