Margarita Beef Skewers
Grilling Up the Beef on the Fourth of July
Recipe by chellebelle
"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. Serve over rice."
1 cup margarita mix
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 pound top sirloin steak, cut into 1 ½-inch cubes
8 metal skewers, or bamboo skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes
16 mushrooms, stems trimmed
1 onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 large red or green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
