Yield: 8 -10 skewer
|1 pounds||Top round steak; cut into 1.5 inch chunks|
|1 medium||Spanish or vidalia onions; quartered and separated|
|3 tablespoons||Soy sauce|
|1 tablespoon||Dry sherry|
|1 tablespoon||Salad or olive oil|
|1 tablespoon||Chili sauce|
|¼ teaspoon||Ground ginger|
|1 medium||Straight-neck squash|
|1 medium||Red or green pepper|
|½ pounds||Medium mushrooms|
|½ pounds||Cherry tomatoes|
|¾ cup||Italian dressing|
1. In a medium sized bowl, mix the first 7 ingredients. Cover mixture and refrigerate at least 2 house, stirring occasionally.
2. About 1 hour before serving, prepare the grill for barbecuing.
3. Cut zucchini and yellow squash into 1 inch chunks. Cut pepper into 1 inch pieces. On long skewers, alternately thread zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms. (I usually use only one tomato and 1 mushroom per skewer to keep the weight down.) On separate skewers, alternately thread beef and onions. Save the marinade for later.
4. Place vegetable and meat skewers on grill over medium heat. If you have a 2-level grill, place the meat skewers on the lower level and the vegetable skewers on the top level.
Cook about 10 minutes, brushing the meat and onions with the reserved marinade and the vegetables with the Italian dressing. Turn skewers several times while brushing frequently.( A good way to tell that the vegetables are done is when the tomatoes start to split.) This is a great meal served with curried (or regular) rice and a fresh fruit salad.
