Directions

Prepare the marinade:

Mix together the oil, garlic, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Set aside.

Trim the beef, removing any gristle or fat as desired.

Cut the beef into 1 to 1¼ inch cubes.

Then cut each cube almost but not through the center, leaving about ½ inch. This helps the marinade penetrate inside each cube.

Then Cut each cube almost but not through the center, leaving about 1/2 inch. This helps the marinade penetrate inside each cube

Toss the beef chunks with the marinade until well coated.

Place the beef and marinade into a zipper back and seal. Marinate at least 1½ hours or up to two days.

Preparing the vegetables:

Peel and core the pineapple. Cut into one inch cubes.

Peel and cut the onion into quarters. Using the 3 large outer layers only (reserve the core for another recipe) cut into 1 to 2 inch pieces (3 layers each) suitable for skewering.

Peel and cut the onion into quarters.

Add the pineapple chunks and bell peppers, 1½ tablespoons of olive oil, salt and black pepper to taste in a medium bowl, toss until well coated.

Add the pineapple chunks and bell peppers, 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and black pepper to taste in a medium bowl, toss until well coated.

Brush the onion with remaining oil and season with salt and black pepper.

Using metal skewers or soak wood skewers well.

Thread each skewer with a pineapple chunk, three layers of onion (in one stack) and cube of beef. Skewer the beef (that was nearly cut in half earlier) arranging it back into it's original cube, as if it had not been cut.

Thread each skewer with a pineapple chunk, three layers of onion (in one stack) and cube of beef.
Arranging it back into it's original cube, as if it had not been cut.

Add one of each color of pepper chunks and repeat until the skewer is nearly full then repeat the process with all the skewers until the ingredients have been used up.

Then repeat the process with all the skewers until the ingredients have been used up.

Brush any remaining oil over skewers.

Here they are all piled up and ready to grill.

Grill the kebabs over direct heat until the beef is well grill marked, and cooked to medium-rare, 6 to 8 minutes (or 7 to 9 minutes for medium), turning each kebab every 2 or 3 minutes to grill evenly on all sides.

Here we have the well-grilled beef kebabs.
Until the beef is well grill marked,

Transfer the kebabs to a serving platter or plate and squeeze lemon or lime wedges over kebabs.

Place on the serving platter and time to enjoy!

Serve.

Excellent, perfect combination of ingredients that cook evenly. All of our guests commented on how well the grilled pineapple and beef combined so well.

These look REALLY good. What cut of beef did you use?

Hi Lynn, you can use top blade steaks or top sirloin steaks. These kebobs tasted absolutely delicious, well worth the effort :)
