Brazilian Steak Kabobs
I can still remember the first time I dined at an all you can eat Brazilian Steakhouse, or more appropriately named, a Rodízio. Pure magic.
My eyes were wide and my stomach was giddy at the not only a gourmet salad bar, a hot everything-you can-imagine-bar and decadent dessert bar, but all throughout the night, servers come to your table with diverse towering skewers stuffed with every meat imaginable from filet mignon, sirloin, lamb leg, sausage, chicken legs and sometimes exotic meats. The server slices meat directly off the cooking spit so you get to sample as many juicy, hot of the grill meats as your hungry heart desires.
I wanted to create a melt-in-your-mouth tender, juicy steak kabob infused with the same magical vibrant flavors as a Rodízio. A steak kabob that will transport you to the melting pot of Brazil with its dynamic layers of flavor influenced by Europeans, Africans and native Brazilians. Enter these Brazilian Steak Kabobs. Mission accomplished. And what better occasion to indulge in tasty, tangy and totally delicious steak kabobs than the 4th of July?
These Brazilian Steak Kabobs with Potatoes and Peppers are simply jaw droppingly delicious. An epic explosion of flavor. Or “insane,” as Patrick calls them (which you might have learned by now is reserved for only the most delectable morsels earning his highest praises).
What I especially love about these Brazilian Steak Kabobs is that although Brazilian flavored, they are not traditional Rodízio style all meat, but instead boast steak, potatoes, bell peppers and onions for a complete meal-in-one.
I also love that these Brazilian Steak Kabobs are completely customizable – skewer them all the same or skewer some all meat, some all veggie, or some with onion, some without, or to make it a fun hands-on meal, diners can make their own Brazilian Steak Kabobs with more or less of whatever they desire. This approach also cuts down on the skewering time for you!
Aside from the actually skewering, these Brazilian Steak Kabobs are super quick to throw together. You begin by whisking together all your marinade ingredient consisting of olive oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, and the secret to all that flavor – one package McCormick® Grill Mates® Brazilian Steakhouse Marinade. This Marinade package is everything. It’s a South American inspired blend of cilantro, garlic, onion, thyme and red and black peppers. You reserve 1/4 cup for your veggies and basting and bathe your beef in the remaining marinade for 4-6 hours.
Next, we make grilling potatoes not only possible but perfect with a little shortcut. Microwave your chopped potatoes for 4-5 minutes, just until tender. This allows them to grill alongside your steak and everything to be cooked through at the same time. The only real trick is to not overcook your potatoes in the microwave or they will fall off the skewers.
Once cooked and drained, add your peppers, onions, some of the Reserved Marinade, olive oil, salt and pepper to your potatoes and refrigerate until you’re ready to grill – so not only will your steak be infused with flavor, but your veggies as well for the best Brazilian Steak Kabobs ever.
Finally, skewer your steak and veggies, being sure to keep a little space between them so that the food grills versus steams, and grill until lightly charred all over, then prepare yourself for an epic explosion of yum.
