Lime Steak Skewers!

Kabobs! We love anything skewered, especially with limes! Fave steak recipe - I usually make this Lime Steak with a pan on high heat, searing each side of the cubed steak. This time I tried it on the grill, skewered the steak cubes onto bamboo chopsticks (10 pair, 20 pieces for $1). Yummy with no smoky house!

Tenderloin (fillet mignon cut into cubes)
Salt & Pepper
Fish Sauce
Maggi or Soy Sauce
Fresh Limes
Olive Oil

(1) In a bowl, add equal amounts of fish sauce and Maggi, enough to coat and season all the meat. Don't add too much or else it will get way too salty. Add enough sugar granulated garlic to coat the meat. Add pepper and a tiny bit of salt or no salt. Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
(2) Set the Grill oh HIGH. Use bamboo chopsticks to skewer 4-5 pieces per stick. Brush on Olive Oil.
(3) Place the skewers on the grill (gas grill here), cover down, for 3-4 minutes, then turn once for another 2-3 minutes. Check for the center to be reddish, not hard, barely firm, RARE.
(4) Serve with cut lime wedges, soy sauce or maggi for dip, and fish sauce with fresh cut chilis.
School-night dinners....
