I travel constantly for work, which hasn't been great for my waistline. After eating in all of the best restaurants in the world for a few years, I realized that I had gained around 30 pounds. Fortunately, I was able to work with a health coach who taught me some valuable skills for my way of life. She taught me how to recognize unhealthy foods and swap them out for better options--even in foreign hotels. The results were incredible. I was able to lose weight while enjoying my travel adventures. My blog is for anyone out there who wants to enjoy healthier food on the go.
Do you want to add some variety and a little bit of more "upscale" cuisine to your bar and grill menu? Customers love steak, but preparing it to order can be labor-intensive. A good alternative is to offer several varieties of steak skewers. Customers craving red meat will gladly order, and the skewers fit your casual vibe a lot better than a full steak. Here are two delicious steak skewer recipes to add to your menu.
Chili Lime Steak Skewers
In a large bowl with a lid, whisk together all of the ingredients, except for the steak. Add the steak, and toss the steak cubes to ensure they are evenly coated. Cover the container, and place it in the fridge to marinate for at least 8 hours.
Once the steak has finished marinating, construct the steak skewers by loading 5 – 6 cubes of steak onto each wooden skewer. Discard the excess marinade, and place the constructed skewers back into the covered container. Keep the container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
When a customer orders the steak skewers, grill them for 3 – 4 minutes per side on a medium-hot grill.
Three-Pepper Steak Skewers
Assemble the skewers by loading 5 – 6 pieces of steak onto each one. Set the skewers in a container with a lid, and place it in the refrigerator. You can keep the skewers in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Meanwhile, combine the paprika, salt, garlic, cayenne pepper, chipotle pepper, and chili powder. Stir well to ensure the spices are evenly distributed.
When a customer orders the three-pepper skewers, brush them with a light coating of olive oil. Then, sprinkle on a generous portion of the spice mixture (about 1 teaspoon per skewer) before grilling the skewers for 3 – 4 minutes per side on a medium-hot grill.
For both of the recipes above, use two skewers per order to a smaller lunch or bar-menu type order, or three for a full dinner order.
