Kitchen Hack: How To Make Kabobs in the Oven

Kitchen Hack (noun):  Refers to a shortcut found in the kitchen.  A tip or a technique that makes one’s life easier, specifically when it comes to organizing or preparing a meal.

I love grilling out, but I’m not much of a grill master. My husband does pretty good, but we still don’t grill often. With a young family, it’s easier if we eat right when my husband gets home and it’s too hard for me to keep an eye on the boys AND an eye on the grill. So, when I want the taste of something that’s usually grilled, I try to figure out a way to make it in the oven (or I just wait for the weekend when my husband is home!)

That’s what I do with cheeseburgers. And that’s what I do with kabobs. I just put the kabob meat in a simple marinade for a few hours, them spear them up, and bake them! Is it exactly like it is on the grill? Nah, but it’s still really, really good.

Kabobs made in the oven make it a perfect recipe for year round eating! No need to wait for perfect weather. #kabobs #steakkabobs #kabobs #oven #veggies #vegetables

You can use this marinade or another that you like. This one is pretty simple and we like the flavors, but pick whichever one you want. This marinade is enough for 2-3 pounds of steak.  If you’re making much less than that, only make 1/2 the marinade – that will be plenty!

You can also marinade the vegetables if you want to really bump up the flavor, but it isn’t required.

  • 2-3 lbs Steak, Cut into large cubes
  • Vegetables - cherry tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, etc

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon dry mustard


  • Combine marinade ingredients in a large container.  Add steak and marinade 2-24 hours.
  • Chop veggies into pieces.
  • Thread veggies and meat onto metal kabob skewers. I like to do meat alone in case it needs more time to cook than the veggies, but you can put both meat and veggies onto the same skewer.
  • Place onto metal baking sheet.
  • Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes depending on how thick your veggies & steak were cut. 
  • Turn every 10 minutes or so to ensure even cooking.
