Are you ready for some football?

It’s TAILGATE TIME!

Our family loves football – from Friday night high school games to the pros on Sunday.  Fall weekends are filled with football.  And what is football without tailgating parties, right?  Whether you in the stadium lot or home watching on the big screen football is a great reason to gather friends and enjoy some delicious food.  Join me for a tailgate party!

The Quarterback Recipe – Beef Kabobs

Don’t fumble!  Make your tailgating food finger-friendly.  Beef kabobs are a great way to serve everyone’s favorites on a stick.  Your friends will enjoy munching on delicious beef and veggies without having to lift a fork.

Ingredients

Makes 12 kabobs

Walmart Beef Sirloin Cut – 2 pounds

Beef Marinade*

2 large green peppers

2 small yellow onions

12 button mushrooms

24 cherry tomatoes

Supplies:  Grill, Kingsford Charcoal, Skewers

Directions

Marinate your beef the night before, then assemble kabobs the morning of the game.  Be sure to soak your skewers in water for at least 10 minutes before putting together your kabobs, so when you put them on the grill they won’t burn.  Place kabobs on a hot grill and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning each minute.

Here’s the play-by-play preparation!

First Down – Shop.  Walmart is your one-stop shopping destination for all your tailgating needs.  For the beef kabobs, Walmart Premium Beef, USDA Choice, 100% Money-Back Guaranteed Sirloin is the perfect choice.

And don’t forget my husband’s favorite for many, many years, Kingsford Charcoal.  Kingsford Charcoal is dependable for the fast-lighting, even heat you need to create great-tasting barbecued food.

Second Down – Marinate.  The day before the game, marinate your beef.  *I used these marinade ingredients:  1 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1 cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, 3/4 cup lemon juice, 3 teaspoons garlic powder, 3 teaspoons black pepper.  Cut beef into 1-inch cubes, place in a ziploc bag.  Add marinade and shake.  Place in refrigerator for 4 – 24 hours.

Third Down – Assemble Kabobs.   Soak wood skewers for at least 10 minutes in cold water.  Tip:  Square skewers work best, the shape keeps items from twirling around the stick.  Wash tomatoes and mushrooms, cut onions and green peppers.  Alternate beef and vegetables on skewers.  Tip:  Place items very close together on the skewer, they will shrink as they cook.

Fourth Down – Grill Kabobs.  Place kabobs on a hot grill, with your side dishes.  Kabobs will cook fairly quickly, they only need four to five minutes.  It’s important to turn them about each minute to cook on all sides.

The Sidelines – Potatoes, Grilled Corn, Snacks, and Dessert

Once again, you want to have finger-friendly food.  Tailgating is all about socializing and experiencing the gameday excitement.  You will be walking and talking, there’s no sitting at tables in football!  I used clear, plastic cups to create individual servings of sides and snacks.  It’s easy to do and fun to eat.   Salad, veggies and dip, pretzels, chips and chex mix all fit perfectly into the cups.

Preparation is Separation!  In football, it’s the best prepared team that separates the winners from the losers and the same is true for tailgating.  You can pre-cook your corn and baked potatoes in the microwave and then just warm them up on the grill.  To create fun grilled corn, I sliced the cobs into snack-size pieces that could be easily placed on the grill.  Tip:  Try a serrated knife to cut through the cobs.  Mini-cupcakes and cake pops are perfect bite-sized desserts.

The WIN!

Add family and friends, then enjoy!  We invited over our new neighbors and had a tailgate feast.
