Succulent Beef Skewers for 2 Recipe

Succulent Beef Skewers for 2 Recipe

Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least two hours or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or dash dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients; add beef. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Thread beef onto two metal or soaked wooden skewers. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-10 minutes or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium, a meat thermometer should read 165°; well-done 180°), turning occasionally. Yield: 2 servings.
