Asian Beef Vegetable Skewers

These delicious Asian Beef Vegetable Skewers are delicious and perfect for grilling season! I love the assortment of colors you get from the green pepper, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes, but feel free to use your favorite veggies! 

Make sure to marinade the meat overnight so that it will absorb all the yummy flavors from the marinade! For a change of pace, add 2 tbsp of sugar free bbq sauce to the marinade or brush it on at end for a delicious Asian BBQ meal! Now get those grills a burning and start cooking!

Asian Beef Vegetable Skewers

14 oz raw beef sirloin cut into 1 inch pieces ~ yields 10 oz when cooked 
(2 Leans)

Marinade for Meat:
1/4 cup lite soy sauce (4 Condiments)
1 tsp beef bouillon granules (1 Condiment)
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp garlic powder (1 Condiment)
1/2 tsp ground ginger (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1/2 Condiment)

1 cup sliced yellow squash (2 Greens)
1 cup cherry tomatoes (2 Greens)
1 cup green pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces (2 Greens)

Combine ingredients for marinade in a small bowl. Marinate meat overnight in a large ziploc bag. Add veggies to marinade an hour before cooking. Discard marinade and assemble meat and veggies on skewers. Put the skewers of meat and veggies on the grill and cook until desired doneness.

Makes 2 Servings

Per Serving:
1 Lean (5 oz cooked), 3 Greens (1 1/2 cups of veggies) and 2 Condiments per serving (No Healthy Fat required)

* If you would rather weigh your veggies for accuracy, here is the vegetable conversion chart.

** Only half of the marinade is absorbed into the meat and veggies so only half are counted as Condiments. The rest of the marinade is discarded. This marinade recipe has a total of 3.75 Condiments per serving so half absorbed into the meat is 2 Condiments.

*** Add some variety by adding 2 tbsp of G Hughes sugarfree bbq sauce to the marinade for a yummy Asian BBQ dish! This would give you 2.5 Condiments per serving since it is treated as part of the marinade.
