2   tbsp (30 mL) fresh lemon juice
4   tsp (20 mL) Buffalo Rub
1   tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
2   garlic cloves, pressed
12   oz (350 g) beef tenderlion filet
1/8   tsp (0.5 mL) salt
8   jumbo uncooked prawns (10-15 per pound), peeled and deveined
1 1/4   lbs (575 g) small Yukon gold potatoes (about 6 potatoes)
1   medium red bell pepper
2   small red onions
1   oz (30 g) blue cheese, crumbled
1/4   cup (50 mL) chopped fresh parsley
  1. For marinade, combine lemon juice, rub, oil and pressed garlic in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl; set aside 1 tbsp (15 mL) for later use with skewers. Cut beef into twelve 2-in. (5-cm) pieces. Place beef, half of the remaining marinade and salt into Classic Batter Bowl; mix well. Place prawns and remaining half of the marinade into Small Batter Bowl; mix well. Cover and refrigerate beef and prawns 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cut potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick (1-cm) slices. Place potatoes and 2 cups (500 mL) water into Large Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 14-16 minutes or until cooked through but still firm; drain. Cut bell pepper into sixteen 1-in. (2.5-cm) pieces and onions into 16 wedges.
  3. Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Alternately thread beef, prawns and vegetables onto four BBQ Skewers. Spray grill with nonstick cooking spray for grilling. Grill potatoes, uncovered, 2-3 minutes. Turn potatoes over with BBQ Tongs; grill, uncovered, 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear. Combine potatoes and blue cheese in Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl; mix well. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Grill skewers, covered, 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear. Turn over and continue to grill, covered, 2-3 minutes or until internal temperature of beef reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare doneness. Brush skewers with reserved marinade. Sprinkle potatoes with parsley; serve with skewers.
