I’ve made this 3-4 times already and still love the flavor. When sirloin goes on sale, I’ll have the butcher chop up some of the sirloin steak into kebab size pieces, so all I have to do is throw them in a bag with this marinade and we are good to go. We’ve used this on full size steaks, too. They just take a little longer to grill.
For a great chicken marinade, try this one by Todd Wilbur. It is a copycat of Applebees chicken fajita rollup.
Garlic and Herb Marinade
yield: enough for 2 lbs. of sirloin steak kebabs; steak tips
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 T minced fresh rosemary or 1 tsp. dried rosemary (or substitute thyme)
1 T minced fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
1 Tb. packed dark brown sugar
1 Tb. tomato paste (I’ve tried it with and without and we like it both ways, so don’t run out to the store if you don’t have it)
1 tsp. pepper
1. Mix it all up and add to a ziplock bag with the beef. Toss to coat.
2. Keep in the fridge for 1 hour and flip it after 30 minutes.
3. Grill until desired doneness.
