Marinated Beef Skewers Recipe

marinated beef skewers

Have you ever checked out the clearance meat section at the grocery store?  Art calls it “grey meat”.  Basically, the grocery store marks down by at least 50% any meat that has an expiration date within the next day or two.  We’ve picked up some really great steaks this way.

Anyway, a few days ago we were browsing the “grey meat” and came across some stew beef marked down to just over a dollar a pound.  It’s been a little too hot lately for stew, but Art said he would love to make beef skewers.  Well, beef labeled “for stew” is notoriously tough, so I came up with an awesome (if I do say so myself) marinade recipe.

Marinated Beef Skewers


1/4 cup red wine

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1 clove garlic, minced


Combine all ingredients in a gallon-size resealable bag. Add beef cubes and allow to sit in refrigerator for up to 24 hours (We let it sit in refrigerator a few hours, then dumped the whole thing in the freezer for a couple of days).

    1. Hope you like it, Auntie D!! The beef sat in the marinade for over 24 hours and after it cooked it was completely infused with the flavor of the marinade. So yummy!!
