I found this Alton Brown recipe online at Food Network. It sounded easy to make and perfect for serving dinner guests. I let the meat marinate for a little over 6 hours and it turned out delicious and so flavorful. We all, adults and children included, loved these kebabs. Kudos to my husband who grilled them to perfection!
How to Make Spicy Steak KebabsAdapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Alton Brown – Food Network
- 1 1/2 lbs of chuck or sirloin steak, cut into cubes
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup of olive oil
- Skewers (soak wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes)
- Bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
- Red onion, cut into bite-sized pieces
- Baby mushrooms
- Zucchini, cut into bite-sized pieces
Cut the beef into like size cubes and place it into a large zip lock bag.
Add the garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, pepper, and red wine vinegar together in a food processor. With the processor running drizzle in the olive oil. Pour the marinade over the meat and mix well to coat the meat evenly. Place into the refrigerator and let the meat marinate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Slice up the bell pepper, red onion, and zucchini. Toss the veggies, including the mushrooms, into a large bowl. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Toss to coat evenly.
Thread the skewers with the meat and vegetables, leaving a bit of space in between each piece.
