  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 small green sweet peppers, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 8 (8- to 10-inch) skewers (see Tip)
  • 2 medium oranges, cut into 8 wedges each


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. For marinade, in a medium bowl, whisk together cilantro, vinegar, orange juice, oil, garlic and jerk seasoning. Pour mixture into a large resealable plastic bag set in a deep bowl. Add beef, pepper pieces and onion wedges. Seal bag; turn to coat meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain meat and vegetables, discarding marinade. On skewers, alternately thread beef, pepper pieces, onion wedges and orange wedges, leaving ¼-inch space between pieces.
  3. For a charcoal grill, place kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef pieces are slightly pink in the centers, turning occasionally. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place kabobs on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  • Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water to cover for at least 30 minutes before using.
