Beef It's What's for Dinner

Just about every weekend we love to fire up the grill, invite some friends and family over, and enjoy some barbecue. My husband (and Dad) just finished building an awesome two-tiered pave-stone patio in our backyard and we have been anxious to have our first party on it. This past weekend we hosted a barbeque party to celebrate Labor Day, my son’s second birthday, and just have some fun.

We had about about 20 adults and 10 kids over for the day. Aside for eating and socializing, we played washers, took some of the kids on four-wheeler rides, and played games with the kids. I love all the laughter and chatter of a great get-together. It was a great time for everyone and of course the food was delish!

When it came to the food, we had a ton! When we grill, 90% of the time it is always beef. We knew we were going to grill beef franks and burgers, and for the third meat, I visited Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner and browsed their recipes. I love their website because not only does it provide great recipes, it is also very informative. Learn how to be a smart beef shopper, how to properly cook beef as well as healthy eating tips. After looking around, we decided to make beef kabobs adapted from their Beef Steak & Potato Kabobs recipe.

Beef Kabobs with Squash and Potatoes

Ingredients: (we doubled everything for our recipe)

  • 1lb boneless beef top sirloin steak
  • 1lb petite potatoes
  • 3 medium yellow or zucchini squash
  • marinade of your choice (we used Lawry’s Steak & Chop)
  • Olive Oil
  • Veggie Seasoning


1. Cut beef into 1 inch cubes
2. Cover steak with a marinade in a container. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
3. Microwave potatoes in a covered (vented) bowl for 8 minutes to until they are tender. This is important because they need to cook longer than the beef.
4. Slice squash into one inch slices. Toss with a coat of olive oil and veggie seasoning.
5. Alternate beef, squash, and potatoes in skewer
6. Grill kabobs on over medium, ash-covered coals covered for 8-10 minutes. On a gas grill, cover and cook for 9-11 minutes.  Turn once and brush some marinade on during the last five minutes.
7. Enjoy

Grilling beef properly is very important to ensure maximum flavor and optimal tenderness. Follow the steps below next time you grill beef.

    Oh yum! Thanks for the recipe. We {hubby} will have to try that one before the season is over :)

  • Amber Edwards

    Oh yum! I love grilling! We grill ALL the time, come Sun, rain, snow, sleet or hail! yes, we’ve grilled in it all before. We grill beef and chicken about the same amount, but we definitely do grill some beef quite often.

    I’m jealous! We don’t have a grill at home but we’ve been going to Home Depot to check out the grills there so we can buy one once we’re able to save up for it! But summer’s almost over so we’ll probably wait until next year. Looks like the food is really delish!
