Since these skewers are marinated for several hours, the lemon juice will break down the meat and tenderize it. That means you can skip the pricier cuts like filet mignon and ribeye. This beef souvlaki recipe uses a lean and affordable cut of beef top round that is cut into cubes.
Gather your marinade ingredients and cut the beef into 1 1/4-inch cubes.
Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper and mix it together.
Pour the marinade over the steak cubes or add them to the bag with the marinade.
Seal the bag, press out air, and rerigerate for at least 2 hours.
In the meantime, cut the peppers and onions about the same size as the steak cubes.
Thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers, placing tomatoes at the end.
Place the kabobs on a medium-high grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping once.
Serve beef souvlaki with rice, pita, Greek salad, tzatziki, or your favorite sides.
