Bourbon-Pineapple Glazed Steak and Shrimp Skewers

Last night I grilled some bourbon-pineapple glazed steak and shrimp skewers on my new lime green Weber Smokey Joe.  They turned out great and I had a blast cooking on my new toy.  One thing I want to point out with this recipe is that whenever I’m grilling kabobs with shrimp involved, I put all the shrimp on their own skewer because they cook much faster than the veggies and whatever meat you’re using.  The bourbon-pineapple glaze used in this recipe is so good there is no reason whatsoever to have a serving/dipping sauce on the side with these.  If you choose to include steak then make sure not to overcook it.  When grilling steak chunks, they cook to about medium in just 7-8 minutes, so pay close attention to them!  I’ve included the recipe, pics and the video below.  Thanks and enjoy!

Prep time:  30 min
Cook time: 20-30 min

Ingredients

Bourbon-Pineapple Glaze

¼ cup Bourbon
¼ cup Pineapple Juice
¼ cup Brown Sugar
¼ cup Oil
¼ cup Prepared Mustard
¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
4 0r 5 chunks of pineapple

Add all ingredients to a food processor and puree until you have a creamy sauce (should be a light brown / tan color) then set aside.

Skewers

1 – 1.5 lbs of sirloin chunks
1 lb large uncooked shrimp
2 bell peppers (any color…)
1 sweet onion
Fresh pineapple chunks from your local produce stand

Instructions 

After peeling the shrimp and cutting the peppers and onions into nice sized chunks for skewers, add the shrimp, peppers and onions into a bag or container with some of the marinade and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour.  After that, build your skewers and just toss on your favorite charcoal grill and cook for 20 min or so, making sure to baste them a couple times with the left over marinade and making sure to flip them a couple times.

    This recipe was absolutely incredible. We did it with shrimp and chicken instead and it turned out great. We did a skewers of squash and the sauce went well on those also. This is definitely a keeper.
