Grilled Steak Kabobs 
  1. Add steak pieces, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, dijon, lemon juice and freshly cracked pepper to a large ziploc bag and seal. Squish the steak around in the bag to evenly coat the steak. Place bag in a casserole dish and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours. 
  2. Cut all of the veggies for the beef kabob bar and place them on a large serving platter with tongs. You can also prepare the sauces while the beef is marinating. 
  3. Transfer the marinated steak bag contents into a casserole dish and set up next to the veggies with skewers for loading up the beef kabobs. Assemble the steak kabobs with desired extras. 
  4. Add kabobs to a lightly oiled grill set to medium-hot (about 375º to 400º F). Cover and grill to desired temperature. Grill about 5 - 7 minutes for medium-rare (145º F) or 7 to 9 minutes for medium (160º F). Flip kabobs over halfway through cooking. 
  5. Serve with sauce of choice. 
Yum Yum Sauce 
  1. Whisk all ingredients together and refrigerate for 2 - 24 hours before serving. 
Creamy Peppercorn Sauce 
  1. Melt butter in medium hot pan until it just starts to bubble then add brandy. Simmer until reduced and you can no longer smell the brandy. Add shallot and cook until softened and fragrant. 
  2. Add beef broth and simmer until reduced to about half. 
  3. Add cream and pepper and stir until thickened (do not boil once cream has been added). 
  4. For best taste and texture serve immediately. 
Basil Chimichurri 
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
