Citrus Beef Skewers

Citrus Beef Skewers (3 of 4)

With summer quickly approaching, I have been searching for recipes for Chad to test out on the grill each weekend. When our CSA included grapefruit, cherry tomatoes, and bell peppers, it seemed the perfect time to try these Citrus Beef Skewers out. The marinade includes olive oil, white wine, garlic, grapefruit juice, and thyme. I loved this combination of flavors, especially paired with the grilled vegetables.citrus beef skewers

Evan enjoyed the meat, but wouldn’t really eat the vegetables. He kept going for the bell peppers, but didn’t like the taste. He just had fun squishing the tomatoes. Citrus Beef Skewers (4 of 4)

Citrus Beef Skewers

Prep Time: 3 hours, 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

4-6 servings

Citrus Beef Skewers


2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup dry white wine

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 grapefruit, juiced (1/2 cup)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1 pound boneless sirloin

1/2 red onion, cut into 1 inch squares

2 bell peppers, cut into 1 inch squares

12 ounces cherry tomatoes

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, wine, garlic, grapefruit juice, and thyme.

Cut the beef into 1 inch cubes and place in large plastic bag or baking dish. Add 1/2 of the marinade, tossing to coat all the beef. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Cover and refrigerate the remaining marinade.

If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before use. Preheat the grill. Remove the beef cubes from the marinade. Place the beef, onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes onto the skewers in alternating order. Place the skewers on the preheated grill. Brush often with the other half of the marinade. Grill, turning once, until cooked to desired internal temperature, about 10 minutes.
