Steak Kabobs #BloggerCLUE

Summer is in full swing, despite the monsoon season that has hit the Midwest. Between our annual 4th of July cookout and our family Sunday suppers, there’s always room for terrific grilled entrees, like these marvelous steak kabobs.Tender Steak Kabobs with a simple, flavor packed marinade

Time for a Summer Barbecue

This month’s Blogger CLUE theme is Grilling and Summer Barbecue. I was assigned the blog of my friend, Wendy. She is one busy lady as she and her husband live on a large acreage, raise chickens and other farm animals and try to be as self sustainable as possible. As I perused A Day in the Life on a Farm, my first inclination was to make her gorgeous Strawberry Cake Roll. But I was already planning to make my grasshopper pie and carrot cake for the 4th of July and I couldn’t justify another dessert, though I tried hard to rationalize a need for 3 sweets! I ended up making her marinated Steak Kabobs, but also worked in her wonderful Strawberry Spinach Salad, which reminded me of my mom’s version with a sweet dressing and sesame seeds.

A Couple Twists

For her steak kabobs, Wendy used Gourmet Garden’s herbs and garlic. I am a huge fan of their products. Since I didn’t have those on hand, I used her substitutions and grilled up some mighty tasty kabobs! Tender and flavorful, no knife was needed. I included large pieces of red bell pepper as well as the mushrooms, onions and beef on my skewers. Perfectly scrumptious results. Spinach Strawberry Salad | summer salad with spinach, berries, blue cheese and almonds Earlier in the week, I whipped up Wendy’s Strawberry Spinach Salad and added some slivered almonds and blue cheese to the recipe. I wanted to eat the leftovers for lunch so some protein was essential. But certainly feel free to leave out those ingredients or add some chicken or your favorite nut if desired. I think I’ll leave out the poppy seeds next time, but that’s just a personal preference. This is another winning recipe however you tweak it! Thanks so much, Wendy!
