Grilled Beef Skewers

Sharing is caring!

These easy Grilled Beef Skewers are perfect for a lunch or dinner idea when the weather is good! Marinaded in a tangy sesame sauce and delicious!

If you can marinate the meat the night before, or at least a few hours before you plan to barbecue, that is when you will get the most flavor. I used my Best Teriyaki Sauce Marinade for this recipe. Be sure to check out my time-saving tips after the recipe.

Hello Friends! How is your week going? We are enjoying the cool weather of the season and enjoying watching our sports. There is nothing like getting together with family and friends around the television to enjoy a good game or movie.

Today I am sharing a recipe for a basic beef marinade. You can use this for kebabs or stir fry. My mom used to make beef marinade quite a bit and this is her recipe with a few additions.

Meat thermometer –

Grill – We use a gas grill.

Skewers – You can use metal or wood skewers.  I use wood skewers and always soak them in water before using them. 

Chef’s Knife or Slicing Knife and Cutting Board

Container with a sealable lid or sealable plastic bag.

List of main ingredients:

Beef –I have found that top sirloin or tenderloin is the best for kebobs. Sometimes, these cuts can be pricey, so strip steak also works. 

Bell Peppers – I love to use a mixture of colors for a festive look, but the green variety is usually the least expensive.

Marinade – The marinade I used is very simple and the recipe is below.

I love serving kebobs with rice or salad. Other great side dishes for this meal are:

  • This easy fruit salad – which is colorful and healthy for a picnic or barbecue. This Summer salad recipe is a great way to add fresh summer fruits to your menu.
  • Dill Cold Pasta Salad  Cool, refreshing, and creamy and made with fresh seasonal vegetables and dill weed.
