Steak and Vegetable Kabobs

These are delicious with fresh sweet corn and a baked potato. You can spend the day out of the kitchen by assembling the kabobs in the morning, then letting them marinate all day before grilling at dinnertime. —Lorri Cleveland, Kingsville, Ohio

    These kabobs were very tasty and looked beautiful as well. Will definitely be making these again.

    As someone who enjoys cooking, I have virtually all the ingredients on hand for this recipe, most of the time and wouldn't consider it an imposition to get a few things I may be out of. cqdave's comments should be taken with a grain of salt (although that may be "too much stuff") - I have lots of recipes with way more stuff! If you don't have a grill you could do these under the broiler in the oven - keeping in mind that if you want the beef well done and not burnt, don't have your broiling tray too close to the element. If you like rare then have it closer. I would make sure the broiler is preheated before putting the pan of kabobs under it then make sure you turn them every couple of minutes - again depends on how well done you want them. You could try roasting them if you don't have a broiler. I'd try them at fairly high heat - like 450 degrees - so you're searing the meat. Again, timing depends on how well done you want them - 5 to 10 minutes would probably work - but it will depend on the size of your meat chuncks. Have a piece of meat on the end of one of the skewers and pull it off and cut it open to see if its done to your taste - then give it more time if you think its necessary. Hope this helps jslvsclf. Don't be afraid to try. Worst case scenario, just put what would go on a skewer in a wok or frying pan and cook on medium high till you think its done.

    I was on a budget so I used a buffalo sirloin roast I had, it turned out great!I used my electric flat top skillet, since I don't have a grill. It worked pretty good.

    You can buy a grill pan that can be used on your stove top to make these kabobs.

    This sounds really good. Since I don't have a grill, can I use the oven somehow?
