Recipe from Park Grill

  • Wooden skewers
  • 1 lb. beef flank or sirloin steak, about 1-in. thick
  • 3/4 c. barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, light a hot fire in a charcoal or gas grill. Slice the beef across the grain into thin strips. Carefully ease the beef strips onto skewers, snaking each strip so it looks like a series of S's on the skewer. You may have more than one strip of beef per skewer. Place the beef onto a large plate or platter.

    Whisk together the barbecue sauce, lemon juice, crushed garlic, red and black pepper and salt in a bowl. Set aside half of sauce. Pour or brush the remaining sauce evenly over the beef and allow to marinate for 5 to 10 minutes, then discard.

    Place the skewers on the grill and cover. After 3 minutes, flip skewers, brushing meat with some of the reserved sauce; cover and cook for 3 more minutes, until meat is done. Serve with remaining sauce.
