Adobo is the hot, spicy, smoky sauce that canned chipotle peppers come packed in. You can freeze the chipotles and any leftover sauce for future use. This cooling melon relish balances the heat of the marinade. Serve with hot steamed rice or a green salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb beef sirloin grilling steak (1 inch/2.5 cm thick)
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 red onion
Melon Cucumber Relish:
  • 1 cup diced peeled honeydew melons
  • 1/2 cup diced seeded English cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Trim fat from beef; cut beef into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes and place in bowl. Add adobo sauce, garlic, salt and pepper; toss to combine. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Cut 1/2 inch (1 cm) off top and bottom of onion; finely dice and set aside. Cut remaining onion into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks.

Alternately thread beef and onion chunks loosely onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning 3 times, until beef is browned but still pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Melon Cucumber Relish: Meanwhile, combine melon, cucumber, parsley, vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, pepper and diced onion. Serve with brochettes.
