Beef Kebabs

Have you fired up your grill yet?  If not, it is time!  Nothing says Spring like grilled food.  Here is another healthy and simple recipe for a nice Spring dinner.  Maybe out on the patio?  This one is so quick and easy you'll be relaxing with your margarita in no time.

Beef Kebabs, by 4 Pears
1 pound beef (tri tip, flank steak, etc... it could be anything really), cut into 2 inch pieces
3/4 cup olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon garam masala
2 large tomatoes, cut into large wedges
2 medium yellow onions, cut into large wedges
wooden skewers, soaked in water

Whisk 1/2 cup olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon juice and garam masala together in a small bowl then pour it into a zip lock bag large enough to hold your beef.  Toss in the beef and squeeze everything around to coat.  Put the bag in the refrigerator for at least an hour to marinate.  

Turn on the grill and while it is heating put the onions and tomatoes in a large bowl with the rest of the olive oil, toss them to coat and season them with salt and pepper.  Put them on the skewers.  I like to keep like with like so they cook evenly.

Put the beef on skewers as well.

Put everything on the grill and cook for about 4 minutes a side.  Your kebabs may cook faster or slower depending on how big your pieces are so just keep an eye on them.  Remove to plates and serve with Israeli couscous or another favorite side.  Enjoy!
