Balsamic Steak Skewers ~ Tender Steak Marinated in a Tangy Balsamic Vinaigrette and Grilled to Perfection!

click-for-recipe-julie2

Man food. This is a prime example. Big, juicy, tender pieces of steak marinated in a tangy balsamic vinaigrette and grilled to perfection. Life does not get much better. Well, my hubs would give me all the cherry tomatoes and go on with his meal. I don’t mind one bit. Not one.

I’m not going to lie. I bribe my hubs with food. If I want him to do something big I prepare one of his favorite meals and then gaze adoringly into his eyes and beg. Beg. Beg. Usually it works. This recipe is totally a bribe food for all of you women out there there also use this tactic. Do not hang your head in shame. We do what we got to do….

This past weekend I attended a blogging conference called BlogHer Food, which required me to leave after work on Wednesday and not come back until late Sunday night. I prepare one meal for the hubs to make and made sure there was clean clothes. Then I ran. Ran like the wind. I might have said good luck as I dashed out the door. You know what? Not once did he complain about me leaving. I’m seriously blessed when it comes to that. He digs in and helps out and lets me do my thing a lot of the time. Of course there are the times he might give me some crap if I’m gone a little more than usually but he’s a total hands on Dad.

Sure I do wish he did the laundry, or the dishes or made me supper. If he cleaned the bathrooms that would be excellent too. Now I’m depressed. I guess I don’t mow the lawn, or move snow, or take out the garbage. We are so old fashioned in those areas most of the time!

You know what? He survived. The house was standing when I came home and it was mostly clean. Sure the deep cleaning didn’t get done and the good clothes didn’t get washed and there may have, just may have been laundry baskets waiting to be folded and put away on the living room floor. Miss K was alive and happy. I mean she’s a total Daddy’s girl to begin with so she’s probably hoping Mom leaves again cause let’s get real. Dad’s the fun one.

Miss K was indulged in a few more trips to the fast food restaurants and I may have received a picture at one point of chocolate smeared across her face from Daddy indulging her in a bag of M&Ms but she sure was smiling!

So thank you hubs for digging in and taking over when I was gone. I love you dearly. I’m blessed to have you and I hope you know it.

If you are lucky I might just thank you with a plate of these amazing Balsamic Steak Skewers, which I know will put a smile on your face followed up by a big bowl of homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream. Because I Love You.

If you want to gag now at this lovely dovey post I don’t really blame you. I promise next I’ll be back to my snarky self. I blame it on the pregnancy hormones!

    Yep, these skewers are definitely grilled to perfection! Balsamic vinegar or vinaigrette is one of my favorite things in the world – it’s a serious obsession.
    Also, I loved reading your post. Definitely not too mushy :). So glad you had a great time at the BlogHer conference!

    How long do you marinate? Look yummy!

    • Julie Evink


      You only need to marinade for about 30 minutes!

  • Kristy


    Balsamic vinegar or vinaigrette? What’s the difference please?

    • Julie Evink


      I used balsamic vinegar for this recipe!

  • Lauren


    What do you suggest serving as a side with this?

    • Julie Evink


      I think a lettuce salad or potatoes would be great with it!

  • Josie


    I might be missing something here . . . 1/4 c BBQ + 1/4 c balsamic = 1/2 cup, but then it says to reserve 1/2 cup. Should it be reserve 1/4 cup for basting? Thanks!

  • plasterers bristol


    This looks delicious, thanks for sharing.
