Ingredients to make beef kabobs
Before you get started, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand:
- 1 lb flank steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp ginger, grated
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup mango chunks
- Salt and pepper to taste
Marinate the Beef
The key to tender and flavorful kabobs is all in the marinade. In a large bowl, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic. Add the cubed beef to the marinade and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible.
Prep the Fruit and Vegetables
While the beef is marinating, prep your fruits and veggies. Cut the onion and bell peppers into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Cut the pineapple and mango into chunks and set aside.
Skewer the Kabobs
Once the beef is done marinating, remove it from the fridge and begin assembling the kabobs. Thread the beef, onion, bell pepper, pineapple, and mango onto skewers, alternating the ingredients as you go.
Grill the beef Kabobs
Heat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the skewers onto the grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping occasionally, or until the beef is cooked to your desired level of doneness and the fruit and veggies are charred and tender.
Serve and Enjoy!
Once the kabobs are done, remove them from the grill and let them cool for a few minutes. Then, serve them up and enjoy! This recipe pairs well with a side of rice or quinoa, and a fresh green salad.
Tips and Tricks for making beef kabobs
- Soak your skewers in water for at least 30 minutes before assembling the kabobs. This will prevent them from burning on the grill.
- If you’re short on time, you can use pre-cut fruit from the grocery store instead of cutting your own.
- If you like your beef medium-rare, cook the kabobs for 8-10 minutes instead of 10-12.
