Honey Sriracha Beef Skewers Recipe

Servings: 8


  • 1 lb top sirloin beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 8 skewers
  • bell peppers and sweet onions, cubed as optional additions to the skewers


1. Combine all ingredients and marinate the beef in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

2. In the meantime, if wooden, soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.

3. Evenly portion the beef cubes onto each skewer (and optional bell pepper and onions) and cook as desired. Using a cast iron pan over medium heat, allow the skewers to cook for about 2 minutes on each side until reaching medium to medium-well. The skewers can also be cooked on an indoor or outdoor grill.
