The weather is heating up in Eastern Iowa and that means we’re breaking out the grill. Grilling is a great way to keep the house cool. It’s also fun to involve my husband in the cooking. However, this recipe is so easy that even if you can’t get your husband out to the grill, you can absolutely make this quick Greek Sandwich yourself!
Turn this Shish Kabob Recipe in an Easy Greek Sandwich Tonight!
The first thing you need to do to make delicious steak shish kabobs is find the right steak. If you have an unlimited budget, the best beef cut for making tender shish kabobs is a filet mignon or a porterhouse. If your budget is a little bit tighter, I recommend using sirloin (it’s what I use!) To save time, ask the butcher at your meat counter to cut the sirloin into 1″ cubes. They should be able to do that for you for free, and having the butcher cut the meat will save you time.
Marinating is the next big key to getting flavorful steak shish kabobs. A super easy way to marinate your meat is to use pre-made salad dressing! While it’s not a lot of trouble to mix up your own marinade, using a pre-made salad dressing will save you time, and every minute counts when you’re trying to feed a starving family!
We really love Ken’s new Simply Vinaigrette for marinating steak. The Greek version works very well in this recipe. And a quarter cup is all you need! If you’re using a more expensive cut of meat, you can marinate more quickly – about a half hour. If you’re using a less expensive beef cut, it’s best to marinate your steak overnight for best flavors.
The Simply Vinaigrette Greek is the perfect marinade if you love Mediterranean flavors as much as I do! Ingredients include cider vinegar, garlic, and lemon giving the grilled beef for this Mediterranean sandwich a nice tang. My kids said these beef shish kabob were some of the best kabobs I’ve ever made! And that’s a huge compliment coming from my children.
How to Grill the Steak Shish Kabobs
Fire up the grill and get it nice and hot. We use a gas grill so I just turn it on medium and close the lid to let it heat up. When the grill is almost hot, skewer the meat on your skewers. We use reusable metal skewers, but you can use whatever you want. If you use wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes ahead of time so they won’t catch on fire. Now, put them on the hot grill and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes per side. That means you’ll flip the skewers about four times. Brush a little dressing on the pita bread and heat for 30 seconds per side on the grill.
To assemble your easy Greek Sandwich:
Simply add steak, lettuce, feta, cucumbers, tomatoes and a drizzle of Ken’s Greek Dressing to taste! That’s it! Enjoy. Serve with olives, hummus, and fresh tabbouleh salad if you want. You can also skip the pita and just eat the ingredients deconstructed too!
