Father’s Day Grilling: Steak Kebabs


This is the perfect easy recipe for Father’s day- simple but with bold flavors. We like to set these up so that everyone can make their own skewers—put out plates with each ingredient cut up, and let each member of the family assemble their own kebab! That way everyone gets exactly what they want. Then sit back and relax while Dad man’s the grill!

Steak Kebabs Recipe

Yield: 4 servings


  • 12       skewers, soaked
  • 4          cloves garlic, minced
  • 5          sprigs rosemary, leaves only, chopped
  • 5          sprigs thyme, leaves only, chopped
  • 2          teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ¼         teaspoon chili flake
  • ½        cup olive oil, divided
  • 1½      pounds sirloin, cut into 2 inch cubes
  • 2          zucchini, cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • 1          bell pepper, cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • 1          Spanish onion, cut 4 wedges and each wedge cut crosswise into thirds
  •             kosher salt
  •             black pepper

Soak the skewers in water.

Mince the garlic and chop the rosemary and thyme as finely as possible. Combine the minced garlic, chopped herbs, balsamic vinegar, chili flake, and ¼ cup olive oil in a Ziploc bag. Cut up the sirloin and add it to the bag. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to 12 hours.

Meanwhile, cut up the vegetables. Drizzle them with remaining olive oil and season with kosher salt and pepper.

Preheat the grill to high.

Assemble kebabs with a mixture of steak and vegetables. Place on grill and cook until charred on the outside and medium-rare on the inside, about 3-4 minutes per side for a total of 12-16 minutes.

Remove from the grill and let rest, loosely covered in tin foil for 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite side dishes.
