Eat Skinny, Be Skinny: Kabobs

Summer is finally upon us, which means cool drinks, hot temperatures and bar-b-ques!  However, these summertime soirees can be serious diet busters if you aren’t careful! Instead of worrying about your calorie intake when you are supposed to be having fun with friends and family, grill up a dish that is not only delicious, but super healthy! Elliot and I made these kabobs recently and they were so good, we are doing them again tonight! You can switch up your proteins if you are not a beef person, chicken, pork and even fish work just as great!

Skinny Beef Kabobs

1/4 c. reduced sodium steak sauce
1/4 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1 t. dry mustard powder
2 dashes of italian seasoning
8 Portobello mushrooms, cut in fourths
8 oz 98% fat-free stew beef
3-4 green red bell pepper
2 onions, trimmed, cut crossways

Mix steak sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, mustard powder and italian seasoning. Add the beef cubes to mixture. Mix and saturate the beef in the sauce. Marinate for 1 hour.

Soak 8 skewers in water. Pre-heat grill.

On each skewer alternate protein with vegetable, or add more protein or vegetables to your taste. Grill until beef is tender, but not too pink.
