Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Kosher salt and pepper

  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into thin strips

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • Soft cracker bread (lavash) or pita bread, warmed

  • Chopped fresh Italian parsley

Directions

  1. For marinade: In a medium bowl combine 4 tablespoons parsley, the garlic, 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup olive oil, the coriander, paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Add beef; toss to coat. Chill, covered, 30 minutes.

  2. Drain meat, reserving marinade. Thread meat accordion-style onto eight 10-inch skewers*. Thread tomatoes onto four 10-inch skewers. Grill beef on the rack of a covered grill over medium 6 to 8 minutes or until desired doneness, turning occasionally. Add tomatoes the last 2 to 3 minutes, grilling until lightly charred, turning once. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; heat to boiling.

  3. For yogurt sauce: In a small bowl stir together yogurt, remaining parsley, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Serve skewers with yogurt sauce and, if desired, over lavash. Drizzle with hot marinade. Top with additional parsley. Serves 4.
