Ready to turn up the heat on September? These spicy, flavorful skewers are guaranteed to make you believe that it takes some form of black magic to infuse so much taste into these tender cubes of beef.
I picked up a 3 pound package of sirloin steaks this week at Target and wanted to try something a little different than the typical “salt – pepper – grill” routine. So, I did a little browsing online and came across this recipe from AllRecipes.com. I modified the recipe by replacing the cayenne pepper with Frank’s Hot Sauce and also just substituted garlic olive oil for the beef boillion and water.
I’m not sure about the voodoo thing, but they are certainly spicy, delicious, and a great new addition to the standard rotation. We paired them with grilled snow peas and some organic brown rice. And, I know what you’re thinking…what about the kids? Nope. Not a chance. The Oldest had a spinach, snow pea, and strawberry salad with a side of brown rice. The Youngest had a few nibbles of hot dog, few nibbles of rice, and a giant mound of strawberries. Shhhh….don’t tell them what they’re missing…
Voodoo Sirloin Kabobs
Adapted from All Recipes
1 1/2 lb sirloin steak, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 medium onion, thickly sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
3 tsp Frank’s hot sauce
2 Tbsp garlic olive oil
3 cloves garlic, pressed
Whisk together salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic, and hot sauce to make the marinade. In a large, glass bowl, toss sirloin cubes with marinade until well coated. Refrigerate for a few hours…at least 2 or 3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Add sirloin cubes, onion slices, and tomatoes to skewers in an alternating pattern. Grill for 10 – 15 minutes, or until desired doneness, turning once halfway through.
