Ingredients

Meat Marinade

  • 1 Pound cubed beef
  • ½ Cup olive oil
  • ¼ Cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 Tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ Cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

For the Vegetable Marinade and Kebabs

  • 1 Cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ Cup olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 Tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced ½-inch thick
  • 1 green pepper, sliced ½-inch thick
  • 1 zucchini. sliced ½-inch thick

Directions

Meat Marinade

Using a fork, pierce the beef cubes several times, taking care not to pierce the entire way through and place into a resealable gallon-size plastic bag. In a bowl, combine all of the olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, and garlic until well mixed. Pour over the meat in the bag.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight for best results.

For the Vegetable Marinade and Kebabs

In a bowl, whisk together all of the vinegar, oil, basil, oregano, and garlic powder. Place the tomatoes, onions, peppers, and zucchini in a plastic gallon-size resealable bag, and pour the marinade mixture over them. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight for best results.

Preheat the grill.
 
Stick the marinated meat and vegetables on wooden skewers, alternating between the two until each skewer is full. Place on the grill and cook until the meat is cooked to your liking.

 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
