I think it’s safe to say that we’re officially into grilling season, or at least it will be very soon. Seriously one of my favorite times of the year! Not only because grilled food just tastes ahhhhhh-mazing, but because my husband is the grill-master, which means I’m off the hook for at least the entree part of dinner. Lol, since I cook for a living, you’d think I would want to cook all. the. time., but you know, sometimes a Mom just needs a break right?
When it comes to grilling, I love making up kebabs. Not only are they pretty to look at, they’re an easy way to grill everything at once, and food on a stick (or skewer) is basically the best ever!
You know when you go to a great steakhouse, and your steak is just literally bursting with flavor? That’s where my inspiration came from for the marinade for these kebabs. It’s full of savory flavors like soy, balsamic, Worcestershire, garlic, and dijon, mixed with a bit of sweet brown sugar to balance it out. Even if you don’t want to make the kebabs, you could definitely use this marinade for a great grilled or seared steak!
To really compound on the marinade flavor, I also marinated the baby Bella mushrooms in the same marinade, and they absorb it SO well. Each bite is just flavor-packed!!
As far as what to skewer alongside the steak and mushrooms, you can do just about anything you’d like. I love sweet red onion and I thought the vibrant green color of the bell pepper just made these look gorgeous.
I like to keep things light and serve these kebabs with a side salad and maybe some crusty bread, but of course, feel free to go in a different direction… it’s your meal 🙂
You can also use any type of steak that you prefer, just make sure you don’t use a cut of beef that’s meant for slow roasting. I used a couple of strip steaks I had in my freezer.
So uncover that grill and make sure you have plenty of gas or charcoal, because these Grilled Steakhouse Kebabs are great for any weeknight or backyard BBQ!
- Circle Kebab Skewers – I love this fun circle shape, which makes them fit on a standard round plate!
- Meat Thermometer – Never guess how “done” the meat is again!

If changing the recipe serving quantity, the recipe plugin will change the ingredient values for you, but it does NOT change the written instructions, those are manually added and not subject to a slider/button. You will have to extrapolate that multiplication to any amounts listed in the instructions.
For example: if an ingredient calls for 4 cups, and you doubled the recipe, it will automatically change to 8 cups. In the instructions, if I say “use 4 cups of cheese”, you will have to realize that since you doubled it, you use 8 cups, not 4
