INGREDIENTS: • 1 lb. sirloin steak, cut 1½" cubes • ½ tsp dried oregano • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes • 7 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided • 3 tsp grated garlic, divided • Kosher salt and black pepper • ¼ c smooth tahini • 1 tsp honey • 8 oz dried orzo (about 1¼ c) • 2½ c low-sodium chicken broth • 1 red onion, cut into 1½" pieces • 1 large yellow or orange bell pepper, seeds removed, cut into 1½" pieces • 10 oz grape tomatoes (2 c) • 2 English cucumbers, sliced • 5 oz baby spinach • 1 bunch fresh chives, sliced

DIRECTIONS: 1. In a large bowl, combine steak,

oregano, red pepper flakes, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 2½ tsp garlic, and 1 tsp salt. Cover and marinate at room temperature at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours, or refrigerate up to 4 hours. 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine remaining 1 tbsp lemon juice and ½ tsp garlic; season with a large pinch of salt. Let sit about 20 minutes. 3. Add tahini, honey, 3 tbsp olive oil, and 3 tbsp water to dressing. Vigorously whisk, adding more water as needed, until smooth and easily pourable; season with salt and black pepper. Set aside. 4. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tbsp olive oil. Add orzo and cook, stirring, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally and adding more broth ¼ cup at a time if needed, until

broth is absorbed and orzo is tender, 8 to 10 minutes; season with salt and black pepper. Cover to keep warm. 5. Preheat grill for 5 minutes. Brush grates with oil. Thread 8 skewers with steak, onion, bell pepper, and tomatoes, alternating with 3 to 4 steak cubes per skewer. Drizzle kebabs with remaining olive oil; season with salt and pepper. 6. Grill skewers, turning occasionally, until vegetables are tender and meat is cooked to desired degree of doneness, 8 to 15 minutes total (grills can vary). 7. In a large bowl, toss cucumbers and spinach with half of dressing. Stir chives into orzo mixture. 8. Divide salad and orzo among bowls; top with kebabs. Drizzle remaining dressing over orzo.
