Two things contributed to the success of this meal:
First: $1 Pineapple (Supppa Sale!) I wanted to buy 10, but was able to convince the hubs that we would use 5, and guess what.... I cut up and used up 3 whole pineapples this evening! Perfectly ripe.. (Click here to see how to tell if a Pineapple is ripe yet.)
Second: (And no, I'm not being paid to endorse this) The Jack Daniels Honey Teriyaki Marinade in a Bag. Freaking delicious! I need to run out and buy another bag IMMEDIATELY!
First, I used about 2 lbs (should have used 4) Tri Tip steaks cut into about 1 1/2" chunks.
Throw in the marinade bag and let sit for a few hours.
At the same 'hour' you marinate the meat, you also want to put your wood skewers in water to soak. (So you don't catch them on fire.)
Cut the following into LARGE Pieces:
2 Green Peppers
1 Orange & 1 Yellow Pepper
1 large Red Onion
2 Cored Pineapples
20-30 Button Mushrooms (whole)
When ready to assemble, Take a skewer and (this is my 'best-efforts' conclusion for the order of placement)
put in the following order:
If you are magic enough to get more on the skewer, we definitely needed more meat and the mushrooms were really good too.
Hand off to your husband to grill.
*** Note: If you have OCD, assemble these by yourself.
