I can’t believe Memorial Day is right around the corner. Hello summer, hello grilling season.

Nothing says summer like grilling and what better thing to throw on the grill than some juicy steak kabobs.

In addition to tender top sirloin, I loaded these kabobs up with bell peppers, red onions, zucchini, and pineapple. It’s a summery meal on a stick – vegetables, fruit, and protein all in one. I love the sweet aspect the pineapple lends to the overall savoriness.

Beef is a top protein choice that not only tastes great but it’s also a source of strength to fuel you through your busy workday, your kid’s after-school sports practice, or your own spinning or yoga classes. Beef helps you be your best self and is a source of strength for your family. These Mexican Meatballs are always a family fave.

Beef fuels your day-to-day stamina because it’s a complete, high-quality protein food that contains all the essential amino acids the body needs to support physical activity and a strong, healthy life. The iron in beef, which is more easily absorbed than iron from plant sources, can help prevent fatigue, and the protein in beef contains the optimal mix of amino acids for building and repairing muscle.

People love beef’s rich flavor and thanks to it being a high-quality protein, lean beef is a smart choice for weight management because it helps you stay satisfied especially when it’s paired with healthy fruit and vegetables like in the kabobs.

People report feeling fuller longer after eating a meal that includes beef and research shows beef also can help maintaining lean muscle during weight loss. Visit www.BeefItsWhatsForDinner.com/nutrition for more recipe inspiration and education surrounding beef.

The kabobs are fast, easy, and with grilling I love that I don’t have to heat turn on my oven and heat up my house. I used my outdoor gas grill but you can make the kabobs on an indoor grill pan.

Cleanup is as easy as throwing away a few wooden skewers. Love that. The kabobs are perfect for your next backyard barbecue party or as an easy-peasy weeknight dinner.

Here’s a highlight reel showing some snippets from an average day of mine that require strength. Everything from running in Balboa Park to cleaning up my messy kitchen after many recipes and photo shoots to tackling my epic daily laundry pile to helping my preteen daughter clean her ever-messy room. I definitely need the right kind of fuel for strength for all that activity.

Ingredients:


  • about 8 metal skewers (or wooden skewers, soaked in water for 10 minutes)
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • about 1.5 pounds boneless top sirloin steak center cut, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red onion, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large zucchini, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • about 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning to taste, if desired
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, cilantro, or basil for garnishing; optional

Directions:


  1. To a large ziptop bag, add the soy sauce, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, pepper, steak, seal bag, and squish contents around to mix and evenly coat the steak. Place bag in the fridge to marinate for (at least) 15 minutes, or up to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat outdoor grill to medium heat; alternatively preheat an indoor grill pan..
  3. To a wooden skewer, add a piece of steak, pieces of peppers, onion, zucchini, pineapple, and repeat the ingredients until the skewer is full. Repeat with all remaining skewers.
  4. Add the kabobs to a lightly oiled grill, cover, and cook for about 7 minutes for medium rare (145F) and about 8 to 9 minutes for medium (160F) doneness. Turn kabobs occasionally. Exact cooking time will vary on the type of grill, the size, the heat level, how big the pieces of steak are on each kabob, etc. Cook until done to your personal preference.
  5. If desired, season with salt and pepper, and optionally garnish with fresh herbs. Let kabobs rest a few minutes prior to serving. Kabobs are best warm and fresh.
