Mojo Beef Kabobs

Mojo sauce is a classic combination of lime, garlic and oregano. It is also great with whole grilled steaks such as flank or top loin steaks.

Total preparation and cooking time: 40 minutes



pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick


teaspoon coarse grind black pepper


large lime, cut into 8 wedges


small red onion, cut into 8 thin wedges


container grape or cherry tomatoes (about 10 ounces)

Mojo Sauce:


cup fresh orange juice


cup fresh lime juice


tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano


tablespoons olive oil


tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


teaspoon ground cumin


teaspoon minced garlic


teaspoon salt


1.    Whisk Cuban-Garlic Citrus Sauce ingredients in small bowl. Set aside.

2.    Cut beef steak into 1-1/4 inch pieces; season with pepper.

3.    Alternately thread beef with lime and onion wedges evenly onto four 12-inch metal skewers. Thread tomatoes evenly onto four 12-inch metal skewers.
