For our featured chef recipe, we decided to make some mouth watering summer steak skewers with an interesting flavor twist. We marinated the US Wellness Minute Steaks in a cinnamon spiced marinade. We combined the flavors of cinnamon, curry, and ginger to give this dish a warm and slightly tangy flavor. Surprisingly the warm, sweet, and slightly spicy flavors of cinnamon and curry complimented the steak beautifully. It enhanced the flavor, without overpowering the meat.
We served the steaks with a simple summer salad, full of fresh flavors. This dish quickly became one of our favorite steak recipes so far. Simple, fresh, and perfect for summer.

What a great combination of spices! The minute steaks are a good value package for feeding our family of five. We order them every month, so this will be a refreshing take on one of our staple steaks. And everyone loves kabobs!
I love the spices you've used here. Cinnamon on just about anything is a go in my book!
This looks amazing! Really looking forward to trying it out!
Beautiful! I'm adding these to my menu this week. Do you mean ground ginger in the spices, not fresh, right?
thank you! and yes it is ground ginger.
How does a substitution of chili powder for curry powder sound? Would that work?
Update: using chili powder works just fine! Absolutely delicious!
Thanks Melissa-Sorry it took so long to get back to you! Glad you enjoyed it!!
