Cut a lean beef top sirloin steak into 1-1/4 inch pieces and season with pepper. Or opt for pre-cut lean beef cubes from the grocery store. Pair the sizzling steak kabobs with a tangy sauce--it’s great for summer time entertaining.

To make lime wedges, cut lime crosswise in half. Cut each half into quarters, forming wedges.

When cutting onion into wedges for kabobs, leave root end intact so wedges hold together during skewering.
