Steak and Pineapple Skewers

Kabobs are always fun and festive, whether served to your family or when you have friends over for a BBQ.  You can have kabobs ready ahead of time or guests may participate in the fun of threading their own arrangement on the skewers.  The marinade is a winner with our Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


1½ lbs. sirloin or ribeye steak (approximately 1″ thick)

1 fresh pineapple

1 bunch fresh basil, torn into small pieces

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp of our Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 clove garlic, minced

Fresh ground pepper

8 wooden or metal skewers (if using wood, soak in warm water for 30 minutes prior to grilling)


1.  In a large container (preferably with a lid), mix together the soy sauce, 1/3 cup olive oil, garlic and a substantial amount of pepper. This is your marinade.

2.  Cube beef into 1″ cubes and toss into marinade. Leave to marinate for 1 hour or as long as 24 hours.

3.  Cut pineapple into chunks.

4.  Toss pineapple with basil, 1 Tbsp oil and loads of fresh pepper. Let that sit for 30 minutes or so.

5.  Thread steak and pineapple, alternating between the two, onto skewers.

6.  Grill on a BBQ for 10-15 minutes (for medium rare), turning often to sear all sides.
