Beef Kabobs

doing em Saturday for a pretty nice event.
Want to impress, but minding costs.

Instead of a whole fillet (this is for 50 people)
what would you reccomend as a cut of beef.
I really want it to be tender and am thinking
about a whole fillet or a whole ribeye. The price
on the two could be about the same since the
ribeye is easier, and I might have a steak or two
left over for me.

Also serving about 50 chicken ka bobs, so I'm thinking
one beef and chicken per person. There are other foods
too.

Good, tender (which is what most of the general public thinks
is most important) and reasonable meat choices here?

Thanks.

Hey Cappy..you need to study up on some stuff called Speedies. Its yankee food but will testify they mighty good. My old pal Jody got the best recipe in town. He keeps it in his garage. I post you a link if I can find it. Here tis. Look under Favorite Recipes...State Fair Speidie. If you find somebody who dont like that sumthings wrong with em. CAB chuck roast works mighty fine for the beef version.

Cap'n

A locally owned meat market here sells beef kabobs. They are beef tenderloin chunks and are really good. I always suspect that they cut steaks out of the center and use the ends for kabobs. Least that's what I do when I buy a whole tenderloin. At any rate a tenderloin will make a kabob all will rave about. They have a teriyaki marinade that tastes great.

Cap'n If you are trying to save on the costs with the beef, try using top sirloin roasts. They are 1/2 to 2/3 the costs of whole ribeyes. I did some resently that came out great.
