Tasty, well seasoned beef kabobs are made in the oven. Broiled just 3 minutes per side, they are ready fast – the ideal weeknight dinner.
These beef kabobs are so flavorful! The spice combination is amazing. Such a great solution for steak cuts that are just OK.
Can you make beef kabobs in the oven?
Absolutely! I use the broiler, and broil the kabobs for three minutes per side. So they are ready in just six minutes.
What cut of beef to use for oven beef kabobs?
I use sirloin steak in this recipe. It’s a flavorful cut of meat, and although it’s not as tender as tenderloin, it’s not very tough either. So there’s no need to marinate the beef. Sirloin is a tender enough cut that you can simply cube the steak, mix it with the spiced olive oil, thread on skewers and broil.
While I wouldn’t dream of turning a fatty, juicy ribeye steak into kabobs, I find that sirloin is a bit on the lean side for my taste. So when sirloin steaks are on sale and I do buy them, I often turn them into these well-seasoned, flavorful beef kabobs.
Is this a healthy recipe?
I believe it is. Research shows that fresh red meat (unlike processed and cured meat) is very nutritious.
However, I definitely recommend that you serve these kabobs with a side of vegetables, to round out the meal. A few of my favorite side dishes to serve with this dish are tomato asparagus salad, grilled broccolini, and creamy cucumber salad.
Topping these beef kabobs with homemade tahini sauce is another tasty and healthy option.
What about leftovers?
You can keep leftovers of this oven beef kabobs recipe in the fridge, in a sealed container, for 3-4 days. Reheat them gently, in the microwave on 50% power.
