These Indian steak kabobs are marinated in a fragrant collection of spices and diced onion Greek yogurt dip for a tender and incredibly flavorful steak and potato dinner.
I always hesitate to do Indian food at home. My jars of garam masala and curry powder are probably two of the least used in my hot mess of a spice cabinet (seriously, it’s the one thing I’m at a loss of how to organize in my kitchen and it drives me crazy) because I’m terrified of becoming that house.
I know you know what I mean when I say that.
The one you walk into and you’re immediately slapped in the face with the smell of food. Not the kind where you’re like “omg, this smells amazing, what’s for dinner?” but the “what rotting thing has sat in your Tupperware for too long?” kind. The kind where the furniture in the house has absorbed the smell of spices and not in a good way.
That’s the power of curry powder my friends and it terrifies me.
When we lived in Florida, we had Indian neighbors 3 houses down. Anytime their garage door was open and we’d walk past (which was multiple times a day with a puppy), the smell of curry would attack you 20 yards or so away on the street.
I bet some tasty food came out of that kitchen but the thought of smelling that day in and day out in the house made me want to gag.
Which is exactly why this is a grilled recipe, the perfect way to cook with all the flavorful Indian spices without stinking up your house for days on end.
The diced onion Sabra Greek yogurt dip was the first flavor I tasted and it remains my favorite.
It’s funny because I was never a huge fan of French onion dip anything but weirdly, I love this flavor and that’s exactly what it reminds me of.
I thought it would be the perfect pairing to the bold Indian spices as well as help tenderize the meat in these Indian steak kabobs in marinade form (not that beef tenderloin isn’t already amazingly tender).
I’m having trouble trying to put to words just how delicious this Indian steak was (much like this sweet and spicy Indian chicken, maybe it’s an Indian food thing?) but the kebabs were super tender, incredibly fragrant and flavorful without being overkill in the spice department and made even better with a swim in some extra Greek yogurt dip for serving.
The fresh cilantro is perfect for bringing a refreshing brightness to each bite too, don’t skip out on that.
If you’re looking for more recipes using Indian flavors, make sure to try these Indian chicken burgers too, they’re amazingly flavorful and super moist. The cucumber slaw they’re topped with is so cool and refreshing, you’ll want to eat it all summer long!
