Marinaded Steak Skewers

Are you looking for an easy, no-mess meal this holiday weekend?  These steak skewers are perfect for the grill and you only need to clean up the skewers and the knife you used.

Marinaded Steak Skewers

3/4# steak (I used filet mignon so it was extra tender)
8 oz baby Bella mushrooms
2# petite Klondike potatoes
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (I used one that was pear infused)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano

Boil potatoes until fork tender (about 12 minutes), drain and cool.  Pour the balsamic vinegar and olive oil into a gallon size sealable plastic bag.  Add in the garlic and spices.  Cut steak into 1" cubes and add them and the cleaned mushrooms into the plastic bag.  Shake so all the spices are evenly distributed.  Put in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.  I cut the potatoes in half but you can use whole ones if preferred.  Thread the steak, mushrooms and potatoes on skewers.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place on a hot grill and cook for 8 minutes before carefully flipping and cooking for an additional 8 minutes on the 2nd side.   

Makes 4 skewers.
