Steak Skewers with Parsley Sauce

You must be signed in to print this content
Beef filet always makes an occasion special, but in the case of these mini beef kebabs, it's all in the parsley sauce - almost a fresh salsa - that makes the dish shine. For an interesting change, mix it up and substitute fresh pineapple chunks for the tomatoes; they make for a surprisingly harmonious combination. One note: don't marinate the beef any longer than three hours, because the vinegar in the marinade will break down the meat and ruin its texture.

Image of Steak Skewers with Parsley Sauce


  • 3 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black peppers
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef filet (cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 40 cubes))
  • Vegetable or canola oil (for the grill)
  • 40 cherry tomatoes (about 2 pints)


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, blend together the parsley, garlic, vinegar, red pepper flakes, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, until smooth. With the machine running, gradually add the olive oil and process until incorporated. Spoon half of the sauce into a medium bowl. Spoon the remaining sauce in a small serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Put the beef in the medium bowl with the parsley sauce. Toss well to coat the beef. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.
  3. Place a grill pan over medium high heat, or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Lightly oil the grill pan or the grilling rack with vegetable oil.
  4. Thread the skewers starting with a cherry tomato, then a cube of beef. Repeat with another cherry tomato, another cube of beef, and then repeat one more time. Continue with the remaining skewers. Grill the skewers for 2 to 3 minutes on each side (for medium-rare) or until desired doneness. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. To serve, arrange the beef skewers on a serving platter. Drizzle with the reserved parsley sauce or serve the sauce on the side as a condiment.

    This was so yummy and easy. The grilled tomatoes mixed with the parsley sauce were so delicious! My parsley sauce was a much darker green so I'm not sure how Giada got that lime green color but the taste was great!

    Made this for our July 4th party and they were so good! I did add the pineapple in addition to the tomatoes. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes which gave it a nice color. Beef was so tender & sauce delicious. Followed recipe exactly & easy to make. Will definitely make again!
