Save money by making beef kebabs with boneless sirloin instead of beef tenderloin. You can whip up the orange sauce with on-hand ingredients such as orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, and mustard.
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 pounds boneless sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
8 mushrooms, halved
1 red onion, quartered, layers separated
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper
How to Make It
Preheat broiler or prepare a charcoal fire and let burn to a gray ash. Stir orange juice concentrate with soy sauce, mustard and butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until smooth, 2 minutes.
Thread beef onto 8 long metal skewers, dividing evenly and alternating with mushrooms, onion pieces and cherry tomatoes. Brush orange mixture evenly over threaded skewers and season with salt and pepper. Bring any remaining glaze to a boil in saucepan, then remove from heat and reserve.
Set broiling pan or grill about 6 inches from heat source. Broil or grill skewers for 6 to 8 minutes, turning often, until meat and mushrooms are browned and onions are just charred on edges. Serve kebabs warm with remaining glaze on the side.
