Easy Marinated Beef Kabobs

Steak options

Sirloin it is the cheapest cut for a kebab. This is your all-purpose meat and will be a great choice. For the most tender option possible, we recommend choosing a Filet mignon (Also known as fillet steak). These are my favourites. They will be super tender every time, even if you accidentally overcook them.

Other alternatives are New York Strip AND Ribeye. However, if you use ribeye, watch out for any large pieces of fat in your morsels.

Alternative to the grill

Although beef skewers are traditionally grilled, you can also prepare them on the stovetop using a grill pan or heavy skillet. Just like the grill, you will preheat the pan over high heat. Grill skewers in pan over high heat until meat reaches desired doneness, rotating every few minutes. Be careful not to crowd the pan.


You can use metal or bamboo skewers. If you plan to use bamboo, be sure to soak it in water for at least 30 minutes before using. If you use metal, be cautious and always use tongs or heat shields when handling them.

Make it a freezer meal

You can make a freezer meal with the skewers so they are ready on the go. Simply prepare the meat and freeze it in the marinade in a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag. When you're ready to make the skewers, remove the frozen bag from the freezer and place it on a plate in the refrigerator overnight until it thaws.

Instructions for storage and heating

Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days after removing the meat from the sticks.
