Succulent Beef Skewers Recipe

Agnes Ward, of Stratford, Ontario says, “These are no ordinary beef kabobs! They’re herb-infused and need to marinate at least an hour or overnight for the best flavor. If you feel like splurging, this recipe’s also fantastic with beef tenderloin.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients; add beef; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Thread beef onto six metal or soaked wooden skewers. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Grill steak, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-10 minutes or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), turning occasionally. Yield: 6 skewers.

"This was fantastic! I was looking for something besides the lemon/soy/garlic/mustard marinade that so many of us use for steak. Splurge for the fresh herbs, go heavy on them and only use 1 clove of garlic. This was beautiful and not too salty for BBQ beef kebabs. Made 4 large meat kebabs - feeds 4-6."

"You must try this one - it is a terrific marinade. IF you have leftovers, there will be an argument about who gets them. I used about 2 T. brown sugar just because...."

"This is a family favorite. I use it for not only kabobs, but also flank steaks and london broil. It's truly succulent and requested again and again."
