Ma's Beef Kabobs

My grandmother passed away 6 years ago, July 3rd.  I have found myself making some of her recipes recently.  A few days ago it was the banana pudding and today it is the beef kabobs.  As I was cooking the marinade, the aroma brought back memories of my childhood at my grandparents.

Beef Kabobs

1/4 cup dry onion soup mix
2Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup catchup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup veg. oil
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
1/4 tsp kosher salt
dash of hot pepper
1 1/2 lb sirloin

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients, except for the steak, and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  Cool completely.  Cut steak up into 1 inch cubes.  Add the meat to the cooled sauce and stir to coat meat.  Let this stand at room temperature for 3 hours or refrigerate overnight.

To prepare, drain the sauce from the meat and save.  Cut up any type of veggies you would like on the kabobs.  We sometime use pineapple, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, and onions.  Alternate meat in with the veggies.  Grill over medium coals for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once and brushing with the sauce two or three times.  Heat the remaining sauce and serve with the meat.  It is delicious!
