For the Beef Marinade

  • 1.5 - 2 pounds sirloin or teres major, cut into 1"- 1.5" cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup chopped red onion (about ¼ of an onion)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ lime juiced (½ tablespoon juiced)
  • 1 sprig rosemary (about 8" long)
  • ½ cup beer (lager or pale ale)

Easy Jalapeño Parsley Chimichurri:

  • ¼ cup parsley, finely diced (or processed in a food processor)
  • 1 jalapeño  very finely diced (or processed in a food processor), equivalent of 2 tablespoons
  • 1 large clove garlic, very finely diced (or processed in a food processor), ½ tablespoon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ lime juiced (½ tablespoon juiced)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Additional Vegetables for Skewers

  • 10 Cherry tomatoes (about 4 oz)
  • ½ Large red onion, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 Red bell pepper, cut into 1" cubes
  • 6 Cremini mushrooms (cut in half if they are large)


For the Marinade:

  • Trim steak and cut up into one inch cubes.
  • Place steak cubes and all marinade ingredients into a large gallon size seal-able bag. Mix together, and try to squeeze out excess air.
  • Place the bag in a large bowl, and into the refrigerator for 1 hour (no more than 2 hours).

Easy Jalapeño Parsley Chimichurri:

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl. Sprinkle over the top of skewers.
  • The chimichurri can be made up to three days in advance and kept in the fridge. Bring to room temperature before using.

For the Beef Skewers:

  • Soak wooden skewers for at least one hour prior to grilling. Prepare grill for direct cooking.
  • Place ingredients on the skewer. We add three pieces of meat and alternate the other ingredients (we like onions, mushrooms, and red bell peppers) in between the steak.
  • Place over direct heat and rotate every three minutes until the internal temperature of the beef reaches at least 124 degrees for rare, 135 degrees for medium rare.
  • While resting add the Chimichurri and then serve and enjoy!
