One of the fabulous events that occurs during the month of March is the NCAA Basketball Tournament… more commonly referred to as March Madness. Many people partake in bracket competitions, while others just enjoy the camaraderie of the games. The end of March means it’s time to celebrate the March Madness Final Four. What better way to celebrate than gathering with good friends and good food to watch the final games. One of my FAVORITE items to include on any hosting menu is my Tequila Marinated Beef Skewers.

Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon

  • 24 Bamboo Skewers
  • ¼ cup Fresh Lime Juice
  • ¼ cup Fresh Orange Juice
  • ½ cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup Shallots, chopped

  • Slice beef diagonally, across the grain, into 1/4-inch slices. Thread each slice onto a bamboo skewers. Place in a shallow pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine lime juice and remaining ingredients. Pour evenly over beef skewers. Cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes to 2 hours; turning occasionally.
  • Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400 F.
  • Remove skewers and discard marinade. Place skewers on grates and cook approximately 3-5 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness.


Tiffy’s Tips
  • Partially freeze beef for easier slicing or have your butcher slice for you.
  • Tenderloin is an excellent cut but use strip steak, sirloin, or flank steak.
  • If you don’t have a grill, use a rill pan for excellent results.

Tequila Marinated Beef Skewers are so easy to prepare, and this cut of beef is packed with protein and flavor that is certain to please. In the tequila marinade is a fabulous combination of umami-rich ingredients that compliment the incredible flavor of beef. Threaded on a skewer and grilled to perfection, the Tequila Marinated Beef Skewers will be quite the hit.
