These easy Baked OR Grilled Greek Beef Kabobs (Greek Souvlaki) with tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers and onions are crazy juicy, exploding with flavor and a complete meal in one, not to mention an impressive crowd pleaser!
I’ve included instruction to make this Souvlaki both in the oven and on the grill because you are going to want to make these beef kabobs year round! Not only is the beef crazy juicy and exploding with flavor from the beef kakob marinade but each tender morsel get’s dunked in refreshing, creamy, heavenly Whipped Feta Tzatziki Dip!
Speaking of heaven, I am just returning from paradiscal Cabo (see IG Instagram Stories for more). My entire family (including my parents who were in town from Germany) left for Cabo Monday (24th) and I wasn’t able to escape with them as planned because my IV antibiotics were extended for another week, but after a rollercoaster of emotions, Patrick and I were able to book spontaneous tickets for Saturday and leave a day after my IV picc line was pulled – happy day!
Although Cabo feels like paradise with its turquoise-blue waves, warm water and refreshing breezes, it really is family that made this heaven to me. We played in the ocean, played in the pool and played tons and tons of games all together. Its these memories that I will cherish always…..and of course my adorable 9 year-old niece singing herself to sleep at the top of her lungs for almost an hour to songs such as “We Are The World,” “Davy Crockett,” “Put Your Records On” before conking out mid note. priceless.
Now onto these Greek Steak Kabobs (Souvlaki) with Whipped Feta Tzatziki Dip! While you can put a price on these Greek Steak Kabobs, I can guarantee its way less than eating out, and they taste way better! The marinated steak is melt-in-your-mouth tender and wonderfully smoky, juicy and just plain delicious. These Greek Steak Kabobs can also be very quick to assemble IF you get some helping hands to skewer. We made kabobs in Cabo, and with everyone skewering at once, our kabobs were assembled in minutes. also priceless.
What is Souvlaki?
If you aren’t familiar with Greek Steak Kabobs (Souvlaki), Souvlaki is one of the most popular street foods in Greece that dates way back to 200BC. It consists of small pieces of meat and sometimes vegetables grilled on a skewer served with cooling tzatziki sauce, so basically our modern day kabob, or kebab or shish kabob or skewer. By whatever name, we have the Greeks to thank for this epic smoky, bite size deliciousness.
These Greek Steak Kabobs (Souvlaki) owe their mouthwatering Mediterranean flavor to the easy dynamic beef kabob marinade that I based off of my favorite Greek Chicken Marinade recipe that I am slightly obsessed with (evidenced HERE, HERE and HERE). Simply whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and our hand picked herbs and seasonings then let your steak bathe in the tenderizing/flavor infusing marinade for 4-6 hours.
What to Serve with Souvlaki?
Meanwhile, its Whipped Feta Tzatziki Dip time! This indulgent dip is creamy, tangy and positively addicting! Think your traditional Tzatziki Dip with Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic and dill but with the addition of whipped cream cheese and feta – I’m drooling. Are you drooling?
You are welcome to make traditional Tzatziki if you wish and it will still be cool and refreshing, but for an extra delicious oomph, you are going to want to try this luscious Whipped Feta Tzatziki Dip.
These Greek Steak Kabobs (Souvlaki) with Whipped Feta Tzatziki Dip are a stand-alone meal or I like to serve with warm pita bread, brown rice and grapes for a dazzling Mediterranean feast.
Now gather your family around and dig in for some heaven-on-earth!
