While I was waiting for my dinner to cook last night I whipped up a marinade and cut up some sirloin steak. My mom has made a wonderful marinade for years, so I took what I remembered from hers and combined it with a recipe I came across in Bon Appetit. Here it is:
Thinly sliced onion (technically about 6 scallions, but I only had a sweet white onion)
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. (packed) brown sugar
1 tsp hot pepper sauce (I used some tobasco)
I did not add anymore salt because soy sauce is pretty salty. I combined the ingredients in a gallon ziploc bag with bit size pieces of sirloin steak.
When we got home tonight after work, Stephen fired up our grill and I chopped some red and yellow peppers. Then we assembled our kebabs with the meat, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and pearl onions. One piece of advice: soak your pearl onions in water so they don't instantly flame once they are on the grill.
Here they are cooking:
