Sirloin Tip Steak Kebabs
This is a flavorful marinade that can also be used to marinate other beef dishes such as grilled flank steak.
As an alternative to the mushrooms and onions, zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, grape tomatoes, or peach or pineapple chunks could be used for variety.
Serves: Serves 4-6
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 4 medium cloves)
- 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin tips, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes (have a clean plastic ruler)
- 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, cleaned and halved (unless they’re really small, keep those whole)
- 1 large sweet onion such as Maui, Texas Sweets, Vidalia Sweets, or Walla Walla Sweets sliced into 1 1/2-inch cubes (about 3 onion layers each)
You can use metal or bamboo skewers. Flat skewers work better to keep foods in place. If you are using bamboo, soak the bamboo skewers in water at least one hour.
Stir together oil, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, brown sugar, and pepper in a small bowl or glass jar. (This step can be done 3 days ahead, placed in a glass container and refrigerated until needed).
Place beef chunks and mushrooms in a gallon resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over the beef and mushrooms then seal the bag while pressing out excess air and massage the marinade over steak. Transfer to refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 5 hours.
Thread beef onto skewers, alternating with mushrooms and onions. Pack the skewer so that everything touches but not too tightly.
Prepare your grill by cleaning and oiling the grilling grate. Either light a charcoal fire or turn on the grill.
Get your grill to a medium-high heat. Here is how you tell if it is at medium-high heat: Hold your hand four to five inches above the cooking grate and count how many seconds you can keep it there before pulling away. If you can only hold it there about 4 to 5 seconds your grill is ready. Or set your gas grill to be 375 to 450 °F.
Grill the skewers until beef is well seared on all sides and center of beef registers between 125-130°F for rare 140-145°F for medium on digital thermometer, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer skewers to platter.
