BBQ Recipe: Marinated Steak Skewers

As all we get ready to enjoy the last of the summer holidays, why not get the BBQ out and try some of these Marinated Steak Skewers!

A few weeks ago we hosted a dinner party for Chris' mum and dad. It was their 28th Wedding Anniversary so we wanted to make all of their favourite food! His dad is a big fan of steak so we decided to make some steak skewers. We've had skewers a lot for BBQ's in the past, but we've never marinated the meat before.

To make these Marinated Steak Skewers you will need (we made 10 skewers):

Steak - any steak will do, we actually used steak medallions for this
6 peppers: we used 2 green, 2 red and 2 orange
1 large onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
60ml of lemon juice
60ml of soy sauce
120ml of olive oil

To make the skewers it's really simple! Start by cutting up your meat and vegetables for the skewers. You want to aim for nice cubes of meat and squares of pepper and onion. If you're using wooden skewers, you will need to soak them in water for 10-20 minutes before using them. 

Now you can make your marinade: crush your garlic into a bowl with the salt, pepper, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and soy sauce. Mix the ingredients well to ensure it's combined. Now you need to grab a whisk and whisk the mixture whilst pouring in the olive oil. You need to whisk continuously so the oil combines with the mixture and doesn't separate.

Place all your meat and vegetables into the marinade and let it sit for a few minutes. Once marinated put your ingredients on to the skewers. 

Heat your BBQ or your griddle pan (if it's raining) and place your skewers on to the grill. Cook on a medium-high heat and turn them occasionally to get an even cook. The marinade will give the skewer a really nice char so don't worry if it's looking burnt. 

Leave to rest for 5 minutes once the meat has cooked to your liking and then serve!
