Beef and Mushroom Kebabs – $5 Dinner Challenge

I made these the other night…I made an extra trip to the store to get the ingredients needed for this morning’s news segment…and spotted some $.99 whole mushrooms.  I see them often for $.99 in the mark down basket in the produce section. I found more this morning…sliced this time. I don’t typically buy extra food when I’m getting food for news segments, but I couldn’t pass these up!

(Gonna have to change the menu plan to incorporate some of the marked down goodies I found this morning!)

This is simple.

  • Stew beef.
  • Whole mushrooms.
  • Green peppers.
  • Steak seasoning.

That’s it!

Simple…but oh, so yummy!

    They look great, but is stew meat chew-able if it’s not stewed? I thought it would be too tough to grill.

    I’ve tried similar recipes before using stew meat on kabobs. Even when it’s *just* undercooked, it’s still really, really tough. I would wait till a better, more tender cut of meat is on sale to make these. But I have a sensitive jaw…so it might be fine for others.
