Like another reviewer, I cubed the filet and added it to the kebobs and that turned out wonderfully - my only problem was that the zucchini was a tiny bit undercooked. I think I may cook the vegetables separately just to ensure I don't overcook the steak. I also recommend brushing the marinade over the kebobs as they cook - really enhances the flavor!
Grilled Filet Mignon with Vegetable Kebabs
You might be tempted to save beef filet for special occasions, but this low-fat cut is actually perfect weekday fare: it cooks up fast, stays juicy and carries other flavors perfectly. The kebabs are a wonderful mix of lemon, herbs and fresh vegetables.

We made these kabobs the other night and they were delicious!! I didn't read the instructions all the way through, so we cut up the meat to go on the kabobs and it turned out so good, we'll make them like that from now one. We put steak seasoning on the meat chunks before putting them on the kabobs and tossed the veggies in the sauce described in this recipe and they turned out absolutely amazing! We added a little bit of red and yellow peppers for some added veggies; next time I'd increase the zucchini for more green veggies.
This recipe is on our list for the next time friends or family come over for a show off meal! It's that good.
Very good if you don't like zucchini or mushrooms substitute red/yellow or orange bell pepper in place it goes well with the rest of the ingredients...
This receipe sounds really good and I plan on trying it but I don't care for mushrooms or zuccini. Is the other vegtables I can substitue them with that will have the same nutritional values?
I thought the recipe was very good, except I thought it was too sour from the lemon. I added some steak seasoning to the steak and that added better flavoring.
