Sirloin Skewers

Another great way to serve beef is on a skewer. These skewers taste great accompanied by Sweet Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes or Chunky Tomato Spelt.

Instructions

Carefully slide ingredients onto the skewer using lots of beef.
(In sequence this might look like: beef-cherry tomato-beef
-zucchini-beef-red onion-beef). Repeat until the beef is used
up. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, lightly coat
with cooking spray and place the skewers into the pan. Sauté
until lightly browned on all sides, season to taste with salt and
pepper, and pair with a side. Serves 1 large or 2 small.
