Sirloin and Summer-Vegetable Kebabs with Chimichurri

When you have a craving for that smoky, charred flavor, fire up the coals and thread veggies, onion, and balsamic-vinegar-marinated beef onto skewers. Serve the grilled kebabs drizzled with zesty chimichurri, a thick fresh-herb sauce.

  • 1 pound beef sirloin tips (cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 small yellow summer squash
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Marinate beef sirloin tips in 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and freshly ground pepper in a shallow dish for 30 minutes. Soak 4 wooden skewers in water. Meanwhile, slice zucchini and summer squash into 1/2-inch rounds. Cut onion into wedges and red bell pepper into 1-inch pieces.

  2. Heat grill to medium-high. Thread beef onto skewers, alternating with vegetables. Grill for 7 to 8 minutes per side. Whisk together parsley, fresh oregano, garlic cloves, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh lemon juice, and coarse salt. Drizzle sauce over kebabs.

    thats not a real chimichurri sauce.

    Love it,love it! My son loves to eat his grilled veggies and use the chimichurri as his dipping sauce. We also made the strawberry-vanilla ice cream cake and this kebab on Father's Day for my husband. Both were a hit. Thanks Lucinda. I just saw the recorded show Thursday evening before Father's Day and just had time to gather all the ingredients for both. My 13- year- old son was so excited because he helped a lot in the preparation of both recipes.

    The chimichurri sauce is delightful.

    This is my new favorite beef kebab recipe! I added a little fresh garlic into the marinade too. The chimichurri over the top of the grilled kebabs is divine! Once again Lucinda's recipe delivers a home run--my family loved it!
