Grilled beef kabobs

I have a confession when Heather told me that she bought firewire skewers I laughed at her.  I told her why would you buy more gimicky kitchen #%@$)**( that we obviously have no room for and wow like we ever freaking use skewers.  This to me was just another stupid thing that was going to end up stabbing me when I stuck my hand in the unknown drawer where kitchen gadgets go to die (bad enough I have to worry about 4 old knives in this stupid drawer).

In typical Jeff fashion I run my mouth and end up having to eat those stupid words and admit yeah I was a little harsh but she is use to it so it is expected.

So in case you care yes firewire skewers are probably the best creation for kettle grillers or grillers in general.  They are awesome bendable skewers that you can wrap around the inside of the kettle grill giving you more precious room to cram more meat on the grill (no they are not paying us, giving us anything free, or anything at all and in exchange for nothing they get free publicity for all 5 readers).

So now that my apology is done with and my sales pitch over this is really a good and simple straightforward beef kabob recipe.  The wonderful thing about this recipe is a lot of acid so going to tenderize the heck out of the cheapest cut of steak you can find so grab for that top sirloin that is 99 cents a pound.

For this recipe you will need:

  1. Couple lbs of top sirloin or some cheap cut of steak (lot of acid in this dish which helps tenderize it). Cut the steak into a couple inch cubes.
  2. 1/2 c vegetable oil
  3. 1/2 cup soy sauce
  4. 1/2 cup lemon juice
  5. 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
  6. 1/4 cup stone ground mustard
  7. 2 t cracked black pepper
  8. 4 big ole cloves garlic, minced
  9. 1 shallot diced (It was a LARGE one…)
  10. 1 t cayenne pepper (I just took one from the garden and sliced it up thin.)
  11. 1/2 teaspoon coriander

Combine everything and let it set overnight.  Fire up your grill and grill away.

Not that freaking hard is it?

Oh yeah here is a marinade picture of the dish because apparently I had shaky hand syndrome when trying to take action pictures of the meat on the grill.

    Um… I didn’t actually SEE an apology. Do you guys see an apology?

    I am you admitted you ran your mouth – but did you ACTUALLY apologize…

    No. No you did not.

    We were at friends for grilled chicken tonight and they gave me the recipe for the marinade, almost exactly like yours minus the coriander. It was fantastic! Great post.
