SALTED CARAMEL BUTTER BARS

INGREDIENTS

MARINADE

  • 6 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

BEEF KABOBS

  • 1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin tip, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cut into 1″ chunks
  • 1/4 red onion, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/4 – 1/2″ thick coins
  • extra cooking oil for preparing grill grates

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a9 x13 pan  with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, sugar, and powdered sugar. Add vanilla and beat until combined. Mix in the flour and combine until it forms a soft dough.
  • Press half of the dough in the bottom of a 9×13 dish and place the other half of the dough into the refrigerator. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and melt the caramels, heavy cream and ½ tsp vanilla in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir together until smooth. Pour evenly over the hot crust. Lightly sprinkle the coarse sea salt over the crust. I didn’t end up using the entire T, just lightly sprinkle evenly on top. You don’t want them too salty.
  • Take the remaining dough out of the refrigerator and crumble over the top of the caramel. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until filling is bubbly and the top is firm. Let them cool completely before cutting.
