"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Brittany Muller


1 3/4 lbs. Sirloin steak (thicker steaks), diced into 1-inch cubes
1 large red onion, chopped into chunks
1 lb. cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes (look for larger ones)
2 small zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch thick
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Oil for brushing
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup (packed) fresh parsley (no thick stems)
1/4 cup (packed) fresh cilantro (no thick stems)
1 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic (1 large clove)

If using wooden skewers make sure to soak in water at least 1 hour (I just soak overnight).
Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 400 degrees and clean grill grates.
Thread steak, red onions, tomatoes and zucchini onto skewers brush very lightly with olive oil (you'll only need a about 1 Tbsp) and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Grill kebabs for about 4 minutes per side or until center registers 145 degrees. Remove and let rest 3 minutes.
While kebabs are grilling make chimicurri, in a mixing bowl whisk together olive oil, parsley, cilantro, oregano, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon chimichurri over kebabs and serve warm.

Variations on This Recipe
Swap steak out for chicken breasts, increase grill time by a few minutes until center of chicken registers 165.
Use all parsley (omit cilantro and increase parsley to 3/4 cup).
Use all red wine vinegar, I just like the blend of the red wine vinegar and lemon two but in a pinch the lemon is optional.
Add red pepper flakes to taste to the chimichurri or a 1/2 of a seeded minced red chile if you like heat.
Swap out the veggies for others you may have on hand such as bell peppers, mushrooms, or par boiled baby yukon potatoes, red potatoes or sweet potatoes.
