If you’re looking for a steak kabob that will give you a flavor kick in the mouth, then look no further than these Brazilian steak kabobs. Steak, potatoes, bell pepper and onion, marinated and brushed with Brazilian steak seasoning make the juiciest, most delicious kabobs that you will want to enjoy all summer long.
Other than taco seasoning, I don’t use packaged seasonings very often. But when I learned about a Brazilian steakhouse marinade, to be used for kabobs, I just couldn’t resist trying it. And let me just tell you – I have never made, nor had, steak kabobs with so much flavor.
Tender cuts of steak and veggies marinated in olive oil and this seasoning, then skewered and grilled to tasty perfection. These kabobs are everything. And, I would venture to say that you could use chicken in place of the steak and experience the same amazing flavors.
I first made these a couple of years ago, and we were both wowed by how good they were. Kabobs can be tricky little things to make – choosing the right components so that none of it is cooking much faster or slower than the rest. We like our veggies to have a little char to them, so the bell peppers and onions are perfect, and the potatoes get a quick micro-zap to soften them up a bit before marinating and heading to the grill. And the steak…man oh man that steak. The marinade is such a perfect compliment to the tender beef and it comes off the grill as juicy perfection.
Can I tell you a little secret? I was raised on A-1 sauce. We never ate a steak without it, and I really can’t to this day. Even in a nice restaurant, I have to sheepishly ask for it. It’s just what I know. But these were so flavorful and juicy, that it never even crossed my mind to grab the bottle from the fridge for a dipping extravaganza. They were just that good.
