This is a great summertime grilling dish. Throw some vegetables of your choice in and you have a fun meat-and-potatoes meal that will throw your tastebuds into a tailspin. The ridiculously good marinade is quite simple, but it is one of our standbys. What are you waiting for? It’s time to fire up your summer grill and make these Marinated Steak and Potato Skewers.
Our ‘Ridiculously Good Steak Marinade’
Yes, this is actually what we call it in our house! Because it is just so ridiculously good, that you likely will turn to it again and again.
The immense amount of flavor that soy and Worcestershire sauces bring to the dish is incredible. And a little bit of onion, brown sugar, and spice really rounds this marinade out and makes it something special.
Choosing the Right Cut of Beef for These Skewers
There are many options when it comes to beef and choosing the right one can be tricky. For this application, we prefer a lean cut of beef that is easy to cut into bite-sized chunks. So we usually choose sirloin. Nothing super nice and expensive is necessary here since you will be marinating the beef as well, but choose the cut you like best for skewers.
Par-cooking the Potatoes
There’s really nothing tricky to this dish except for the potatoes. You want them to be cooked all the way through without cooking so much that they break up and fall right off the skewer. Par-cooking them on the stove first will help this process along. When you remove them from the water, they will cool down gradually (and continue to cook a bit). When you skewer them, they should have just the smallest amount of resistance.
The parsley butter is an added touch that really helps bring some flavor to the potatoes. We brush it onto the skewers while they cook on the grill, at the end for serving, and add a little dish of it at the table.
