Marinated Steak Kebabs

One of my favorite things about living in Arizona is that “grilling” season is a year-round occasion at our house. I love cooking everything on the grill because it tastes amazing and it keeps the mess outside!

One of my absolute favorite, EASY summer meals is kebabs! Chicken Kebabs, Steak Kebabs, Veggie Kebabs; I love them all! These Cajun Chicken and Sausage Kebabs are absolutely amazing, especially when I’m craving a little spice. But, these marinated steak kebabs are the stuff of summer grilling dreams!

They start with my favorite easy steak marinade recipe that’s only 5 ingredients, and then all you need is some chopped bell peppers onion, and skewers to layer everything together.

What is the best type of steak to use for kebabs?

Although higher quality (more expensive steaks), like filet mignon or tenderloin are usually best for grilling, the great thing about these steaks kebabs is that you can easily get away with using a more affordable cut of meat, since the meat is marinated! I usually use top sirloin, since it’s more affordable but still tastes amazing and is thick enough to get nice big cubes of meat.

How to make Steak Kebabs:
  • Make the marinade by combining the soy sauce, peach juice, oil, dried onion flakes, garlic and fresh ground black pepper. Whisk well to combine. Cut the steak into 1 inch pieces and add it to a gallon size resealable bag. Pour the marinade over the steak, seal the bag tight and refrigerate for 1 to 6 hours.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes. Thread the steak and chopped vegetables alternately onto the wooden skewers, keeping a little space between each piece.

  • Heat gas grill to medium-high and grease lightly with oil.  Grill the kebabs for just a few minutes on each side (8-10 minutes maximum), according to how well done you like your steak. Allow the kebabs to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Can I cook kebabs in the oven?

Although I think the flavor of steak kebabs is best when cooked on a gas grill, you can cook them in the oven, or on the stove top.

To cook kebabs in the oven, turn the oven to Broil, on High. Place the kebabs on the top oven rack and cook for about 8-15 minutes (depending on how well done you like your steak), rotating during cooking.

You could also cook them on the stove in a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the kebabs for several minutes, rotating once or twice, until cooked through.

Recipe Tips:

Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. This will the sticks from burning while the kebabs are cooking on the grill.

Use any veggies you like, and cut them big! I always include bell peppers and onions on my kebabs but you could also add mushrooms, zucchini, summer squash, or your favorite type of vegetable for grilling. Be sure to cut them into big pieces so they hold their own while the steak cooks.

Allow the steak to marinate. For a more flavorful steak kebab, marinate the steak for at least 1 hour, or up to 6 hours.

Notes

Make Ahead Instructions: The steak can marinate for up to 6 hours. The vegetables can be chopped ahead of time so all you have to do is assemble and grill!
Variations:
  • Vegetables: Use any veggies you like, and cut them big so they hold their own while the steak cooks.! I always include bell peppers and onions on my kabobs but you could also add mushrooms, zucchini, summer squash, or your favorite type of vegetable for grilling.
  • Cook in Oven: I think the flavor of steak kabobs is best when cooked on a gas grill, but to cook in the oven, turn oven to broil on high. Place kabobs on the top oven rack and cook for -15 minutes (depending on how well done you like your steak), rotating during cooking.
  • Cook in Grill Pan or Skillet: Heat on stove over medium-high heat. Cook kabobs for several minutes, rotating once or twice, until cooked through.
