  • ½ large green bell pepper or 1 poblano pepper, cut to form 1-inch pieces
  • ½ of a large sweet onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 10 to 12-inch metal skewers

Step 1: In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, cumin, chile powder, and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Set the bowl aside.

Step 2: Preheat the grill to high temperature.

Step 3: Put the potatoes into a container that is microwave-safe and cover the container. Microwave on high setting until the potatoes are just tender when they are pierced with a fork, approximately 3 to 3 ½ minutes.

Step 4: In a large bowl, toss steak, pepper pieces, and potatoes with the olive oil and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Thread the steak, potatoes, onions, and peppers onto the skewers, alternating each on each skewer.

Step 6: Serve kebabs with the sauce prepared in Step 1.
