Grilled Steak Kabobs with Bell Peppers
Cooking a steak on the grill is a marvelous way to celebrate without expending too much of your own effort in the process.
In fact, deciding on the appropriate beef cut and the amount of meat to prepare may be the most challenging aspects of your menu.
You have a wide variety of cuts to choose from. Some can go right from wrapper to grill; other cuts should be marinated for better texture.
For tender, ready-to-grill beef, try rib, porterhouse, strip or rib eye steak. For steak with just as much flavor, but a little more resistance, opt for flank, skirt, eye of round or top sirloin and allow a few hours for marinating. Figure about 8 ounces of beef to serve two; more if you're buying bone-in meat.
Although it's tempting to opt for the no-labor tender cut, the tougher choices offer more recipe options. You can infuse beef with spicy, herbal or zesty marinade flavors. You can serve the meat whole or cut it into strips and thread it on skewers, which you might not want to do to an expensive prime steak. You can also pair the toothsome beef with colorful vegetables, taking the focus off the meat.
This grilled steak and bell pepper kabobs recipe calls for soaking eye of round steak in a blend of pungent and tart flavorings. Serve these grilled steak and bell pepper kabobs as a delicious and eye-catching entree.
