Steak and Potato Kabobs

This easy dinner has a two ingredient marinade that is top notch!

We all love food on a stick right?

Something about eating food in that form makes it fun.  I especially like it {as do most} in the summer.  It's hot, we are often eating outside, we want our food simple and often times we are traveling with it as well.

A stick holds all the yumminess together!

For whatever reason I rarely make kabobs.  I just don't think of it.  But a couple of weeks back I had two steaks ready for grilling in the fridge, a few peppers on my counter and a handful of potatoes that I NEEDED to use in fear I'd forget about them and they'd sprout from one side of the house to the other.

So, needless to say these kabobs were invented.

I didn't just want to sprinkle seasoning on these and call it a day I wanted to spread some lovely goodness all over them as a marinade.

Strike me down if you'd like...but I love A-1 steak sauce.  I know, I know, I know, if you have a good steak and cook it well it shouldn't need anything on it.  I've heard all the "rules".  But I've loved that steak sauce since I was a kid and I've been know to break the rules a bit.

Besides my beloved A-1 sauce, I love butter.  Who doesn't?  I love the real stuff, not margarine.  And what goes better with a potato than butter?

So my mind got to thinking and I figured if I melted butter together WITH my favorite A-1 steak sauce it would probably taste pretty darn good.  So, that is what I did.  I melted the two together, brushed it all over the kabobs prior to grilling and we had a killer meal.

Steak and Potato Kabobs


4 potatoes
2 New York strips {or any cut}
2 large red or yellow bell peppers, sliced
1 stick butter, melted
1 bottle A-1 steak sauce

1.  Wash the potatoes and pierce with a fork.  Place in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the potatoes and cook for another 2 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool a bit.  The potatoes will not be fully done, but this helps the cooking time on the grill.
2.  When the potatoes are able to be handled, cut in half gently to not break them.
3.  Cut the steak into bite size pieces along with the peppers and set aside.
4.  Run the wooden kabob skewers under water until fully soaked {this will help prevent burning on the grill}.
5.  Skewer the kabobs, alternating with a potato, steak bite and pepper.
6.  In a bowl combine the melted butter and A-1 steak sauce.  Brush this liberally all over the kabobs and let sit for at least 15 minutes before grilling.
7.  Grill kabobs over medium-high heat about 10 minutes a side.
