Honey Lime Glazed Steak Kabobs with Summer Melon Kabobs

Serve with Quick Greek Brown Rice

When I think of summer and food, my taste buds immediately crave a simple but flavorful grilled meal. This kabob recipe fits the bill with an easy, slightly sweet marinade for both the steak and summer melons. Dipped in a cool, cumin-scented yogurt sauce and paired with a nutrient-rich brown rice side, this meal cries out for al fresco dining.

Grilled Sirloin With Tangy Mop Sauce

Serve with and grilled corn with chili and cilantro cream; green beans with garlic-lime gemolata-

I was perusing a magazine and came across a recipe for “mop sauce”. It looked like a barbeque sauce to me, but upon researching exactly what is a mop sauce, I learned that it is a thin sauce applied to meat as it is being grilled or broiled. While containing a lot of flavor, it is thin enough to leave a thin layer on the surface of the meat that soaks in as the meat cooks.

Let me tell you, I am now a huge fan of mop sauces! It eliminates the need to marinate a meat, leaves the meat tender, and imparts such amazing yet subtle flavor. Best of all, you can save most of it to serve with your grilled meat, hence, “mopping” up the meat with it. Most mops contain Worcestershire or soy sauce, but I mimicked the smoky flavor without all the preservatives and sodium. It’s sweet and tangy all at the same time!
