This recipe if part of our Game Day Starters playlist on the Grill Dome YouTube Channel. Skewers are a quick, easy and tasty way to please a crowd.  You can go cheap and use chicken for your protein or you can splurge a bit and use some nice beef.  In this recipe, I chose to go with some nice, lean tri-tip.  The bourbon marinade/glaze really sets this recipe off, so make sure to try this next time you’re planning on some yummy skewers.

Bourbon Glaze Ingredients

1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire
1/4 cup pineapple juice
4-5 chunks of pineapple

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor and set aside in fridge or use immediately.

Skewer Ingredients

1.5 – 2 lbs lean beef (I used tri-tip)
2 bell peppers
1 large onion
Large pineapple chunks
Steak seasoning

Cut the beef into chunks then marinate in some of the bourbon marinade/glaze for at least a couple hours (or even as long as overnight..). Make sure to save some of the marinade for glazing the skewers before and during the cook. After the beef has marinated, slice the onion and peppers into pieces ideal for skewers. Take your onions, peppers, pineapple and beef and alternate those onto your skewers. Glaze the uncooked skewers with some of the marinade them coat lightly on both sides with your favorite beef seasoning blend.

Set your Grill Dome up for a direct heat cook and preheat the kamado to 400°F. Once your Grill Dome is preheated, place the skewers on and cook for somewhere around 10-12 minutes (or until the beef is done to your liking…), flipping them half way through the cook. A few minutes before they’re done, give them one last glaze with the bourbon marinade. Enjoy!
