Another KISS recipe. This is a modification of my copycat Applebee’s Bourbon Street Sirloin. Great taste and extremely tender.
I wanted to do some kabobs but my search for a recipe was at best frustrating. Most have 10 plus ingredients listed and involved overnight timing. What is wrong with these people? So after reading 15 plus recipes, I modified my Applebee’s Bourbon Street Sirloin recipe.
1) KISS with only a few ingredients. I used four.
2) Quick. I marinaded for 2 hours but I think anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours would be fine.
3) Great taste and tender. Yep it was.
Notes: I didn’t use any salt and pepper. Why? I felt there was some sodium in the Worcestershire and soy sauces. The pepper I though could be added later. It didn’t need it. It was busting with flavor. The Accent functions both as a flavor enhancer and tenderizer. It is MSG so if you’re sensitive or don’t want to use it, just eliminate it.
There was enough for 3-4 servings but we ate it all.
1 1/2 lbs of top sirloin or other good beef without a lot of fat
Optional fruit and vegetables for the kabobs (I used 2 green peppers, 1 red onion and 1/2 fresh pineapple)
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T Soy sauce
2 T water
1 t garlic powder
1 t Accent
1) Trim beef of any fat and cut into about 1 inch cubes
2) Mix marinade and then pour over meat and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until needed. 30 minutes to 4 hours.
3) If using wooden skewers, pre-soak in water for 30 minutes.
4) Prepare any desired fruit and vegetables. Cut into chunks about 1 inch.
5) Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil.
6) Prepare kabobs by alternating ingredients.
7) Grill over high direct heat until mild charring on fruits and vegetables. About 15 minutes.
