Filipino BBQ Skewers

I often make fun of my husband’s love of stuffed meat – he always seems to gravitate to those recipes – but I think I’m about ready to admit to my own little obsession with meat on sticks.

I’m really loving kabobs and skewers this year. They make such a fun summer dinner.

The marinade from these skewers give them a nice sweetness – with a little kick, thanks to the red pepper flakes. They’re one of my favorites!

Filipino BBQ Skewers
(from Gina’s Skinny Taste)

2 lb london broil, sliced long, 1/4″ thick, 2″ wide
1/2 can lemon-lime soda
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. white vinegar
1 lemon, juice of
1/2 c. brown sugar
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 t. black pepper
Crushed red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl and marinate the meat overnight.

If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least a half hour so they don’t burn on the grill.

Thread the meat onto skewers and grill. Discard unused marinade.
