Marinated Beef Kabobs
A zesty marinade gives tongue-tingling flavor to this change-of-pace beef dish from Susie Freeman of Irons, Michigan.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Broil: 15 min.
- 1 small navel orange
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
- 8 large fresh mushrooms
- 8 medium green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons cold water
- 2 cups hot cooked rice
- Grate orange peel; remove remaining peel and pith. Separate orange into segments. In a bowl, combine grated peel, orange juice, teriyaki sauce, mustard, honey, garlic and pepper. Cut beef into 1-in. cubes; place in a resealable plastic bag. Add oranges, mushrooms, onions and half of marinade. Seal bag; refrigerate overnight. Refrigerate remaining marinade for sauce.
- Drain and discard marinade. On four metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread beef, oranges and vegetables. Broil 3 in. from the heat for 15-20 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness and vegetables are tender, turning often.
- In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir in reserved marinade. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Serve over kabobs and rice.
