Have slithering good fun with juicy marinated steak, tricked up on skewers and served with a smoky-spicy dipping sauce.
Updated Oct 22, 2009

Ingredients

Beef

  • 16 wooden skewers
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 lb beef flank steak

Spicy Sauce

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 canned chipotle chili in adobo sauce

Steps

  • 1
    In 11x8-inch baking dish, soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, thyme leaves, salt and garlic. Slice beef across the grain into 1/4-inch strips. Place beef in oil mixture. Seal bag; refrigerate 2 to 4 hours to marinate.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in blender or food processor, place sauce ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed until smooth.
  • 4
    Thread beef on skewers, twirling 2 to 3 beef strips around each skewer to look like worms. Reserve any remaining marinade.
  • 5
    Set oven control to broil. Place skewers on broiler pan. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 3 minutes. Turn skewers, and brush with marinade. (Discard any remaining marinade.) Broil 2 to 3 minutes longer or until desired doneness. Serve with sauce.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Flank steak is a less tender cut of beef with really great flavor. Because it is less tender, it usually requires marinating.
  • tip 2
    For easier slicing, place steak in freezer for 1 hour or until firm but not frozen; slice thinly across grain of meat.
