Ingredients for Hawaiian Beef Kabobs
- boneless top sirloin steak cut into bite size pieces
- soy sauce
- garlic powder
- olive oil
- bell peppers
- red onions
- pineapple chunks
- Any other veggies you like (cherry tomatoes would be nice)
How to make beef kabobs:
- Combine steak, soy sauce and garlic powder in a large zip-top bag. Seal and marinate steak for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Turn once about half way through.
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Once you have marinated the meat, remove the steak from marinade and discard marinade.
- Place green peppers or red peppers and onions in a large bowl and then toss with olive oil.
- Alternately thread beef, onion, peppers, and pineapple onto metal, bamboo, or wooden skewers; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Place your Hawaiian steak kabobs on a grill rack rubbed with olive oil. Grill 6-8 minutes per side or to desired doneness.
How long to grill beef kabobs:
When you get the hankering for Hawaii (oh I mean Hawaiian beef kabobs), grill them over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the steak is to your desired doneness. 135°F for medium-rare, 145°F for medium or 150°F for medium-well.
How to cook beef kabobs in the oven:
If you don’t have a grill or you don't want to stand out in the freezing cold to grill, you can also make these kabobs in the oven!
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Place the kabobs on a parchment or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Don't feel like making them into kabobs, just toss the meat, veggies and pineapple on prepared baking sheet and continue with the following directions.
- Cook them for 20-30 minutes, turning halfway through, or until desired doneness (135°F for medium-rare, 145°F for medium, 150°F for medium-well).
- Give them a quick broil for 2-4 minutes per side to seal in the juices and crisp the outsides of the beef if you'd like. If you decide to broil go ahead and undercook the kabobs a bit when baking so the meat doesn't overcook and get tough.
