Steak is always great off the grill and an incredible source of protein rich in B vitamins, zinc and iron…things we do not get from poultry or fish.  Peppers, onions, tomatoes, and garlic make a great side.  This pairing can be enjoyed all year long and takes a short time to prepare.

Ingredients:

Steak (number of people you are feeding will dictate how much)

3 Green Peppers

1 Sweet Onion

Garlic

Olive Oil

3 Tomatoes

1 TBS Butter

Parmesan Cheese

 

Wash the vegetables.  Core the peppers and get ride of the seeds.  Cube or quarter the tomatoes.  Peel and chop the onion.  Put the steak on the grill and cook to your liking.  Mince the garlic and add vegetables, oil, and garlic to frying pan and sautee.  Grate some of the parm into a bowl this will be used to top the vegetables right before serving.  The butter slice thin and put the steak 2 minutes before taking off the grill….right before taking the steak off the grill dust with some of the parm.

Shish-Ka-Bob, original Dragobobs!

drago

Summer is coming to an end.  What better way to end summer than with the season favorite.  Shish-kabobs!  Better yet, the real-deal, original party in your mouth Dragobobs!  Never had them…click the link and get some.  They have been a favorite of the Chicago south side Hegewish neighborhood for decades.   How did I get them?  Well I know a guy…better yet the guy.  :-)

Ka-bobs are a great year round food, as long as you are willing to brave the elements.  This example is the original Dragobobs.  (You can also get them in chicken breast, if you want the healthiest option.)

Here is the prep…insider secret seek out the bamboo skewers as they do not splinter.

I skewered some vegetables to go with the pork.  “My guy” said via text that my meat is too close together…whatever that means…and that it will cook a bit longer.    Normal cook time is about 15 minutes on medium or 350-400.  Apparently the skewing directions can be found HERE on their facebook page. 

 

After the grill the skewers get dipped in here (a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice…exact IMG_2787ratio I am not sharing), and then ready to eat.  The vegetables will also be basted with this before going on the grill.
