  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 lemon, trimmed and sliced crosswise into 8 rounds
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin steak, cut into sixteen 1-inch cubes
  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  • 4 scallions, white portions only, cut into eight 1-inch pieces


In a small bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon salt and the sugar; add the lemon slices and toss. Let stand for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, mustard and vinegar; transfer one-third of the marinade to a medium bowl. Add the beef to the large bowl, and the tomatoes and scallions to the medium bowl; toss. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Thread each of eight 10-inch skewers with a beef cube, lemon slice, tomato wedge, another beef cube, a scallion piece and another tomato wedge.

Brush the grill with olive oil. Season the kebabs with salt and pepper and grill, turning occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare.
