This recipe is from the "Beef - It's what's for dinner" web site. I haven't tried it yet but it looks tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak four 10-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. Cut beef steak into sixteen 1-1/4 inch pieces.
  2. Alternately thread beef and onion pieces evenly onto skewers. Set aside.
  3. Combine preserves, vinegar, oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in small bowl; reserve 1/4 cup for dipping. Brush kabobs with some of remaining sauce.
  4. Place kabobs on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, about 7 to 9 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning and basting with sauce every 2 minutes.
  5. Season kabobs with salt, as desired. Serve with reserved sauce for dipping.

Very enjoyable. I had saved this recipe a while ago, but it was a little difficult for me to find the preserves. Luckily, they had artisanal fig preserves at Whole Foods, which contained some whole figs which I just added to the skewers. I really enjoyed the flavor of this and will make extra for dipping the next time.

What a wonderful meal. Thank you so much for sharing Chilicat. We really enjoyed these tasty kabobs. The meat was sweet, tart, juicy and tender. The sauce was incredible, I used fig balsamic vinegar along with the preserves and I grilled them on my portable grill, it was so yummy! I will definitely make these again.
