Grilled Beef Skewers with Green Onions

I found this recipe years ago, but it got pushed to the back of the recipe box, so I thought it was time to dust it off and make them again. I forgot how much I love these, and I really need to make them more often.

Part of the reason for pulling the recipe out was for Truckin' Man and his grilling adventures. He wanted to try making some type of skewer or kabob. As luck would have it, the day we were having these, he didn't have any time for grilling, but they are so quick and easy I took care of them myself. And, much to Truckin' Man's shock, I did not burn them. I don't know where he got this idea that I burn everything on the grill, just because sometimes I forget and walk away and start working on something else...? Oops! I stayed focus this time though, and they were grilled to perfection.  The recipe is very adaptable, too. I have skipped the mustard when I have been out. You can increase or decrease the garlic to your liking. And of course, the red pepper flake. I used way less for Truckin' Mans dining pleasure than I normally would!

Grilled Beef Skewers with Green Onions

1 Lb Sirloin Steak
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
4 tsp fresh minced garlic
1 tsp red pepper flake ( if you like spicy, use one tablespoon!)
One bunch green onions

Cut steak into cubes. In large bowl, combine dijon mustard, soy sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic, and pepper.  Stir until combined. Add steak, cover and marinate for 30 minutes.

When ready, cut green onion into one inch pieces.  Thread beef and onions onto skewers. Grill over medium heat for 10 - 12 minutes. Baste with remaining marinade while grilling.
