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.

    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.

    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!
