BBQ Beef Skewers

  • 3 - 4 lbs beef top sirloin, in 1” cubes
  • Red onions, red or orange peppers, zucchini also in 1” – 2” chunks
  • About 20 mushrooms

Start by cubing the beef. Place it in a bowl deep enough to allow turning easily without spillage.

Season with:

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chili oil
  • 2 – 4 tbsp sambal oelek – depending on how hot you like it
  • A couple of spoonfuls of sesame seeds (optional)

Allow to marinade several hours, ideally over night. When you’re almost ready to put them together, soak approximately 2 dozen bamboo skewers in warm water for an hour or so.

Now you’re ready to construct. On each skewer, start with a piece of pepper, some onion and a meat cube. Next use a piece of zucchini and another meat cube. Next some onion, then pepper then another meat cube and top with a mushroom. Because of the length of the skewers I used and the size of my chunks (okay, so I didn’t exactly measure them!!!) I found that that combination pretty well filled up my skewer. Repeat till you’re finished your meat. You can do your distribution any way you like really, I just like the peppers throughout and the mushroom on the end kind of “finishes” it for me.
