Cinnamon Steak Skewers
These skewers bring unique flavors to classic grilled steak. Cinnamon is a great pairing with beef, albeit underutilized. The addition of curry and ginger give this dish a warm and slightly tangy flavor.

I made these for dinner a few nights ago for my family of 4. I have 2 teens who are not loving this new switch to paleo… they miss chips, bread and potatoes. 🙂 Recipes like this one help to make the switch. Great flavor! I had hoped to have leftovers for lunch the next day, but no such luck. They were all devoured. Served it with the suggested arugula and asparagus salad and it too was a hit!
Our family really enjoyed these … very different and a nice change-up. Next time I will back down on the cinnamon by about half, but we also didn’t mind it as it was. I had a hard time coming up with a side dish for this, and realized mid-meal that a sweet potato or pumpkin side would be perfect. Great recipe!
