A delicious marinade of cilantro, orange juice and jerk seasoning provides incredible flavor to the sirloin steak in this beef skewer recipe. The kebabs are threaded with alternating pieces of onion, beef and orange wedges so there's a spicy-sweet kick in each bite.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Drain meat and vegetables, discarding marinade. On skewers, alternately thread beef, pepper pieces, onion wedges and orange wedges, leaving 1/4-inch space between pieces.

  • 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.
