Grilled Filet Mignon With Vegetable Kebabs

Grilled Filet Mignon With Vegetable Kebabs
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

You might be tempted to save beef filet for special occasions, but this low-fat cut is actually perfect weekday fare: it cooks up fast, stays juicy and carries other flavors perfectly. The kebabs are a wonderful mix of lemon, herbs and fresh vegetables.

Ingredients
Prep: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon
    dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 16 
    cherry tomatoes
  • 10 ounces
    white mushrooms, stemmed
  • medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • small red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 pound
    filet mignon steak, 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick, cut into 4 pieces
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Combine lemon zest, lemon juice, oil, oregano, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade in a small bowl. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and onion to the remaining marinade; toss well to coat. Thread the vegetables onto eight 10-inch skewers. Drizzle the vegetables and steak with the reserved marinade.
  3. Grill the steak 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Grill the vegetable kebabs, turning frequently, until tender and lightly charred, 8 to 12 minutes total. Remove the vegetables from the skewers and serve with the steak.

 

Tip

Tip: When using wooden skewers, wrap the exposed parts with foil to keep them from burning. (Contrary to conventional wisdom, soaking skewers in water doesn't protect them.)
