On the Grill: Mojo Beef Kebabs

Print Friendly

Thick sirloin kebabs grilled on a skewer, marinated in a citrusy Mojo Sauce.

Mojo sauce is a classic combination of lime, garlic and oregano. It is also great with whole grilled steaks such as flank or top loin steaks. This recipe is from “The Healthy Beef Cookbook” (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.).

 

Mojo Beef Kebabs

Mojo Sauce
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt

Beef Kebabs
1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 large lime, cut into 8 wedges
1 medium onion, cut into 8 wedges
1 container grape or cherry tomatoes (about 10 ounces)

Place Mojo Sauce ingredients in small bowl. Set aside. Cut beef steak into 1 1/4 inch pieces; season with pepper.

Alternately thread beef with lime and onion wedges evenly onto four 12-inch metal skewers. Thread tomatoes evenly onto four 12-inch metal skewers.

Place kebabs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill tomato kebabs, uncovered, about 2 to 4 minutes or until slightly softened, turning occasionally. Grill beef kebabs, uncovered, about 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally.

Serve kebabs drizzled with sauce, accompanied by tomato skewers.
