  • You can also place skewers over brown rice to add some healthy grains.
  • For an even healthier option, substitute beef with chicken.
  • Before adding the beef to your marinade, you can keep 1/4 cup of the sauce to baste your skewers after grilling.
  • Use aluminum foil to keep food moist and ensure it cooks evenly. It also makes cleaning up that much easier.
