Grilled Sirloin and Peach Skewers


Kebabs are perfect party fare. They’re portable and require no utensils to be enjoyed by your guests. These Grilled Sirloin and Peach Skewers are a nice change from the usual teriyaki kebabs and they can be prepared on large or small skewers, depending on the type of party you’re hosting.

The marinade of bottled steak sauce and peach butter or preserves is delicious. The peach flavor is further emphasized when fresh peach chunks are skewered along with the sirloin, red onion and red bell pepper.

You can marinate the sirloin overnight and prepare the skewers early in the day. Then, fire up the grill and cook the skewers when your guests arrive. Their enticing aroma is sure to whet everyone’s appetite.

  • 1 cup steak sauce
  • 1/2 cup peach butter or peach preserves
  • 2 pounds sirloin tips, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1 ½-inch squares
  • 2 peaches, peeled, pitted and each peach cut into 8 wedges
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 long or 24 small wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
Combine steak sauce and peach butter or preserves in a small bowl. Combine sirloin and half of peachy steak sauce in a large bowl. (Reserve remaining sauce for serving.) Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

When ready to grill, light indoor or outdoor gas grill and heat on high for 5 minutes. Thread sirloin onto soaked skewers, alternating with peaches, peppers and onions.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Lightly brush grates of grill with oil. Grill skewers 5 to 7 minutes per side, depending on doneness desired. Remove to a platter and serve with additional steak sauce on the side.

Makes 12 large or 24 small skewers.
