Grilled Steak  Kabobs are that perfect summer meal for those perfect summer days. This quick and easy meal is a decadent delight for your grill. 

This post is sponsored by The Beef Checkoff.  As always, all opinions are my own.

Summer, to me, is about the memories that filter into your mind as you reminisce about your favorite days. The warm sun on your face, the great times and laughter with friends and family and the smells coming from the grill. It makes my mouth water just thinking of the meals produced on that grill. One of the best meals ever are these Grilled Steak Kabobs.

And, I have some exciting news!  I’ve partnered with  The Beef Checkoff to host a giveaway for a Weber Q 1400 grill!  You can find out how to enter below.

Why these Grilled Steak Kabobs are one of my Favorites.

The simplicity of these Grilled Steak Kabobs combined with the fact that they always come out fabulous are key.  Also, these steak kabobs are a complete meal on one little skewer. How could it not be one of my favorite meals?

Steak Kabobs are such a crowd pleaser too. In that case, pre-assemble and have ready for your next get together.

The Best Beef for this Recipe

I’ve made this recipe many times and have used several different cuts of steak.  My favorite, by far, is sirloin steak.  I love the marbling and flavor that sirloin has.

I’ve also used ribeye steaks and even a leftover filet.  If you want a more economical option, you could even use flank steak.

Just one 3 ounce serving of beef has roughly 50% of your Daily Value of protein.  Plus, it’s a good source of Vitamin B12, zinc and iron that helps with everything from energy, metabolism and your immune system.  It’s a real nutrition powerhouse!

Tips for Cooking the Best Grilled Steak Kabobs

There are a few things that you can do to improve your grilled steak experience:

  • Take meat out of the refrigerator to warm up before grilling, not long, about 20 minutes. It will cook more evenly.
  • Always preheat your grill.
  • Keep a little room between ingredients on the skewer. It helps with heat circulation and more even cooking.
  • Make your vegetables around the same size so they all get done at the same time. Alternatively, par bake the larger ingredients, like we do in this recipe for the potatoes.
  • Invest in a meat thermometer, Unless you’re a professional, it can be difficult to judge when the meat is done. The thermometer will take the guess work out of it for you.
  • Let your meat rest for a few minutes after cooking for all those juices to return to the meat!

Can I make these Steak Kabobs in the Oven?

We do not have a long summer season or sometimes our outdoor grilling plans get cancelled due to rain. Consequently, you can make these Grilled Steak Kabobs indoors.

Stores have some great indoor grills options now or you can use a grill pan or broil pan and make them in your oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Turning, at least once.

Expert Tips for Making the Best Grilled Steak Kabobs

  • Don’t skip the marinade: Steak on its own is phenomenal but this marinade will elevate it to the next level.
  • Mix up your kabobs: You don’t need to use any set vegetables. Use what you like. Zucchini, Squash, or Corn on the Cob (par cooked) are great. Have your kids build their own.
