Sweet and Spicy Kebabs
1/2 C. apricot preserves
1 C. Italian dressing
2 cloves chopped garlic

2 lbs. beef sirloin tip, trimmed and cut in 1 1/4-inch cubes
1 onion, cut in wedges
1 bell pepper (any color), cut into 1-inch squares
6 long metal skewers
In a medium bowl, combine preserves, Italian dressing, chopped garlic and red pepper flakes to make marinade.
Place 3/4 cup of the marinade (reserve the remainder in the refrigerator) and beef cubes in a resealable bag; refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
