Grilled Beef Kebabs

One of the most memorable items from my years working the grill at Mr. Steak, were the beef kebabs. With the restaurant chain now defunct for well over 2 decades, it is difficult to find those old recipes anywhere, but this is how I remembered it.


Grilled Beef Kebabs

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Print


  • 1½ lbs beef tenderloin or boneless top sirloin cut into 1¼ to 1½ inch cubes
  • 2 large red and/or yellow onions
  • 2 large bell peppers
  • 2 16oz bottles Wishbone ® Russian dressing
  • 4 ozs Lea & Perrins ® Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Lawry’s ® seasoned salt
  • 4 stainless steel kebab skewers


  • In a large bowl, combine the dressing, Worcestershire, black pepper and seasoned salt, and blend thoroughly.

  • Cut the onions and bell peppers into large square pieces, cutting off the ends first.

  • Create the kebabs by skewering 1 piece of meat, then 1 piece of onion, 1 piece of meat and 1 piece of bell pepper, and so on, until each kebab has 5 brochettes of beef with alternating sections of onion and bell pepper.

  • Lay the assembled kebabs in a rectangular casserole dish and pour the marinade on top, smothering the kebabs. Cover tightly with saran wrap and allow to marinate for at least 24 hours – the longer the better, but no longer than 4 to 5 days.

  • Remove the kebabs from the marinade and place upon a searing hot grill.

  • Allow the outside of the meat to char some before turning 1 quarter using tongs and a heavy spatula. Continue grilling, rotating the kebab by quarter turns, until reaching the desired degree of doneness.

  • Remove from the grill and serve immediately on a bed of brown rice with a scoop of sauteed mushrooms on the side.

  1. Wow, I thought it was totally something different. But I never made it, I was a waitress. But I thought it had red wine, and tomato sauce. But I will try your recipe. I met my husband there back in 1977 he was a cook. Unfortunately he can’t remember how it was made. I wish they would bring back there recipes. I loved, loved, their meats. Like the fingerlength, and the one with the mushrooms and cheese inside. I think it was called the continental. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

    1. I remember when the restaurant aired a national TV commercial, one of our team brought in a portable black & white so we could all gather around and watch it. It was pretty humorous!

      Thanks for your input, and sorry it took so long to respond! Actually, I thought I did respond quite awhile ago. Oh well, thnx again!

      P.S. I hope your kebabs turned out as expected!
