These steak kabobs get their crunch and spiciness from unexpected sources peanuts and hot pepper jelly. To make this a quick and easy grilled dinner, ask the butcher to cut the beef into cubes for kabobs. Mushrooms, red bell pepper and corn on-the-cob complete the meal.
Meat and vegetables take different amounts of time to cook, so I thread the meat onto one skewer and the vegetables onto another. Each skewer can be removed from the heat when ready. This way you wont overcook the meat while the vegetables finish cooking.
