Canadian Beef Kabobs

DSC_0010 copy.jpg

The maple syrup and rye whiskey give this dish a Canadian twist. The two work really well together to form a wonderful caramelized edge to the beef.  Ask your butcher for some help in selecting a melt-in-your-mouth tender cut of beef. Don’t overcook this one! A few minutes on each side at most. The beef will dry out and toughen if it is overcooked.

My kids all woolfed this one down. Next time I’m going to double the recipe!
