Coming up is a big grilling holiday 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 both these grill-time favorites into easy kabobs that are delicious and quick. You start with pieces of tender steak (I used tri-tip from Costco), marinate the pieces for one hour in a flavorful mixture, add the mushrooms to marinate for another hour, and then grill and enjoy!  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).

I’ll also be adding this recipe to my collection of Kalyn’s BEST Low-Carb Grilling Recipes, so you should have plenty of options if you’re grilling for the grilling season!

Steak and Mushroom Kabobs

Steak and Mushroom Kabobs

Yield 4 kabobs
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

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

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 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.)

Instructions

  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!

Notes

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.

  2. Is that 6 20 oz steaks or one 6 to 20 oz steak?

    • Oh wow, thanks for catching that! It was supposed to say 16-20 oz. (however many steaks it takes to be approximately that much meat). Just fixed it! Hope you enjoy!

  5. Please provide the carb information, I don’t want to have to download other resources to look up to see if this actually low-carb complaint! looks good though

    • I’m not able to provide nutritional information for the recipes for several reasons, including the additional time it takes, the difficulty in doing it accurately, and the sheer number of recipes on my site. If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information.

      I have over 2000 recipes on the site and spend 6-8 hours most days working on the blog. I just can’t edit over 2,000 recipes to add that info, and I know once I do it on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe.

      And you do not have to download anything to use Yummly, just click the link. Their site sometimes doesn’t have the nutritional information, but usually it’s there.

  10. can this be cooked in the oven? I don't have a grill but love kebobs!

    • I haven't tried making it in the oven, so I can't say for sure how it would work. I would probably use the broiler if you have one in your oven; that would be the closest to using a grill. Or a stove-top grill pan would work. Love to hear how that works for you if you try it.

  11. Chris, so glad you enjoyed it!

  12. What a fabulous recipe! I made this for dinner tonight and was so impressed. Simple and delicious! Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Trixie, since that photo is from 2005 I can't be sure, but I'm guessing it's just baby spinach tossed with vinaigrette dressing.

  14. What is the side salad in the photo? Looks great?

  15. Heidi, me too. Glad you like it.

  16. This is definitely a favorite flavor combo at the casa de Larsen. I could eat mushrooms all day.

  17. Red wine vinegar would be fine.

  18. Can you substitute red wine vinegar or white wine for the white wine vinegar. I have both of the formers but not the latter!

  19. Barbara, you are marinating the STEAK, then washing and drying the mushrooms and adding to the marinade with the steak. (I had to read it over to make sure that's what I said, sorry if it's confusing!)

  20. Why would you marinate mushrooms, wash them, dry them and then put them back in the same marinade? Someone who works for me asked and I had no clue.
