I made these for dinner last night and they were outstanding! A great way to use a really lean and inexpensive BEEF cut and have a super tasty dinner on the grill. I prefer to grill the steaks without any veggies on the kabob because they never get done at the same time. I put my veggies on a separate skewer or in my grill basket. Last night I grilled zucchini (very abundant in the garden right now) in my grill basket and topped it off with some mozzarella cheese. Delish! I also made Mushroom Wild Rice in my crockpot using some morels I picked and dried this spring. Super easy and fast meal on a hot summer Sunday.
Honey-Dijon BEEF Steak Kabobs
2 lbs boneless beef round tip steak, cut in 1/2-inch thick strips
4 Tbsp water
4 Tbsp red wine vinegar
4 Tbsp coarse-grain Dijon-style mustard
4 Tbsp honey
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp coarse grind black pepper
Cut beef steak into 1/2-inch strips. Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Place beef and marinade in a food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
If using bamboo skewers soak in water 10 minutes; drain. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Alternately thread beef strips, evenly onto skewers. Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 6 to 10 minutes) – for medium rare (145 degrees) to medium (160 degrees) doneness – turning occasionally.
This delicious crockpot side dish recipe is perfect served alongside grilled steak.
