Curry Beef Kabob Bites

These one-bite skewers are little magnets for meat lovers. You can replace the potato with a cube of regular cooked potato, or mango, papaya, pineapple or melon. The fruit offers a sweet contrast to the spicy curried meat.

Preparation

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes; drain and let cool. Cut into quarters; place in large bowl.

Cut steak into 3/4-inch (2 cm) cubes; add to potatoes. Add coriander, curry paste, ginger, oil, 1 tbsp (15 mL) water, garlic, salt and pepper; toss to combine. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Onto each of 24 small skewers or sturdy toothpicks, thread 1 beef cube and 1 potato quarter. Place kabobs, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on rimmed baking sheet. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Broil, turning once, until steak is browned but still pink inside, about 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
