I combine molasses, mustard and soy sauce to make these the most robust kabobs you've ever tasted. You'll never miss the oil in this hearty marinade. —Jennifer Schwerin of Rockford, Illinois


  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Freeze steak for 1-1/2 hours. Cut diagonally into 1/4-in. slices. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour 1/4 cup into another small bowl for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade into shallow dish; add beef. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Thread beef ribbon-style on 12 metal or soaked wooden skewers. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  3. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness(for medium, a thermometer should read 140°; medium-well 145°), basting frequently with reserved marinade.
