  • Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat (375 degrees F to 450 degrees F).

  • Thread beef on 4 skewers, leaving a little space between each piece. Put skewers on a baking sheet and sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Thread zucchini onto 4 skewers so slices can grill cut sides down, then transfer to baking sheet. Lightly brush beef and zucchini all over with oil.

  • Lightly oil grate and grill beef, covered with lid, turning once, about 4 minutes total for medium rare. Transfer to a serving platter and cover with foil to keep warm.

  • Lightly oil grate again and grill zucchini, covered with lid, turning once, until grill marks appear and zucchini is just tender, 4 to 5 minutes total. Transfer skewers to a serving platter. Drizzle beef and zucchini with about half of sauce, and serve remaining sauce on the side.

These were very very good. The sauce is so delicious. But I think the next time I make these I would marinate the meat as I just wished the flavour from the sauce had infused the meat. Read More

These were so good and so easy to make. They disappeared as soon as I put them on the table. I surprised my family with these for lunch. I added some other vegetables to the skewers like tomatoes and jalapenos. I only had thin strips of steak so I rolled them up after marinating them and then put them on the sticks. Excellent recipe thank you for sharing it with us. Read More

Made this this evening. I used Goya Mojo which I have used for years to marinate flank steak and eat as fajitas. Made two changes. I don t like zucchini so I used yellow squash. And I cooked about 4-5 mins per side for both meat and squash. Squash was crisp and tender and the meat was medium. I served with Mexican rice which I made in my instant pot. Read More

For once I did not change the original recipe. The sauce was delicious though a bit "limey" for my teenager. I did make chicken kabobs for the kids as they don't like steak. That may be why the lime was more pronounced. It was more mellow on the beef. Will make again and consider marinating depending on time. Read More

Very good! Easy to make not need a lot of prep time. And grilling veggies is always a hit with my 10 year old! Sauce. Ramped everything up a notch. Will make again. Was very good paired with Raspberry mojitos! Read More

Excellent recipe and very easy to make! We loved our dinner tonight! The flavors are perfectly balanced and really makes zucchini delicious as you dip it in the sauce (my husband does not care for zucchini and loved this). I chose to marinade the beef with half of the sauce for 45 min. - 1 hour which resulted in the meat soaking in the flavor and tender for being sirloin. When dipping the beef in the sauce there seemed to be too much lime coming through but that's soley from my obvious adjustment to the recipe. This recipe is so good though that I didn't even realize I forgot to add the salt and pepper before grilling and didn't bother to add any after! Served over plain steamed white rice. Looking forward to making this again! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I followed the recipe pretty closely except I marinated the meat for 2 hours. Everyone loved it but I think I ll marinate for less time when I make it again. I brushed the zucchini with sauce prior to grilling. I used fresh oregano because I grow it. Read More
