Beef on the Grill This Summer.

Still a long way to go for summer, but anyway, I just thought of sharing this healthy diet which you can enjoy cooking it with your friends. Nutrient-rich lean beef is a complete recipe for better health, with lean protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Beef is leaner than ever an a natural source of essential nutrients that fuel healthy, active lifetyles. I'll just tell hubby we can do this together, LOL!

(With Roasted Red Pepper Dipping Sauce)

Total preparation and cooking time: 35 minutes

1 1/2 pounds boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1-inch thick

2 teaspoons coarse grind black pepper

3/4 teaspoon sweet paprika

2 cloves garlic, minced

Dipping Sauce:
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 jars (7 ounces each) roasted red peppers, rinsed, drained, finely chopped

1/2 cup dry white wine

2 tablespoons tomato paste

3/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme

1 cup ready-to-serve beef broth

2 teaspoons cornstarch

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion and 3 cloves of garlic; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender.
  2. Add red peppers, wine, tomato paste and thyme, stirring until tomato paste is blended. Combine broth and cornstarch in small bowl, mixing until smooth. Stir into pepper mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10-12 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.d
  3. Meanwhile, cut beef steak into 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 x 1-inch pieces. Combine pepper, salt, paprika and 1 minced garlic clove in large bowl. Add beef; toss to coat. Thread beef pieces evenly onto six 12-inch metal skewers, leaving small space between pieces.
  4. Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, about 7-9 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once. Serve with dipping sauce.
