Summer Beef Skewers

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min.


8 servings

"The marinade that seasons these summery skewers has a robust flavor that friends and family love," relates Cheryl Arnold of Lake Zurich, Illinois. They're a breeze to marinate ahead of time, then assemble before grilling.


  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup red wine or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 pound cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 pound whole fresh mushrooms
  • 3 small zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 small yellow summer squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 pounds beef sirloin tip steak, cut into 1-1/4-inch cubes
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients and mix well. Pour 1 cup into a shallow dish; add vegetables. Pour remaining marinade into another shallow dish; add beef. Cover and refrigerate both for 4-6 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from beef. Drain and reserve marinade from vegetables. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread beef, tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and summer squash.
  3. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting for 8-10 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Serve kabobs over rice if desired.
