  •  1 pound beef flank steak, trimmed*
  •  1/4 cup 100%-pure passion fruit juice or papaya juice, such as Cere's brand
  •  4 tablespoons very thinly sliced green onions (2)
  •  4 1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  •  2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  •  1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger
  •  3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  •  3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  •  3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  •  1 tablespoon lemon juice
  •  1 tablespoon lime juice
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt
  •  12 assorted miniature sweet peppers, halved lengthwise
  •  Nonstick cooking spray


  1.  For the marinade, in a medium bowl whisk together passion fruit juice, 2 tablespoons of the green onions, the soy sauce, oil, ginger, cumin, coriander, and 1/2 teaspoon of the black pepper; set aside.
  2.  For the drizzle, in a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, lime juice, salt, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, whisking until salt is dissolved. Cover and chill until serving time.
  3.  Slice meat across the grain into thin slices. Place meat in a resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over meat; seal bag, turning to coat meat. Place in a shallow dish. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator 1 to 2 hours.
  4.  Thread meat slices accordion-style onto twelve 12-inch skewers,** adding sweet peppers with meat. Lightly coat grill rack with cooking spray.
  5.  For a charcoal or gas grill, grill skewers on prepared rack of a covered grill directly over medium-high heat about 4 minutes or until meat is desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling time. Transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle with the lemon-lime mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons green onions.


 Tip: For easier cutting, freeze flank steak 30 to 60 minutes before slicing.

 If using wooden skewers, soak in enough water to cover for 30 minutes; drain before using.
