Things To Grab

  • Large resealable plastic bag
  • Small bowl
  • Charcoal or gas grill
  • 4 (12-inch) metal skewers
  • Meat thermometer
  • Silicone pastry brush
  • Platter, for serving


  1. Pat steak dry. Cut steak into 1-to-1-1/4-inch cubes. Place beef cubes in a large resealable plastic bag.

  2. Combine salad dressing, orange zest and juice, cilantro, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Set aside 1/2 cup of mixture; cover and refrigerate until ready to grill. Pour remaining mixture over beef. Seal bag; turn to coat beef with marinade. Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours; turning bag occasionally. 

  3. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Meanwhile, drain beef; discard marinade. Thread beef, squash coins, and red onion onto 4 (12-inch) metal skewers.

  4. Grill kabobs for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is medium-rare (130 degrees), turning and brushing with reserved marinade halfway through.

  5. Transfer kabobs to a platter. Brush with remaining reserved marinade. Sprinkle with green onion slices and sesame seeds. Serve with orange wedges.
