Caesar Beef Kebabs are a hearty combination of meat and potatoes lined up on skewers but not adding up to high fat content -- only about 10 grams per serving.
The non-creamy Caesar dressing give a pleasant finish to the dish and the grill does its usual magic to bring out flavor and aroma. The potatoes are microwaved briefly before skewering to make sure they cook through.
If you wish, add side dishes such as couscous, a green salad or fresh grilled corn-on-the-cob. Fresh berries would make a lovely dessert and keep to the low-fat theme.
Caesar Beef Kebabs
Total preparation and cooking time:
4 small new potatoes (about 1/2 pound), cut into quarters
1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup prepared non-creamy Caesar dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
Place potatoes in an 8- by 8-inch microwave-safe dish; cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on high 4 to 7 minutes or until potatoes are just tender, stirring once. Cool slightly.
Cut beef steak into 1 1/4-inch pieces. Combine beef, potatoes, bell pepper and onion in large bowl. Drizzle with all but 2 tablespoons of the dressing; toss to coat. Thread beef and vegetables, alternating items, onto eight 9-inch metal skewers.
Place kebabs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, about 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Drizzle kebabs with remaining 2 tablespoons dressing before serving.
Makes 4 serving.
