Steak and Potato Kebabs

steak and potato kebabs

Did someone say KEBABS? Oh, heck yes…I did! I Looove kebabs. They are so convenient for me because I can just get everything all cut up and put into containers and in the fridge ahead of time. Then, when it’s time, I usually put out all the containers with the different ingredients, along with skewers (if you’re using wooden skewers make sure you soak them in water first so they don’t catch fire on the grill) out for everyone to choose what they’d like on theirs. I like to  add more to mine ( like broccoli and cauliflower. If you like to add tomatoes, which I do, make sure you add them only for the last minute or two or they’ll get shriveled or burnt!), but feel free to do with yours what you wish!

Ingredients

1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves, minced
2 tablespoons red-wine or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 tsp. garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
8 new or baby red potatoes
1 1/4 pounds strip steak, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large sweet onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

Directions

Combine cilantro, vinegar, sour cream, garlic, chile powder, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Set aside.  Preheat grill to high.
Place potatoes in a microwave-safe container. Cover and microwave on High until just tender when pierced with a fork about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes.
Toss the potatoes, steak and pepper pieces with oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Thread the potatoes, steak, peppers and onion chunks onto 8 skewers. Grill, turning once or twice, until the steak reaches desired doneness (about 6 minutes for medium). Serve kebabs with the reserved sauce.
