Jalapeno Beef Kebabs

Thanks to Laurel, I found a whole bunch of grilling recipes to try. We made this one together, it was suprisingly delicious. Okay, I was surprised.

Jalapeno Beef Kebabs
1 10 ounce jar jalapeno pepper jelly
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
4 small purple or white boiling onions (I used chopped yellow onions)
4 baby pattypan squash, halved crosswise (I used zucchini)
1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
4 fresh tomatillos, husked and cut into quarters
1/2 of a medium red or green sweet pepper, cut into 1-inch squares

For glaze, in a small saucepan combine the jalapeno jelly, lime juice, and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat until jelly is melted. Remove from heat.

In a small covered saucepan cook onions in a small amount of boiling water for 3 minutes. Add squash; cook for 1 minutes more; drain. Trim fat from steak. Cut steak into 1-inch cubes. On eight 6- to 8-inch metal skewers (I used bamboo soaked in water), alternately thread onions, squash, steak, tomatillos, and sweet pepper.

For a charcoal grill, grill kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 14 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center, turning once and brushing occasionally with glaze during the last 5 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place kabobs on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)
