Family Favorite Kabobs

These hearty, meat-and-potato skewers have a little something to please everyone, from pineapple to pork. I cook these kabobs even in winter; I just shovel a path to the grill. —Dione Steffens, Dimmitt, Texas

    I had a hard time with this recipe and probably will not make again. In my attempt to make sure that the pork was cooked thoroughly I ended up overcooking both the veggies and the pork. It was salvageable but disappointing. ??????

    These were so fun and really good! I had more veggies than I had kabob sticks, so we grilled them up in a grill basket and ate as a side dish to supper the next night - it was really good!

    Tenderizes the meat really well - the flavor of the marinade is good, but definitely needs a bit more flavor.

    This recipe is yummy, wonderful flavor & I will make it again for sure. I liked the idea of using pork.

    I halved this and made it for just myself and my husband AND then a couple weeks later, made it when my parents came to visit. It was a hit both times! I love the versatility of the recipe-- you can use other meat, and you don't have to use all the ingredients for the skewers if you don't want to. This makes a lot, but the leftovers are great as well!

    I loved these kabobs. We used steak and various garden veggies we had on hand. Served with brown rice. Very good!

    This is a fabulous recipe! And it makes a lot! We made it without the corn (cooked it separately) and without the green peppers (I prefer red peppers). We will definitely make it again this summer.
