Appetizers are always a hit at Big Game Parties. However, sometimes you want to serve some substantial food. I have a nice selection of Entrees that can be eaten with your hands in front of the TV. Everything from ribs to bacon chicken kabobs.
I am a sucker for sweet and spicy flavor profiles. So when we had a few chicken breasts lying around and a can of pineapple chunks, I knew that I had to make kabobs. To be honest, I have never been to Hawaii or even had traditional Hawaiian food. So the authenticity of this dish is not purely Hawaiian, but Hawaiian in style. These Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are a chicken kabob coated in a sweet and spicy sauce that takes you right to the beach.

The other night Dana wanted some steak. So I went to the store and discovered top sirloin steaks were on sale. They are a rather inexpensive steak, but they grill up beautifully. The sirloin is a cut from the rear of the animal. There is a bottom sirloin steak and a top sirloin. The top sirloin is the more tender steak as it wedged near the tenderloin. The bottom sirloin is much larger, but is a tougher cut of meat. Either way, both are rather inexpensive and grill up beautifully on a budget.
The other day I went to the store and they had sirloin steaks on sale. So I picked a few up. I wanted to try something new so I decided to make Asian Style Beef Kabobs. I wanted to do a skewer that was reminiscent of a Stir-fry. So I skewered broccoli, whole water chestnuts, peppers and onions. Then I created a nice marinade that was thick and could grab onto the meat and vegetables. This was a great meal. The meat and veggies came out perfect.
