Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

One of my favorites things to use in the kitchen in a good marinade. A friend of ours introduced me to a good marinade a few months ago. I showcased here once, but I wanted to remind you of it again. It's REALLY good. I had some kabob meat in the freezer and a half a bottle of marinade, so I figured I'd combine the two. I added some onion and green and red peppers and we had a yummy meal. I don't have a grill so I had to use my grill pan on the stove top, but I can only imagine how yummy these would be on a REAL grill. If anyone tries that, would you let me know, please????

Steak and Veggie Kabobs

1/2 bottle Allegro marinade (found in the condiment aisle)
1 pound kabob meat ~ whatever steak type meat you like would work
1 red bell pepper ~ cut in large chunks
1 green bell pepper ~ cut in large chunks
1 onion ~ cut in large chunks
At this point you can add whatever veggies you like: mushrooms, zucchini, etc.

For every pound of meat you use, use HALF bottle of marinade.

Chunk the meat and place it in a zip-top baggie. Add marinade and allow to marinate for several hours.

Alternate veggies and meat until all skewers are filled to desired fullness.  I used 6 skewers.

Place your grill pan over medium heat. Add some olive oil to the pan and cook kabobs for about 7 minutes on each side.

Here's what I used....

Marinate your meat for a while.

If you're using wooden skewers, 
make sure you soak them for an hour or so...
so they don't burn on the grill.

Chunk your veggies.

Add the marinated meat 
and veggies to the skewers.

(I had to trim my wooden skewers to fit in my pan.) 
Then grill them! This marinade is SO good!! 
You gotta try it!!
