Prepare marinade. In a medium bowl combine 1/2 of the chopped parsley,
the garlic, 1 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of olive oil,
the coriander, paprika, and 1/2 tsp. each of salt and black pepper. Add beef strips,
toss to coat. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
Drain meat, reserving marinade. Thread meat accordion-style onto eight
10-inch skewers. Thread tomatoes onto four 10-inch skewers. Grill beef on the
rack of a covered grill over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes turning occasionally.
Add tomatoes the last 2-3 minutes and grill until lightly charred, turning once
or twice. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; heat until it boils.
For yogurt sauce: in a small bowl stir together the yogurt, remaining parsley, 1/2 tsp.
lemon zest, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, and 1/4 tsp. salt and black pepper. Serve skewers
with yogurt sauce and, if desired, over naan or pita bread. Drizzle with hot marinade,
top with additional parsley left over and ENJOY!
