"These skewers are quick and easy to make and taste terrific. With tender top sirloin, you don't need to marinate a long time to tenderize the meat, just long enough to impart the flavors of the citrus and garlic marinade. Serve over rice."

top sirloin steak, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
metal skewers, or bamboo skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes
mushrooms, stems trimmed
onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
red or green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
I doubled the amount of garlic right away. While these were marinating, I made myself a margarita. My son and husband loved the skewers, daughter didn't care for them, and I loved my margarita a lot more, I'm afraid. I found the meat to be too sweet, and needed an extra shake of garlic salt once they were done. I would've given it 3 stars, but like I said, my boys loved it.
Big mistake.....recipe says vegetable oil, directions says olive oil. Which is it?! I'm going with olive oil....I guess!
Fantastic recipe - the steak really picked up the flavor of the marinade. I soaked the bamboo skewers for 30 minutes in the marinade as well prior to threading them.
I followed the recipe except for the peppers. The marinade gave the meat a nice limey flavor. This was a welcome change from more traditional grilling marinades. I will definately make these again.
Easy & tasty! I also skipped the peppers in this recipe only because I'm the only one that likes them and I marinated them overnight.
My family really liked this meat. It was very easy to make, and I liked that it didn't have to marinate for hours or days. Thanks!
The first time I tried this, I followed the recipe exactly and it was OK. The second time I tweaked it to my tastes and it was very good. I omitted the sugar, minced 8 large garlic cloves, added a pinch of black pepper and a tablespoon of red pepper flakes, then marinated it at room temp for 2 hours. Delicious!
Yummy, but I'd add a decent amount of lime juice to make sure it has that lime flavor.
