Marinated Beef Kabobs

Marinated Beef Kabobs
The aroma of meat cooking on the grill, relaxing with my family, (furbabies included!), sipping on sweet tea...  Those are just a few of my favorite things about weekends.

I usually grill  burgers, chicken or hot dogs on the weekend.  Mainly because it's simple and fast.  This past weekend, I found some wonderful petite sirloin steaks and thought they would be perfect for some grilled kabobs.  Other than the time to marinate the meat, these kabobs are easy to make.
I'm sharing with you my Marinated Beef Kabobs, which are easy to prepare and gluten free.

Marinated Beef Kabobs


Ingredients:

1 - 1 1/2 lbs sirloin steak
1 large red onion
3 large bell peppers (one of each- red,                                                    yellow, orange)
12 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp Chicago Steak Seasoning, gluten free

Marinade for Beef:

1 Cup Ketchup, gluten free
3/4 Cup Sugar, granulated
3/4 Cup Tamari
1/3 Cup Olive Oil/Apple Cider Vinegar (equal                parts to make 1/3 cup)

Directions:

Combine marinade (for beef) in a medium bowl.   Cut meat into 2" cubes, and place in marinade.  I use a gallon size freezer bag, to marinade meat in.  Allow meat to marinade for 1-2 hours, in refrigerator.

Quick Tip for Easy Clean Up

While the meat is marinating, prepare your fresh produce.

You will need to make a simple coating for your produce, so they don't burn on the grill. It also helps enhance the flavor of your veggies!

 For this coating you will want to combine the olive oil and Chicago Steak Seasoning.  I use Weber's seasoning, because it is gluten free.  You can use any brand you like or make your own.  The seasoning is black pepper, sea salt, red pepper flakes and garlic.

Cut your red onions and peppers into 2" chunks, leave cherry tomatoes whole.  Drizzle or brush on seasoned olive oil on your red onion, peppers and tomatoes.  I like to place the veggies into separate quart size freezer bags once they are coated, to keep the flavor profiles separated.  Place bags in fridge to marinate for the rest of the time the meat is marinating or at least 15 minutes.

Preheat your grill, to 400°.  While grill is preheating, skewer your meat and veggies, alternating between bell peppers, onion, and meat.  Finish with a cherry tomato on top!
Gluten Free Marinated Beef Kabobs


I used stainless steel skewers.  If you use wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water, to prevent them from burning.  You can do this during the time the meat is marinating.

Place the marinated beef kabobs on the grill, turning often as they cook.  Cooking times will vary depending on your grill.  They usually take about 15 minutes to cook.

Serve with side of your choice.  I prepared white rice to go with the beef kabobs.  What side would you choose?  Would love to hear from you!

Until next time...

                   Enjoy Life!

                                Much Aloha,

                                            ~Jane

  13. I haven't made kabobs in awhile, and before I've always used chicken. But THIS sounds so good! Do you recommend any other cuts of meat other than sirloin? Just curious. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. I always use sirloin, you want a tender cut of meat so it melts in your mouth! I would ask your butcher if they could recommend another cut of beef that would work. Chicken is also a wonderful choice for kabobs, haven't tried it with this marinade, so not sure how it would taste.
