Instead of burgers and hot dogs at your next barbecue, these easy steak skewers will give your cookout a steakhouse like atmosphere.

Serves 4

Prep time: 20 minutes

Rich and flavorful, a good grass-fed steak cubed and grilled with mushrooms and onions is sure to be a hit. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar at the end adds more flavor.

My favorite steak to use is rib eye. Chuck eye makes a less expensive alternative. If you're looking for something leaner, sirloin works...but it's good to marinade it beforehand. Rib eye and chuck eye steaks have a lot of fat that helps keep the steak tender during cooking.

Tip: You can use wooden or metal skewers for these, but if you use wood, you should soak them first to keep them from catching fire.
