Equipment

  • eight wooden or metal skewers

Ingredients
  

  • 2 top sirloin steaks
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into 1" squares
  • 1 red onion cut into 1" squares
  • 8 button mushrooms ends removed
  • 16 cherry tomatoes

Cilantro Sauce

  • 1 bunch cilantro stems removed
  • 1 bunch parsley stems removed
  • red chillies optional
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup olive oil + more as needed
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine the steak marinade ingredients and stir to combine. Add in the cubed steak and toss it in the marinade to ensure it is well coated. Transfer the beef to a plastic bag (or leave it in the bowl) and place it in the fridge for 1 hour (up to 8 hours) to marinade.
  • While the beef is marinating, prepare the cilantro sauce. Add the ingredients to a blender and puree on high until smooth. You are looking for a rich, creamy consistency. If your sauce is too oily, add some more cilantro/parsley, if it is too thick simply thin it with a little olive oil. Season with added vinegar and sea salt to taste, and set aside.
  • Once the beef has marinated, begin assembling the skewers, alternating between beef and vegetables. There should be enough ingredients to create 8 skewers, with 4 pieces of beef per skewer, 1 mushroom, 2 cherry tomatoes, bell pepper and red onion.
  • Heat the grill or BBQ to a medium-high heat, about 450°F, and add skewers to the grill for 8-10 minutes turning half way through.
  • Once cooked, remove steak kabobs from the skill and allow to rest 5 minutes before serving to ensure the juices don’t run when sliced.
  • Serve warm with cilantro sauce and enjoy!

Notes

If you are using wooden skewers you will need to soak them ahead of time. Soaking them helps to ensure that they do not burn on the grill. Simply toss them in cold water for about 30 minutes.
