Steak Skewers with Cilantro-Garlic Sauce

Yield 12 skewers



  1. Set aside 1 teaspoon of the minced garlic.
  2. Place the steak strips in a plastic bag with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 1/2 tablespoon of salt, the reserved teaspoon of minced garlic, and a generous grind of pepper.  Seal and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  3. Add the parsley, cilantro, 1 teaspoon of salt, and a few grinds of pepper to your food processor.  Pulse until it's chopped and blended.
  4. With the motor running, add the lemon juice and 1 cup of oil in a steady stream.
  5. Pour the sauce into a bowl, cover it, and refrigerate it until needed.
  6. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes and heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  7. Thread the meat onto the skewers and grill them for about 3 minutes per side.
  8. Serve the skewers with the sauce drizzled over or in a side dish for dipping.
