Spiced Beef Kabobs #FoodieExtravaganza

These delicious sirloin kabobs spiced with ground coriander and served with a lemony mint yogurt sauce are the perfect addition to your next appetizer buffet.

Join the gang at Foodie Extravaganza as we celebrate World Tapas Day........

I do a lot of entertaining during the summer months and often I will just serve tapas which translates to small plate or, here in the USA, appetizers.  Traditionally Tapas would be Spanish finger foods however, as with most fusion foods, it now is acceptable to include any appetizers on a Tapas Table.

Juli of Pandemonium Noshery asked us the members of Foodie Extravaganza to help her celebrate today by bringing our favorite tapas or small plate to the party.  Let's see what the others have cooked up for us.

      I like this recipe because it can be made up ahead of time and then when guests arrive they take only minutes on the grill.  They are ready before the cocktails are finished being served.

      The recipe, as written, serves four as a small plate or 2 as a main course.  When served as a tapas, I often serve with mini pitas.  When I serve these for dinner, I warm large pitas and we stuff them and eat them as sandwiches.  YUM.

      Foodie Extravaganza is a fun group that gets together each month to celebrate Food Holidays.  We would love to have you join us.  If you are a food blogger and interested let me know in the comments so we can send you an invitation to our Facebook page.
