Ingredients
Marinade
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
Kabobs
  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak or sirloin tips, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound baby Yukon gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dijon or whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 8 ounces crimini mushrooms
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 onion layers each)
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together.  Reserve 1 tablespoon of the marinade.

  2. Place the cubed meat into a large plastic zip-tight bag and pour all but the reserved marinade over it, then seal and squish to coat well.  Place in the refrigerator for 1-6 hours to marinate.  This is also a good time to place wooden skewers in water to soak.

  3. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water until just tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 6-8 minutes. Drain well, then toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, rosemary, and mustard.  Set aside.

  4. Preheat grill to high heat while preparing the kabobs.  Chop all vegetables into chunks that are roughly the same size as the cubed steak, keeping 3 layers of onion together in each chunk.  Drizzle vegetables with the reserved 1 cup of marinade.

  5. Thread alternating pieces of meat, vegetables, and potatoes until the skewers are filled, aiming for 4-5 pieces of steak on each skewer.  

  6. Place kabobs on the grill directly over the heat and reduce heat to medium-high.  Grill for 8-10 minutes, flipping every 2-3 minutes, until the meat is cooked medium-rare to medium and the vegetables start to char just around the edges.  

  7. Remove from the grill and rest for 5 minutes before serving.
