1/3 cup oil

1/3 cup soy sauce

3 Tbsp lemon or lime juice

1/4 cup honey

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp fresh basil chopped


1 1/2 lbs top sirloin steak, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

1 large bell pepper cut into large chunks

1-2 medium red or white onions cut into 1 1/2-inch squares

10-15 grape tomatoes or tomatoes cut into chunks

About 20 bamboo or wooden skewers


Mix olive oil, lemon/lime juice, garlic, basil, honey and soy sauce together in a bowl and add cubed meat. Cover marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes - several hours or overnight is ideal but not necessary.

Soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling to prevent burning if using wooden/bamboo skewers.

Thread meat and vegetables onto skewers in desired order; the more space between, the easier the meat will cook. Coat skewers with remaining marinade.

Grill 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
