This yummy dinner is quick to cook. All you need for sides are buttered egg noodles and salad or green beans.
Ingredients
1/2 pound lean round or stew beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt to taste
Cherry tomatoes (20 or so)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
Instructions
1. Combine the beef cubes, cherry tomatoes, soy sauce, and honey in a medium bowl and toss to coat.
2. Skewer the beef cubes and tomatoes, alternating or separating them onto different skewers (whatever makes your kids happy). If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes or so beforehand.
3.Place the kebobs on a small baking sheet and keep them covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator until you're ready to cook them. The kebobs can be broiled for 10 to 14 minutes (turn once) or grilled. Serves two adults and two kids, with leftovers. less
