    Sounds and looks yummy. How about adding mushrooms? How many and what kind – baby bellas or button? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      July 21, 2018

      Oh that’s a great idea. I would add a couple on each skewer. Nothing to small. Baby bellas or button should work great. Reply

    how about instead of cucumbers, use bacon wedges instead, bacon, onions and steak is the meal of champions Reply

    Can I make the marinade a few days ahead as we will be making these in the mountains? Reply

      Hi Lori I haven’t tried making it days in advance, usually a day or two is fine. If you experiment and have it longer, please let me know how you like it. Reply

    Hello Natasha,
    I tried this recipe it was pretty good, my only change for the next time I make it is to reduce the marinade time to perhaps an hour or two. I thought the overnight marinade overpowered the beef flavor. My wife on the other hand liked it fine.
    Thanks for all you do! Reply

      HI Joaquin, an hour or two should still work for this recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    Can these be prepared in an oven rather than on a bbq grill? If so, what temp/time would you recommend? Reply

      Hello Vincent, I havenโ€™t tried roasting but I think that could work. I canโ€™t give you specific bake times โ€“ you might do some googling for roasted steak kabobs. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    I’m working full time and I only have the time to cook during day offs. Can I marinade this and freeze? Reply

    Hi Natasha the meat looks so good I have to try it. Most of my meat I would marinate in wine. Reply

    I’m hosting guys night in a couple of weeks and considering making this. How many adult men would you think this will feed? I’m expecting around 10-15 guys?

    Thanks!

      Hi Travis, this makes eight 12-inch skewers so I would probably do 1 1/2 times the recipe to feed 10 and do 2 times the recipe for 15. Reply

  • Lesya Alice Pidhayny

    The recipe sounds excellent. I plamN on trying it soon! I do have a question as to the type of meat to be used. Could one use a strip steak for the kabobs? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      August 12, 2017

      Hi Lesya, I do think that would work since it is a fairly tender cut of beef ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    Natasha, if I were to bring these to someone (e.g. a family with a new baby), what would you suggest the reheating instructions should be? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      August 12, 2017

      Hi Marta, you could reheat them on a skillet (remove from the skewer first) or place the whole skewer in the oven and heat until warm. Reply

  • Nikole

    Can you use roast instead of sirloin for this recipe, if not how about stew meat? I can’t wait to try but this is the only beef I have at the moment. Thanks! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      August 11, 2017

      Hi Nikole, I think Stew meat should work – Stew meat is generally different cuts of meat mixed together. I haven’t tried roasting but I think that could work. I can’t give you specific bake times – you might do some googling for roasted steak kabobs. We always put ours on the grill because we love the smokiness the grill adds ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    • August 11, 2017

      Agree with Natasha, roasts and stew meat are generally tougher cuts of meat that need the long slow cooking to get them tender. The vinegar in this recipes does tenderize, however it would probably be best to hit roast or stew meat with a needle tenderizer first to get the marinade deeper into the meat. I look forward to seeing what your results are. Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    It is nice to have a sister. Specially if she is as talented as yours.Sveta’s recipe is the summer recipe and summer gives you permission to stop trying so hard. Just relax and enjoy the taste. My favorite line from your post is “Marinating the steak overnight turns this into a make-ahead recipe and the flavors are irresistible!”Thank you for this recipe. It is MUST TRY (and enjoy).
    P.S. The pictures are spectacular! Reply
