Instructions Checklist

  • Thinly slice steak with the grain into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Thread steak slices onto skewers and place in a flat plastic or glass container. Pour marinade over skewers. Cover container with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Flip skewers and continue marinating in the refrigerator, 1 1/2 to 2 hours more.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove skewers from marinade, discarding marinade.

  • Cook steak skewers on the preheated grill until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

If you are using thin wooden skewers, soak them for 20 to 30 minutes.

To get the maximum amount of juice, apply light pressure as you roll a room-temperature lemon on the counter before cutting it open.

Partially freezing the steak tends to make it much easier to slice.

The family wasn't too crazy over this recipe. I will admit that I made these indoors in a cast iron skillet so that could be the difference. Read More

LOVED these! Stick to the grilling time listed - the ones we grilled longer were still amazing but not as good as the ones that were only grilled 3 minutes each side. Read More
