Grainy Mustard & Thyme Beef Kebabs

Getting ready for grill.

Mmmm grilled to perfection!

With the nice weather lately, I have been indulging in BBQ frequently. Last night I could not decide between lamb or steak kebabs. In the end the steak looked more appealing. I found a yummy sounding marinade for the beef at Martha Stewart's website. It called for two of my favorite flavors grainy mustard and fresh thyme. The beef was marinated for about 3-4 hours making it extremely tender and flavorful. I wanted the kebabs to have a nice colorful presentation and therefore choose bright colored vegetables like yellow pepper, red grape tomatoes, and green zuchinni. This is nice served over a bed of couscous or with a side of mixed greens.

1 pounds top sirloin steak
grape tomatoes
yellow bell pepper.
2 T olive oil
2 T grainy mustard
1 T red-wine vinegar
1 T fresh thyme leaves
salt and ground pepper

Slice the steak into 1" or larger cubes.

In a small bowl, whisk together oil, mustard, vinegar, and thyme. Pour marinade over the beef (and vegetables if desired, however I prefer just the beef marinated). Let marinade in the fridge for at leat 2 hours in the refrigerator, turning periodically.

Assemble the skewers about 4 long ones, alternating beef with vegetables (4-5 beef per skewer is what I like).

Heat grill to high and place the skewers on a greased grill. Grill 1-2 mins per side for medium rare. Serve with side of salad or on a bed of couscous.
