Asian Steak Skewers Recipe

Asian Steak Skewers Recipe

I'm always on the lookout for light meals that will satisfy my family, and these stuffed kabobs fit the bill. Served with a creamy mustard sauce, the colorful bundles are special enough for company. —Gina Hatchell of Mickleton, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + marinating Grill: 5 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef sirloin tip roast
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 medium carrots, julienned
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons prepared horseradish

Directions

  • 1. Cut beef widthwise into 16 slices, 1/4 in. thick. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, sugar and ginger; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 4 hours.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, bring water and carrots to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Add the beans and red pepper; cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain and immediately place vegetables in ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  • 3. Drain and discard marinade from beef. Arrange three beans, one carrot strip and one pepper strip down the center of each beef slice; roll up. For each kabob use metal or soaked wooden skewers and thread two bundles on two parallel skewers.
  • 4. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until beef reaches desired doneness.
  • 5. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, mustard and horseradish. Serve with kabobs. Yield: 4 servings.
