Steak and Veggie Skewers
I got a pack of chuck steak that had been cut already (for stews and such). I pulled out the best cut pieces and placed them in a storage bag. I then added about 1/2 cup of Original Doomer's "Q" Sauce, tossed it a bit to coat the meat and then set it in the fridge to marinate.
While the meat was marinating, I grabbed some veggies. I used a yellow onion, a few white potatoes, a red bell pepper and a couple pieces of pineapple.
Wash and dry the potatoes and cut them into quarters. You can prep these well ahead of time. I put some water into a pot and brought it to a boil. I added the potatoes and let them cook about ten minutes. Once they began to soften, I drained them, set them aside to let them cool.
Meanwhile I cut the other veggies up. I used about 1/2 the onion and cut it into quarters. The pepper I cut into a few chunks.
The wife won't eat the peppers or onions, so I didn't need as many. Also, the pineapple was canned and small pieces, so I used them sparingly. I would recommend you get a whole pineapple and cut it into 1 1/2 inch pieces.
Once the grill was up to temperature I threw the skewers, potatoes and extra pieces of meat on to cook. Next I wen inside to begin on the sides. I prepared some rice, carrots and a little cous cous. I used a garlic & olive oil cous cous and added a little tomato and small diced red pepper (using the cap).
Once everything was done, I removed the skewers and such from the grill and brought them inside for plating. I put down a some rice and cous cous, removed everything from the skewer and placed it on the plate. Add to that a side of carrots and you've got yourself a wonderful meal.
I thoroughly enjoyed making these and enjoyed eating them even more. If you get the chance, I recommend you try them out. Use whatever veggies you like best. I've got some more beef coming soon...I'm really thinking about some nice roast beef. Stay tuned and remember...Just "Q" it.
