It’s Memorial Day Weekend and a great time for grilling!  These easy steak kebabs pack a lot of protein and flavor.  Makes 8 servings (2 kebabs per person).

Ingredients:

Kebabs:

  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  ground cumin
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 3/4  teaspoons  salt
  • 2  pounds  boneless sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4  peaches, sliced into 8 wedges
  • 2  small red onions, sliced into 8 wedges
  • 2  large red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Cooking spray

Sauce:

  • 1/2  cup  chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4  cup  red wine vinegar
  • 1  teaspoon  olive oil
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon black pepper
  • 3  garlic cloves, minced
  • Parsley sprigs (optional)

Preparation:

Spray grill rack with cooking spray and turn on grill.

To prepare kebabs, combine first 7 ingredients; toss well. Thread 3 steak pieces, 2 peach wedges, 1 onion wedge, and 1 bell pepper piece alternately onto each of 16 (12-inch) skewers. Place kebabs on grill rack and grill 6 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Place kebabs on a platter; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 5 minutes.

To prepare sauce, combine chopped parsley and next 5 ingredients (chopped parsley through garlic), stirring with a whisk. Spoon over kebabs. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
