Probably would've been 4 stars if I had marinated the meat all day.  I cooked these on our Traeger grill with a grill pan underneath (as I also grilled some asparagus).  Cook time was 20 minutes, turning half way through.  Probably could've done 16 minutes total; next time I will cut back a bit.  Good flavor and an easy meal to prepare.  Will make again.

This is a terrific weeknight recipe. Used half a flank steak (cooking for two) and left the five spice powder out. The meat was tender and flavorful - thanks to the marinade (which I will also use for chicken). With couscous and a green salad it made a satisfying supper.

Our family really enjoyed these kebabs. The marinade was exceptionally good. I may try it again, even for a dish without the kebabs. When the recipe said to turn the kebabs, I wasn't sure how many turns (2? 4?) and slightly overcooked the sirloin. Turn them twice and keep an eye on them and you'll have perfect results.

I agree with the others, these were delicious. The kebabs required no tweaking--whole family loved them. I served this with the suggested ginger noodles and some grilled zucchini. I also agree that the noodles were a little bland, so we added some additional soy sauce--might add something else next time. These made great leftovers as well, with the meat and peppers removed from the skewer and mixed in with the remaining noodles. Will make this again.

We all loved this dish, thought flavors were wonderful. My skewers didn't fit on the grill pan so I ended up cooking the individual pieces of meat and veg directly on the pan.

The kebabs were really tasty! Easy to prepare and cook. Next time I will add more veggies. I used buffalo sirloin. I also added more garlic instead of the 5-spice like they recommended. I will definitely be making these again. The ginger-rice noodles were bland but not terrible.

We loved the flavor of the marinade and agree that the meat should be cooked only until medium-rare. The ginger-rice noodles were bland, however, and I will tweak them a bit next time.

Really liked the 5-spice marinade. We prefer shorter-cooked beef & longer-cooked veg, so skewered them separately, adding some whole mushrooms and onion quarters to the bell pepper. Served with sautéed whole leaf spinach and the recommended ginger rice noodles. Very good summer meal, great colors & flavors.
