Country Bob's Beefy Skewers

Awhile back, Country Bob's sent me a free sample of their Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce to try. We'd had it in the past and I knew dh really liked it. Somehow it just didn't seem to go with anything I'd planned to cook that week and the bottle got put in the cabinet and I'm ashamed to say that I forgot I had it.

Fast forward to a busy school night where I'm frantically scrounging for something to put on the table before it's time for the kids to be in bed. As I'm rummaging through the pantry, the bottle of Country Bob's miraculously reappears. Aha! Just what I needed to take our dinner to a whole new level.

For a quick meal, I marinated cubes of steak in a 1:1 mixture of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and Orange Marmalade and let it hang out in the fridge while I prepared the rest of the meal, helped with homework and signed planners. When we were ready to fix dinner, I alternated chunks of the beef, red bell pepper, red onion and nectarines on wooden skewers. The Beefy Skewers were delicious and even ds ate the steak off of his. (Still not too fond of the veggies but we've got to start somewhere!) The Country Bob's added a nice bit of zing in contrast to the sweetness of the fruit. And the grilled nectarines were delicious.

The people over at Country Bob's want you to have a chance to try their product as well. Check out the Country Bob's web page where you will find lots of great recipes as well as a place to request your own free sample of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce.

I got a couple of bottles, too. And I made two delicious pork dinners with them. I'll be posting them soon. Your recipe looks amazing. I wonder if it would work with chicken...

I got some too and this sounds good. Especially the nectarine part!
