Marinade for Kebabs for Chicken or Steak
Prep time
Total time
This tried and true recipe from my Grandpa always brings back wonderful memories. You can omit the brandy if you are marinating just tofu & vegetables. The marinade is in our family’s Croatian cookbook because Croatians do love their grapes & grape-based drinks! Whenever I make this recipe, I always think of all the times my entire family spent together because we’re always drinking some type of brandy or wine. Cooking with it, too, just makes so much sense. This marinade is an all-time favorite with all my guests!

    We love this marinade. Afterwards, we boil it and strain it and use it as a sauce. We ensure to boil the marinade for at least five minutes.
