These skewers are quick and easy to make and taste terrific. With tender top sirloin, you don't need to marinate a long time to tenderize the meat, just long enough to impart the flavors of the citrus and garlic marinade. Serve over rice.

I doubled the amount of garlic right away. While these were marinating I made myself a margarita. My son and husband loved the skewers daughter didn't care for them and I loved my margarita a lot more I'm afraid. I found the meat to be too sweet and needed an extra shake of garlic salt once they were done. I would've given it 3 stars but like I said my boys loved it. Read More

We made the minor tweaks mentioned by previous reviewers - increased the garlic added pepper and red pepper flakes omitted the sugar added lime juice and lime zest and soaked the skewers in the margarita mix. We also used top sirloin. However family members felt the lime taste didn't fit with the beef. Sorry - not a keeper. Read More

Fantastic recipe - the steak really picked up the flavor of the marinade. I soaked the bamboo skewers for 30 minutes in the marinade as well prior to threading them. Read More

I followed the recipe except for the peppers. The marinade gave the meat a nice limey flavor. This was a welcome change from more traditional grilling marinades. I will definately make these again. Read More

Easy & tasty! I also skipped the peppers in this recipe only because I'm the only one that likes them and I marinated them overnight. Read More

The first time I tried this I followed the recipe exactly and it was OK. The second time I tweaked it to my tastes and it was very good. I omitted the sugar minced 8 large garlic cloves added a pinch of black pepper and a tablespoon of red pepper flakes then marinated it at room temp for 2 hours. Delicious! Read More

My family really liked this meat. It was very easy to make and I liked that it didn't have to marinate for hours or days. Thanks! Read More

Yummy but I'd add a decent amount of lime juice to make sure it has that lime flavor. Read More

I've been using nearly this same exact recipe for YEARS to make my margarita chicken wings but I always add a quarter cup of high end tequila to it. Really helps the marinade penetrate and all the alcohol burns away during cooking. Also if you peel some lime into the marinade its extra limey. All in what you like. Read More
