Angus Beef Kabobs for Kids

Thank you to Colorado Boxed Beef for making these High River Angus Beef Kabobs for kids possible. As always my comments, opinions, and love for kabobs are my own.

We like to make these kabobs with the kids in mind. First, we use High River Certified Angus Beef top sirloin steak, which makes for a juicier, more tender, and exceptionally flavorful kabob without requiring lots of spices.

Next, in place of cutting thick cubes of beef, we use thinner strips, making it easier for the kids to eat them. Lastly, we finish with the kids’ favorite grilled veggies including two colors of bell pepper, red onion, a sweet cherry tomato, and a mini potato to cap the top!

The kids love them, of course, but we parents love them, too!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Start to finish: 50 minutes (counting the time getting the coals ready)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound High River Angus top sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12-15 baby potatoes,
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, washed and seeded
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, washed and seeded
  • 1/2 red onion12-15 cherry tomatoes
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

You will also need

  • 12-15 wood skewers
  • Gas or charcoal grill, or a stovetop grill
  • A big tray

Process

Slice the meat into thin strips. Mix garlic salt and pepper. Season meat on both sides. Set aside.

Soak wooden skewers for at least 20 minutes to help avoid catching fire while grilling the meat.

If you are using a charcoal grill, this is the time to light the briquets in order for them to be hot and ready at the moment you want to grill the meat. You will know they are ready when they change from black to silver-white.

Cook baby potatoes in salty water over high heat. When they start boiling, lower the temperature, cover and cook for 5-8 minutes or until cooked but still slightly firm. Check them out by poking them with a fork or toothpick.

Cut bell peppers into 1-inch squares. Cut red onion into 1-inch pieces.

Pour olive oil over peppers, onion, cooked baby potatoes, and tomatoes. Mix until all vegetables are evenly coated with the oil. If you like, season with salt and pepper.

Bring all the ingredients together, meat, vegetables, skewers, and tray.

Cut meat strips in half, so you end with two pieces per strip.

Take one skewer, insert a piece of bell pepper, then one of the meat strips. Continue with a cherry tomato, one or two pieces of onion, the second meat strip, bell pepper and finish with the baby potato to cover the pointy end of the skewer.

Place the kabob in the tray. Repeat until you finish with all the meat. 10-12 kabobs.

Grill 4-5 minutes per side or until meat is cooked. If you are using a gas grill, or a stovetop grill, time can vary. Don’t take your eyes away from it, since the meat will cook fast.

Making kabobs for the kids is one of the foods I make that they don’t realize they’re eating veggies, lol. I love beef kabobs as much as they do so it’s something I fix often. I grew up on a black Angus farm so I’ve always enjoyed Angus beef.
