Margarita Beef & Shrimp Skewers

Margarita Beef & Shrimp Skewers

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.


  • 1 cup margarita mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound top sirloin steak, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 pound shrimp (16-20 count) peeled and deveined
  • 8 metal or bamboo skewers, soak bamboo in water 30 minutes
  • 16 mushrooms with stems
  • 1 onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large red or green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces


  1. Combine margarita mix, salt, sugar, garlic, and vegetable oil in mixing bowl. Toss sirloin cubes in marinade solution and soak 30 minutes refrigerated.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat. We like the Big Green Egg.
  3. Assemble skewers; alternate sirloin chunks with shrimp and veggies, beginning and ending with mushrooms as shown. Brush with remaining marinade. Grill to desired doneness, turning once, approximately 10 minutes total at 350° for steak to be cooked medium-rare to medium.
We served ours over rice pilaf and fried okra. Provides four to six adult servings.
