Lots of flavor without a lot of work. Top Sirloin Steak kabobs are even more delicious when paired with a fig preserve sauce.


  • 1 beef Top Sirloin Steak Boneless, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 12 pieces
  • 1/2 cup fig preserves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Soak four 10-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. Cut beef steak into sixteen 1-1/4-inch pieces.
  2. Alternately thread beef and onion pieces evenly onto skewers. Set aside.

    Cook's Tip: One pound beef Flat Iron or Ranch Steaks, cut 3/4-inch thick may be substituted for Top Sirloin Steak.

  3. Combine preserves, vinegar, oil, garlic, salt and pepper in small bowl; reserve 1/4 cup for dipping. Brush kabobs with some of remaining sauce.
  4. Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 13 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning and basting with sauce every 2 minutes.
  5. Season kabobs with salt, as desired. Serve with reserved sauce for dipping.
