Our simple Asian-inspired kabobs are delicious served with a homemade mint-yogurt dip. If you don't have Chinese five-spice powder on hand, chili powder works just as well. Budget dinner price: $2.43 per serving.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Thinly slice steak across grain. If necessary, flatten slices with palm of hand or meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. In a medium bowl combine beef, soy sauce, and five-spice powder; toss to coat beef. Thread beef on skewers (soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before threading).
- 2For charcoal or gas grill, grill kabobs on rach of covered grill directly over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or to desired doneness, turning once.
- 3Meanwhile, in small bowl combine yogurt and snipped mint. From one lime, finely shred 1 teaspoon peel. Juice the lime. Stir peel and 1 tablespoon juice in to yogurt. Cut remaining lime in wedges, if desired. Serve kabobs with yogurt sauce, mint, and lime.
- 4Serve skewers with yogurt sauce and lime wedges. Top with additional fresh mint.
