How to Make It

  1. Prep time: 10 minutes
    Marinating time: 30 minutes
    Cooking time: 25 minutes

    In a zip-close bag, toss meat with 1/4 cup dressing and refrigerate 30 minutes, shaking frequently.

    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with water, bring to a boil, and reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes, or until just tender.

    Heat grill or broiler. In a medium bowl, toss peppers, potatoes, and tomatoes with remaining dressing.

    Thread beef, peppers, tomatoes, and potatoes onto skewers. Cook 6 inches from heat source, turning occasionally, until kabobs reach desired doneness (12 to 15 minutes for medium). Serve warm, sliding food off skewers for kids.

    How kids can help: Count potatoes and tomatoes; toss meat with dressing in sealed bag; mix veggies in bowl.
