These Garlic Steak Kabobs with a Creamy Cilantro Sauce are my favorite Summer family dinner. Beef filet is cut into chunks and then marinated with a delicious garlicy sauce. Skewered and grilled with onion and red pepper, they are tender, flavorful, and utterly mouthwatering. Then, drizzle with or dip into a cool and bright Creamy Cilantro Sauce for the perfect bite! #beefkabobs #steakkabobs #kabobideas #summerfood #grillingrecipes
If needed, cut your petit beef filets into 2 inch cubes and place into a large gallon storage bag or container to marinade. Mince the garlic. Add all of the ingredients for the marinade and then rub them all over the beef cubes. Seal the bag or container and place in the fridge until ready to grill (up to 4 days in advance).
Cut the onion in half, then quarters. Cut the red pepper into similar size pieces discarding the seeds and the stem. Store in the fridge until ready to skewer.
Make the Cilantro Cream Sauce by adding all ingredients to the blender. Pulse to get things started and then puree until smooth. Store in the fridge.
Before skewering, I like to split the ingredients into the # of skewers I plan to make. So, if I am making 4 skewers, then split the beef cubes into 4 portions. Same for the onion and the red pepper. This way you don't end up with one skewer with very little.
To make the skewers, simply alternate the red pepper, a couple layers of the onion, then the beef. Repeat until you use up the portioned out ingredients for that skewer. If you want, you can brush additional oil on the skewers, but since you had oil in the marinade, I find that I don't need any additional for the onion and red pepper.
Preheat your grill to high. These don't take much time at all to cook to medium. Place on the grill for about 4-5 minutes, then flip the skewers over and grill the other side for another 4-5 minutes. (4 minutes on each side will get you to a medium-rare and 5 minutes to a medium.)
Serve with the cilantro sauce and enjoy!
I say 4 servings for this recipe, but you should be able to get about 16 cubes of beef out of a pound. So, depending on what else you are serving and the size eaters you have, that could be 4-6 servings.
