If you like fajitas, you'll love these kebabs flavored with cumin, cilantro, garlic, and lime marinade. Serve over rice with tortillas, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream for condiments. Plan ahead for marination time. The marinade also works well for chicken.
"These beefy skewers feed a crowd and make cooking fajitas easy since the vegetables and beef cook together. I served them with tortillas, guacamole, salsa and a crunchy slaw." —Danielle Centoni
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, more to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium serrano chile pepper, sliced into thin rings, optional
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 large green or yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 medium sweet onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
2 pounds London broil, cut into 1-inch chunks
Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a large zip-top bag, combine the oil, lime juice, cilantro, vinegar, oregano, cumin, garlic, chile pepper, if using. Massage the ingredients in the bag to combine. Alternatively, use a medium bowl.
Add the bell peppers, onion, and steak to the bag. Massage to coat all the ingredients. Squeeze out the air in the bag, seal, and refrigerate at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
Soak wooden bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to assembling the kebabs. Alternatively, use metal skewers to skip soaking.
Prepare a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat (350 F to 375 F).
To assemble kebabs, thread 2 skewers through the beef and vegetables, beginning with the beef and alternating with the vegetables. The double skewers will make the kebabs easier to turn on the grill. Discard the marinade.
Grill kebabs turning frequently, until the beef is medium-rare (130F to 140F), 10 to 15 minutes.
Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and serve.
- If using wooden skewers, we recommend soaking them for about 30 minutes to 1 hour before grilling. Soaking your skewers can prevent them from catching on fire, which ultimately leads to all your meat and veggies falling to the bottom of the grill.
- For soaking, you can use wine as an alternative to the water, which will give your meat and vegetables another flavor element.
- An alternative to soaking skewers would be to use stainless steel or metal skewers. They do not require any soaking and can be reused.
