Choices/Exchanges: 2 Nonstarchy vegetable, 3 Lean protein, 1/2 Fat



  • light beer
    1/4 cup
  • ketchup
    1/4 cup
  • garlic (minced)
    3 clove
  • mustard powder
    1 tsp
  • hot sauce
    1 tsp
  • salt
    1/2 tsp
  • boneless top sirloin steak (cut into 16 cubes)
    1 lbs
  • large onion (cut through the core into 16 wedges, each about 1/3-inch thick)


  1. In a large shallow glass dish, whisk together the beer, ketchup, garlic, mustard, hot-pepper sauce, and salt. Add the beef, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours, turning occasionally.

  2. When the beef is marinated, lightly spray the grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill on medium high.

  3. Drain the beef, pouring the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring the marinade to a boil over high heat. Boil for at least 5 minutes. (This destroys harmful bacteria.)

  4. Alternating, thread 4 beef cubes and 4 onion wedges onto each of four metal skewers.

  5. Place the kebabs on the grill. Brush with half the marinade.

  6. Grill, covered, for 5 minutes. Turn over the kebabs. Using a clean basting brush, brush with the remaining marinade. Grill, covered, for 5–8 minutes for medium rare, or until the beef is the desired doneness.
