Classic Beef Shish Kebabs

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

The trick with these kebabs is to cook the meat separately from the vegetables so nothing overcooks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 2 teaspoons oil, rosemary, and garlic in a large zip-top bag. Add beef; seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  2. Remove beef from bag; discard marinade. Thread beef evenly onto 6 wooden skewers; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon oil and juice in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms, tossing to coat.
  4. Thread each vegetable separately onto skewers; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  5. Place beef and vegetable kebabs on the barbecue coated with cooking spray. Grill onion and pepper kebabs 10 minutes. Grill beef kebabs 9 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Grill tomato and mushroom kebabs 7 minutes.

i bought some tenderloin tips on sale today and i didnt know what to do with them..there are only a few recipes which use the tips. I made these kabobs per recipe --my only changes are that i used small portobello mushrooms, red/yellow peppers and onions for the veggies. I cut my veggies large and my meat small so that I didnt need to precook the meat. Thanks Abby Girl for this great recipe
