Brown Sugar Steak Kebabs

These Brown Sugar Marinated Steak Kebabs are great for any backyard BBQ. We make these a few times a month! Try to use a lean cut of meat and trim the fat, like a top round cut. This will reduce the calories significantly and because this steak is going to sit in a marinade for at least 3 hours and fully soak up all the flavors you aren’t going to notice the difference between this and a fattier cut of meat. The serving size is 1 kebab but we like to have two each coming in at 404 calories this is the perfect BBQ meal to stay on track.
