What is the best cut of beef for skewers?

NY strip steak has the perfect amount of marbling to make these Asian-inspired beef skewers juicy. Leaner sirloin would be too dry.

Beef and Broccoli Skewers Ingredients

Below is everything you need to make this healthy beef and broccoli skewer recipe. Scroll to the bottom to see the exact measurements.

  • Soy Sauce for a rich umami flavor. Use gluten-free tamari to make the GF.
  • Rice Wine Vinegar provides a subtle tanginess.
  • Honey’s sweetness balances the saltiness and acidity.
  • Sesame Oil adds a nutty taste.
  • Aromatics: Grated garlic and ginger
  • Salt and Black Pepper ensure the beef is well seasoned.
  • Steak: Trim the fat off New York strip steak and cut it into 1-inch pieces.
  • Broccoli: Cut the broccoli into florets, making sure they are about the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Scallions: Cut the white and light green parts into 1-inch pieces.

How to Make Beef Skewers

These easy beef and broccoli skewers cook in under 10 minutes! For the complete instructions, see the recipe card below.

  1. Beef and Broccoli Marinade: Whisk the marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. Then, pour half into another bowl.
  2. Marinate the Beef: Add the meat to one of the bowls and toss to coat. Let it marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature or cover and refrigerate it for up to 8 hours.
  3. Soak wooden skewers (if using) in water for at least 20 minutes so they don’t burn on the grill.
  4. Assemble the Skewers: Thread a scallion, broccoli floret, and beef on a skewer. Repeat with another layer, ending with 1 last scallion. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 8 skewers.
  5. Broccoli and Beef Sauce: Brush the skewers with the reserved marinade and season with salt and pepper.
  6. How to Grill Beef Skewers: Set the grill to high heat and oil the grates. Grill the skewers to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, brushing with the remaining marinade.
  7. How to Broil Beef Skewers: Heat the broiler to high and set the rack about 6 inches away. Set the kebabs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil for about 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare or longer to your desired doneness, brushing with the remaining marinade.


  • Vegetables: If you want to add more veggies or swap out the broccoli, try them with cubed eggplant or mushrooms.
  • Meat: Substitute flank steak or 1-inch pieces of chicken thighs.
  • Soy Sauce: Use low-sodium tamari for gluten-free or coconut aminos for soy-free.
  • Vinegar: Replace rice wine vinegar with apple cider vinegar.

Side Dish Suggestions


  • Refrigerator: Leftover beef and broccoli will last 4 days in the fridge.
  • Freezer: Remove the food from the skewers and freeze in an airtight container for 3 months.
  • Reheat: Thaw in the fridge and microwave until warm.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Season with black pepper.

  • Separate the broccoli into 16 florets (you may have some extra broccoli). They should each be 1 to 1 1/2 inches, cut any particularly big florets in half and trim the stems.

  • Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes so they don’t burn on the grill. Drain before threading the skewers.

  • When the meat is ready, make the skewers: Thread 1 piece scallion perpendicular to the skewer, then carefully thread 1 broccoli floret onto the skewer, then 1 piece of beef. Repeat with another layer of scallion, broccoli, beef, then finish with the last of the scallion. Repeat with all the ingredients to make 8 skewers.
