Lemonny Peppered Beef Kabobs

We were excited to be able to use our recently-purchased kabob skewers. This is what we came up with.

1 lb. beef steak (we used bottom round, or something like that)
1 8-oz. pkg. whole mushrooms
1 medium onion
1 cup baby carrots
1 to 1 1/2 large tomato(s)

Beefy Pepper Marinade (from George Foreman Grilling Machine Cookbook):
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. black pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely minced

Prepare marinade by mixing all marinade ingredients in a large bowl, being sure to completely dissolve honey; set aside. Prepare ingredients: Cut steak into 1- to 1 1/2-inch cubes; cut onion and tomato into large chunks; cut baby carrots in half widthwise. Add beef and mushrooms to marinade and stir gently to make sure they're all covered well. Marinate for about an hour. Thread all the meat and veggies onto skewers. Save the marinade to baste later.

Bake kabobs on roasting pan at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, then use the marinade to baste all the kabobs. Set oven to broil and cook an additional 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy. This made 8 large (10-12 inches?) kabobs.
