If you're like me, you probably have a tendency to turn your meat into kabobs. However, sometimes a primal craving strikes and all you want is a nice, big, juicy steak. So why not keep your meat intact and skewer only the veggies? This grilled beef sirloin is slathered in a fragrant mustard-thyme glaze and the farmer's market inspired skewers will keep you from feeling guilty. Pair it with some garlic bread and you'll be set. Oh and did I mention that it's simple enough you could make it for dinner tonight, tomorrow or any other day of the week? To get the recipe,
