NC Beef Skewers

This appetizer can be done so many ways.  You can grill your beef if you prefer and you can use any cut of beef.  You can also season the meat to your preference.  You just don’t want anything too overpowering for your other ingredients.  I would drizzle the tomato and mozzarella with olive oil and salt and pepper.  This is also great to do with leftover steak, if you have any.

Beef tips (1 pound will feed 8-10 for appetizers) cut in half
Grape tomatoes
Fresh mozzarella balls
Black olives


I cut my beef tips in half so they are bite-size.  Season your meat with Worcestershire and salt and pepper.  Brown your beef in a pan with a little olive oil until medium well.

Place a piece of beef between your other ingredients on each toothpick having only 3 items per appetizer.  You can mix and match.
