Fantastic Grilled Beef Kabobs!
Just a tip, If you leave a little space between the meat and veggies, they will cook more quickly. If you are using wooden skewers, make certain to soak them in water before using them for grilling or they will burn, I personally prefer grilling with metal skewers. This recipe serves 3-4 people (two skewers each) but I would suggest to double the recipe if you are serving more than 4 people. Cooking time is only estimated… and prep time includes marinating time. The French dressing can be replaced with Russian dressing if desired.
1 lb boneless beef top sirloin steaks, cut into 1-1/2-inch squares (should have about 8-10 pieces)
1 (8 ounce) bottle French dressing
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2-3 cloves finely minced fresh garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
8-10 uncooked bacon, strips
1 large green bell pepper, cut into larger-size chunks
1 large red bell pepper, cut into larger-size chunks
2 small zucchini, cut into chunks
8 large fresh mushrooms
1 large onion, quartered
makes 3-4 servings
8 hours 15 minutes total (approx.) … 8 hrs prep ( includes marinating time)
In a bowl, combine salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, pepper and fresh minced garlic or garlic powder (if using) mix well to combine; reserve about 1/4 cup and refrigerate.
Using a shallow glass dish place in the beef cubes, and pour the remaining marinade over the beef; toss to coat.
Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight is even better.
After 8 hours, remove the beef, and discard the marinade.
Wrap the bacon slices around the beef cubes.
Then thread the beef alternately with the coarsley chopped veggies (make certain to thread the skewers through the wrapped bacon side, or the bacon will come open when grilled).
Grill over hot heat for about 10-15 minutes, basting frequently with reserved marinade, or until beef reaches desired tenderness.
