  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 TBS EACH onion powder, garlic powder

  • 1 tsp EACH paprika, pepper, dried basil, dried dill weed

  • ½ tsp EACH dried oregano, dried rosemary, ground coriander

  • 1/2-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes


Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl or large freezer bag (whatever dish you are going to use to marinate your steak. Remove ⅓ cup (to use later for vegetables and basting).

  • Add steak to remaining marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate 2-6 hours in the refrigerator.

  • Add potatoes to a large microwave safe bowl with a tight-fitting lid. Add 3-4 tablespoons water. Microwave, covered, 4-5 minutes or just until fork tender; drain. Add peppers, onions, 3 tablespoons of Reserved Marinade, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ pepper. Toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate.

  • Soak wooden skewers if using at this time (they require at least 30 minutes)

  • Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
