BEEF & VEGGIE KEBABS

PREP TIME 5 MINUTES
COOK TIME 15 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME 20 MINUTES

Ingredients for 5 kebabs

  • (cut into 1.5-inch chunks) 1 lb lean top sirloin,
  • Substitutes: jumbo shrimp, large bay scallops, extra firm tofu
  • (cut into chunks) 1 red bell pepper,
  • (cut into chunks) 1 yellow bell pepper,
  • (bottom removed then chopped in half) 15 thick asparagus spears,
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed/avocado oil
  • (see recipe below) 5 hearty tablespoons avocado chimichurri

Utensils

  • Himalayan salt block
  • 5 wooden skewers

STEPS

  1. At the same time, set oven to 300F and insert the salt block so that it heats up with the oven.
  2. Increase the temperature about 30-50 degrees every FIFTEEN minutes until you reach 450F – 500F of the oven. Until you’re ready to use, keep it in the oven.
  3. Using the skewers, assemble the kebabs. It is not necessary to soak them beforehand since these will not be cooked over fire. Pro-tip: Using a silicone bag (or on the stovetop), lightly steam asparagus in the microwave to soften.
  4. From the oven, remove the salt block and brush with oil. On the salt block, place the kebabs.
  5. Place a skillet or weighted plate on top of the kebabs for best results to help them get a good sear. About FIVE to EIGHT minutes, cook until your desired readiness, then flip to cook on the remaining side.
  6. With avocado chimichurri sauce, top each one.
