A big grilling holiday is coming up, so I thought I’d get this recipe for Steak and Mushroom Kabobs updated with new photos for the occasion! I find meat so challenging to photograph, but definitely the new photos are a big improvement, and these kabobs were so tasty.

Meat-eaters love a juicy steak on the grill, and who doesn’t love grilled mushrooms, and this is a recipe that combines steak and mushrooms into easy kabobs that are delicious and quick. And when steak is a stretch for the budget, cooking it on grilled kabobs with other ingredients makes it a bit more affordable.

You start with pieces of tender steak, marinate the pieces for one hour in a flavorful mixture, add the mushrooms to marinate for another hour, and then make kabobs with steak and mushrooms, grill and enjoy!

What kind of steak did I use for the kabobs?

I used pieces of tri-tip from Costco for this recipe, but most any steak that doesn’t need a long marinating time will work.

How can you cook the steak and mushrooms besides making kabobs?

If cutting the meat and making kabobs seems like too much trouble, you could also marinate the whole steaks, then cook them along side the mushrooms in a Vegetable Basket for the Grill (affiliate link).

Make it a Low-Carb Meal:

The Steak and Mushroom Kabobs in this photo were served with American Greek Salad on the side! This would also be delicious with Fattoush Lebanese Salad, Al’s Famous Hungarian Cucumber Salad, Broccoli Salad with Feta and Almonds, Loaded Cauliflower Mock Potato Salad, or Marinated Zucchini Salad for a low-carb meal!

Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 25 minutes

Pieces of steak and mushrooms are marinated and then grilled for an easy and delicious low-carb dinner!



  • 20 oz. beef steak (see notes)
  • 8 oz mushrooms, washed and air-dried (see notes)

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (see notes)
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce (see notes)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Vege-Sal or salt
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste (I like a lot of pepper in this.)


  1. Trim the meat well and cut steak into pieces about 1 1/2 inches square.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt,  and lots of fresh ground black pepper to make the marinade.
  3. Put steak pieces into large ziploc bag, pour in the marinade mixture, and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour.
  4. While the steak marinates, wash mushrooms and let them air-dry in the colander.
  5. After an hour add mushrooms to marinating steak and marinate one hour more.
  6. When you’re ready to cook, spray or brush grill with oil or non-stick grilling spray and preheat grill to high.
  7. Thread steak and mushrooms on skewers, preferably Double Kabob Skewers (affiliate link) or thicker blade type skewers. I used the thick blade type skewers I got in Turkey!
  8. Grill steak to desired temperature; about 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare. Add 1 more minute per side for medium or 2 more minutes per side for medium-well.
  9. If you like your meat quite rare you might want to make kabobs with just the meat and cook the mushrooms in a Vegetable Basket for the Grill (affiliate link).
  10. Let meat rest a minute or two before you take it off the skewers.
  11. Serve hot and enjoy!


Use a cut of beef such as Top Sirloin, New York Steak, Tri-Tip Steak, or Petite Sirloin for this recipe. I used white wine vinegar (affiliate link) for this recipe but white balsamic vinegar would also work. I used Worcestershire sauce (affiliate link) but omit for Paleo or use gluten-free Worcestershire sauce (affiliate link) if needed. I used brown Baby Bella mushrooms but white mushrooms are also fine.
