Grilled Beef Shish-Ka-Bobs



For a fresh summer dinner, go to the market and get veggies that look fresh and pretty, and any meat you choose. I found red peppers, vidalia onions, yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms and tomatoes. Cut them into smaller pieces and marinate them in a balsamic vinegar dressing for a couple of hours. This time I used sirloin steak, and I sliced and marinated it in the same dressing. Get the grill going!! Sort everything onto skewers (if you use wood skewers, soak them in water while you marinate the meat).



If you have a charcoal grill, let the coals get hot and then let them get a little past that. It cools them off just a tad and lets the meat and veggies cook more slowly together. If you have a gas grill, use medium-high heat. Put the skewers on the grill and close the cover. Let them cook for 8 minutes, lift lid and turn. Cook for 8 more minutes for medium. They're done- voila!



This couldn't be easier. You can use any meat and veggies you like which makes this extremely easy to tailor to your own family's taste. Have a few friends over, just a couple of sirloin steaks and the veggies you see pictured above easily made enough to feed six hungry adults.



Sangria goes perfectly with this dinner! Try it, you'll like it...and the eggs!
