Grilled Steak Kabobs

This is a great recipe because it can be prepped ahead and frozen in the marinate.  To prep ahead, mix the marinate, cut the steak up into bite sized pieces, then freeze.    When you want to serve it, place it into the fridge to thaw then skewer and grill. 

soak skewers

Marinate meat

Alternate steak and vegetables on skewer


2 lbs Sirloin or Denver Steak
1 Red Onion, cut into bite sized pieces
1 Green Pepper, cut into bite sized pieces
Mushrooms (we omit because no one likes them)

 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
 1/2 cup white vinegar
 1/2 cup brown sugar
 1/4 cup diced onion
 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil 
2 teaspoons minced garlic 
1 teaspoon ground ginger or 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger

1/2 tsp pepper

Mix ingredients for marinate.  Cut steak into bite sized pieces and marinate for at least 30 minutes.  You can freeze the steak in the marinate and let it thaw in the fridge. Meanwhile soak skewers in ice water for 30 minutes. I use a 9 x 13 pan for this.  When meat has marinated, place onto skewers and alternate with other vegetables.  Grill for 4 to 6 minutes on each side.  

 This makes five very generous servings because I have teen boys.  You can cut the recipe in half.
