Steak and Shrimp Kabobs

Ingredients

  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pound whole fresh mushrooms
  • 2 large green peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, halved and quartered
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the beef, shrimp, mushrooms, green peppers, onions and tomatoes; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and reserved marinade until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
  3. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place kabobs over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 6 minutes, turning once. Baste with sauce. Continue turning and basting for 8-10 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and beef reaches desired doneness. Yield: 6-8 servings.
