Mediterranean Beef Kabobs
Lemon and garlic shine in this Mediterranean-style marinade that's just right for tender cubes of beef.
1 1/2 pound boneless beef sirloin steak
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried tarragon, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1 1/2-inch cubes. Place meat cubes in a self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
- For marinade, in a small bowl, combine green onion, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, tarragon, oregano, and pepper. Pour over meat; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain meat, discarding marinade.
- Thread meat cubes onto six 12-inch metal skewers, leaving 1/4-inch between pieces. Place kabobs on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5-inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in the center, turning occasionally to brown evenly.
