DIRECTIONS

Soak 12 wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes.

In a blender or food processor, pulse together basil, cilantro, parsley, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, shallot, crushed red pepper flakes, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. With motor running, add ยผ cup more olive oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Thread onion, peppers, and steak onto soaked skewers (make them extra sturdy by using two skewers per kebab). Arrange skewers on a platter and season generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, turning skewers to coat.

Grill skewers over high heat 10 to 12 minutes, turning every few minutes to brown on all sides, or until the interior temperature of the steak reaches 145 degrees F for medium-rare (160 degrees F for medium). Let sit 5 minutes.

Serve skewers with chimichurri and your choice of salad!  Thanks to www.delish.com.au for the recipe!!
