There’s no better way to break in the grill after a long winter than with these Grilled Steak Kabobs! It’s an easy meal that’s full of flavor and sure to be enjoyed! These are out-of-this-world delicious, thanks in large part to Mazola® Corn Oil! Mazola has a high smoke point (450˚ F), so it’s great for grilling and stir frying at high temperatures. A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com.
Have you dusted off your BBQ grill yet? We actually just bought a new gas grill because our other one went out last year. I always look forward to the warmer weather when we can get outside and throw some skewers on the grill while the kids play. I love grilling, too, because my kitchen can stay clean while the cooking happens outdoors.
Mazola is a big part of our grilling season! I love that it’s a heart-healthy* cooking oil and creates marinades that yield amazing food. It has a neutral taste that lets the natural flavor of the food really stand out.
I’m always looking for ways to make my food better for me and my family. Which is why I love incorporating Mazola Corn Oil into my recipes! Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is smart heart-heathy choice for your family. I use it regularly in my baked goods, for grilling, sautéing, stir frying, and in my dressings and marinades. It’s such a versatile ingredient! My family agreed that these Steak Kabobs are one of the best meals ever to come off the grill at our house! Tender, juicy pieces of steak, bell pepper and purple onion are stacked on a skewer, then grilled to absolute perfection! But the incredible taste all starts with a perfect marinade! Mazola is a key player in today’s incredible recipe! Marinating really takes the flavor to the next level of delicious! Be sure to leave enough time for this step. This is a simple summer recipe that will become a go-to for busy evenings! I love that it looks super fancy, yet is totally fuss-free! I know you’re going to be crazy for it! Here’s how to put the skewers together:
Grilled Steak Kabobs
- 1/4 c. Mazola Corn Oil
- 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- 2 tsp. dried oregano
- 3/4 tsp. black pepper
- 2 tsp. hot sauce we like Sriracha
- 2 to 2 1/2 lbs steak I used top round roast
- Kabob Layers:
- 1 purple onion sliced into large pieces and broken apart
- 1 red 1 yellow, and 1 orange bell pepper, sliced into large pieces
- 12-15 skewers
- Start by preparing the marinade. Dice your steak into about 1 1/2" pieces, then place the pieces in a resealable plastic bag. Add Mazola Corn Oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, basil, oregano, black pepper, and hot sauce to the bag, seal it and shake it around to mix and coat the meat well. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 6 hours (12 is preferred), but no more than 24 hours.
- Dice a red, yellow and orange bell pepper, and a purple onion into large pieces.
- Soak your skewers in water for at least 1 hour if you're using wooden skewers (more time is better). This will prevent them from charring.
- Layer steak pieces, diced bell peppers and onions on the skewers. I put 4 pieces of meat on each one and added bell pepper and onion pieces in between. Set the grill to medium-high heat (about 425 degrees Fahrenheit) and grill for 4 to 5 minutes on the first side. Then flip the skewers (you may need to use a metal spatula to do this) and grill for 4-6 minutes on the other side. Use a temperature gauge to ensure that the meat is cooked to a safe temperature. For medium steak, the internal temperature should be 155 degrees Fahrenheit and well done steak should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Serve with rice, if desired.
I’m looking forward to a full summer of grilling! Do you love to grill too? I hope you enjoy these!
