classic beef, sweet peppers and mushroom kabobs

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef Top Sirloin Boneless or Tenderloin Steaks, cut 1 inch thick
  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 2 medium red, yellow or green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • salt
  • SEASONING
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • CUCUMBER-YOGURT SAUCE
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped seeded cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoons salt

Directions

  1. Cut beef steak into 1-1/4-inch pieces. Combine seasoning ingredients in large bowl. Add beef, mushrooms and bell pepper pieces; toss to coat.
  2. Alternately thread beef and vegetable pieces evenly onto eight 12-inch metal skewers, leaving small spaces between pieces.

    Cook's Tip: Eight 12-inch bamboo skewers may be substituted for metal skewers. Soak bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes before using; drain.

  3. Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill kabobs, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 9 to 11 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once. Season kabobs with salt, as desired.

    Cook's Tip: To broil, place kabobs on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 9 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once.

  4. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in small bowl. Serve with kabobs.
