Grilling is a great way to add flavour to foods and enjoy the great outdoors! This summertime meal takes full advantage of all the local produce available.

Ingredients

Scale

1/3 cup (75 mL) plain yogurt

1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lemon zest

2 tbsp (20 mL) lemon juice

1/4 cup (60 mL) canola oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano

1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper, divided

1 lb. (500 g) 1 to 1 ½ -inches (2 to 2.5 cm) thick Beef Grilling Steak (e.g. Top Sirloin or Strip Loin), cut into cubes

1 bunch rapini, trimmed

1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 ½ inch (4 cm) pieces

1 large yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 ½ inch (4 cm) pieces

1 pkg (200 g) halloumi cheese, cut into 1 ½ inch (4 cm) pieces

8 to 10 button mushrooms


Instructions

In a shallow glass dish, whisk together yogurt, lemon zest and juice, with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the oil, garlic, oregano and 1⁄4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper. Add beef and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour.

TIP: If using bamboo skewers be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before skewering beef and vegetables.

In a pot of boiling water, blanch rapini for 3 minutes. Drain well and pat dry. Toss rapini with remaining oil.

Preheat barbecue grill to medium-high (400°F/200°C ). Thread alternating pieces of beef, halloumi and vegetables onto metal or soaked bamboo skewers; discard any remaining marinade. Grill skewers and rapini, turning occasionally, for about 8 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness and rapini is lightly charred. Sprinkle remaining salt and pepper over rapini and serve with skewers.
