    I did marinate the vegetables but I forgot to coat the skewer in oil. They did turn out really yummy! My husband and I loved them. Thanks for all your delicious recipes. So far your website has been the best for recipes. I love the meal plans especially. Everything is usually kid friendly, yummy, and doesn’t need a ton of weird ingredients.

      Glad it worked! Yes, I believe I usually marinate the veggies too unless I’m going to freeze the dish. We love hearing that our recipes are working for others, so thank you for the kind words. And yes, we shoot for kid-friendly, yummy, and easy b/c that’s how our life is right now. 😉

    Do I marinate the vegetables too?

    • Polly says

      It’s really up to you. I have never marinated the veggies with this recipe but do it all the time with our Garlic-Honey Chicken Kabobs

      (Only the peppers and onions though!)

    What’s the difference between the “ingredients” and the sauce”?

    • Amber says

      Nevermind. I’m a dork. The words Worcestershire sauce go together.😜

      • Polly says

        Haha! No prob.

    Trying this tonight! Sounds really good! I am using tenderloin steak for the kabobs. I can’t WAIT to taste them!

    • Polly says

      How did they turn out!? I haven’t used the recipe in a while and am hoping it is as yummy as I remember.

    1/4 of how much worcestershire sauce.

    • Polly says

      Cup. I’ll update the recipe to say that!
