1 – 1½ lbs. (500 – 750g) sirloin steak, trimmed of fat
1 lg. onion, quartered
1 med. yellow pepper, seeded and ribs removed
1½ cups (350ml) garlic infused olive oil* (recipe in Extras section)
½ cup (125ml) dry red wine
2 rosemary sprigs or 1½ tsp. (7.5ml) dried
6 parsley sprigs or 1½ tsp. (7.5ml) dried
Freshly ground pepper to taste
10 – 16 cherry tomatoes
10 – 16 baby bella mushrooms, stems removed
Vegetable oil for grill
Cut beef into 1½ in. (3.8cm) pieces and then place into a plastic bag or bowl. Separate onion sections, add to meat. Slice yellow pepper into 1 in. (2.54cm) pieces and add to meat.
Add remaining ingredients, except tomatoes and mushrooms, to the meat mixture. Marinate 6 – 20 hours in fridge. Sirloin requires a long marinate to make it super tender. Filet, porterhouse, and rib eye work well in this recipe. Only marinate them for 3 – 4 hours as they are tender cuts.
Coat grill lightly with olive oil. Set grill to medium.
Thread steak and veggies onto skewers, e.g.: sirloin, onion, sirloin, yellow pepper, sirloin, tomato, sirloin, mushroom, and so on. Make sure all the pieces touch but aren’t jammed against one another. Discard remaining marinade.
Grill 10 – 15 minutes. Turn skewers frequently so meat cooks evenly.
No skewers? No problem.
Drain sirloin mixture in a colander. Heat a skillet on the grill or stove. Add beef mixture, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Sauté 10 – 15 minutes, stirring and turning frequently.
*If you use regular olive oil add 3 garlic cloves, pressed or chopped fine.
May you enjoy all the days of your life filled with good friends, laughter, and seated around a well-laden table!
