Shish Kabobs with Red Wine Rosemary Marinade

Summer is for grilling and chilling!

As for the grilling, let me suggest shish kabobs. This meal touched the heart of my Chief Grilling Officer (a.k.a. my hubby) who has been presented with far too many zucchini dishes lately. The fragrant red wine and rosemary marinade perfectly tenderized the sirloin steak fillets. The meat is alternated with his favorite vegetables.  He gave this two thumbs up.

It’s a meal on a stick, which I love! Just a add a salad or some rice and dinner is done.

Red Wine Rosemary Marinade…

The marinade makes this meal memorable. The key ingredients are a dry, fruity red wine, such as Gallo Family Vineyards Merlot, lots of garlic and rosemary. (This may or may not be inspired by the fact that the only fresh herb that grows with any predictability at my house is rosemary!) When you mix up the ingredients, you’re engulfed by the rich, fragrant smell of the wine in this marinade…you just know that the beef is going to taste fabulous!

Alternate beef cubes with your favorite veges. (Next time I’ll be adding mushrooms and zucchini to the line-up.) Make sure to soak wooden skewers for about 30 minutes before using them.

It takes about 3-4 minutes per side for a slightly pink meat. So, you can move on to…

I’m partial to a glass of this Sweet White Blend. 🙂
