St. Patrick's Day Kabobs
Recipe & Giveaway!

You don't have to dye your food green to be festive on St. Patrick's Day. There are lots of ways to show your spirit including this recipe for St. Patrick's Day Kabobs which incorporates the colors of the Irish Flag.

Unless St. Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend, you may not always have time to make a traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage Dnner, but this is an easy and fun way to celebrate that is especially fun to make on the grill.

The primary colors used for the skewered food represents the Irish tricolor including green from broccoli, white from onion, and orange from an orange (or red) bell pepper arranged single file on the skewer, separated by medallions of beef.

I received this terrific recipe from Grilling Montana and am happy to share a giveaway opportunity to win one a trio of T.Lish Marinade Sauces that you can use to make this recipe and many others.

St Patrick's Day Shish Kabob Recipe


·        14-16 oz. beef sirloin, cubed in 1.5 inch pieces
·         1 medium sweet onion quartered and pedaled
·         2 cups large broccoli florets
·         1 large orange or red bell pepper cut to about 16 uniform pieces
·         1 cup T-Lish all natural Asian Sesame or Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette
·         Salt and Pepper as desired


Marinade cubed beef pieces in ½ cup T-Lish all natural Asian Sesame or Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette for three or more hours up to overnight. Reserve remainder for basting.

Pre-heat grill and fire bricks if available. Skewer kebabs. Alternate between veggies and meat using all ingredients. Lightly brush T-Lish all natural Asian Sesame or Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette on veggies based on your flavor preference and season kebabs with salt and pepper.

Grill for 12-15 min painting remainder of T-Lish all natural Asian Sesame or Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette on as needed to accentuate flavor and promote browning.

Turn frequently to prevent burning. Ingredients will often recede from skewer when done allowing them to slide effortlessly on the plate.

Serve with your favorite Irish beverage.


Makes 3-4 kebabs
