Steak, Pineapple & Pepper Kebabs

Kebabs make for a fantastical summer meal for Paleo-peeps. And they’re uber-budget friendly in the summer too because produce is so cheap.

I’ve already started to see the $.50 per bell pepper prices at my store. Have you yet?

So…you can/should make these with your favorite cut of steak, cut into kebab-size pieces. Or, if you’re like me, you could go with a cheaper cut of beef like ‘beef for stew.’

I generally use stew beef when making kebabs for a few reasons: it’s already cut to the right size, it cooks really well on a metal skewer, and it’s almost always (I can probably say always here!) cheaper per pound than the different cuts of steak sold in stores.

Totally up to you, which type of beef you use. 🙂

String on some peppers, red onions and pineapple and you’ve got the makings of a delicious kebab. The tangy balsamic vinaigrette marinade is the perfect complement to the grilled, sweet pineapple and peppers.

And Happy Memorial Day!

I want to pause for a moment to say thanks. Thank you to those who given the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. As we celebrate our liberty and freedoms, we remember and support those who have lost their lives in defense of our liberties and freedom. I’m deeply grateful for your sacrifice and service.
