Kabobs & Cucumber Yogurt Salad

Very yummy dinner tonight, and super simple at that! The picture turned out like dog ass, but I thought I should post the recipe anyway… since I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Plus, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe.

 Kabobs

Ingredients: 

  • 8oz steak, cut into chunks (I got about 16 chunks)
  • 1 bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 onion, cut into large chunks
  • mushrooms (I didn’t have these, but I wish I did)
  • skewer sticks
  • lemon juice & salt

Method: 

Skewer the meat and veggies, alternating one after another, until you use up your ingredients (I got 4 kabobs and some extra veggies). Squeeze the lemon over the skewers and sprinkle with salt. Place the kabobs on top of a broiling rack, add the potatoes (see below), and broil on high for about 10 minutes or until the steak has cooked through and the veggies have browned. Generally, when the steak is finished, the other veggies are as well.

Broiled Potatoes

Ingredients: 

  • 1 large potato, chopped into 1-2″ chunks
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • onion salt
  • garlic salt
  • dried oregano
  • dried parsley

Method: 

Cut up the potato and throw it into the microwave, loosely covered, for about 2 minutes (or until the potato has softened). Remove from the microwave, put in a tupperware with other ingredients — Pop the lid on and shake it up. Dump the potatoes onto the broiling rack with the kabobs before broiling.

Cucumber Yogurt Salad

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • 2 tbsp chopped parley
  • 1/4 of a lemon juice

Method: 

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl 🙂 E.Z.

SERVE!

  1. Seriously jealous of your routine/work at home life. Every time you post a picture of that vast expansive landscape with all that fresh air it makes me want to put all my shit in a truck, sell the house and move!

    If you like cucumber salad, google the “Roni’s Cucumbers” from WellFed….very simple and delicious also!
