The smell of smoky meat on the grill is enough to warm you to your very core. Steak on a stick is the answer. Steak on a stick is easy to manage, easy to eat and who doesn’t like steak on a stick! If it’s as cold where you are as it is for me in New York City then you will appreciate the warm Mediterranean flavors I used here. Get some steak, get some sticks and get grilling.

Marinated steak on a stick is a great party appetizer or main course – simple to prepare and loaded with flavor.
2 pounds steak (I used sirloin but pick your favorite cut), cut into 1 ½ inch square pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons oregano (I used fresh dried from my summer garden)
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
4 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper
Your favorite hot sauce
8 wooden skewers that have been soaked overnight in water (or you can use metal)
Aluminum foil to wrap the ends of the skewers
- Place the steak in a bowl with the garlic, oregano, vinegar, olive oil and ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper. Let this mixture sit for about 30 minutes.
- When you are ready light the grill and set it on high. Skewer your meat with 3 to 4 pieces per serving. Wrap the ends of the skewers tightly with aluminum foil to prevent burning if you are not using metal skewers.
- Put the skewers with meat on the hottest part of the grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side to get beautiful grill marks and a perfect sear. Serve NYC street style with a chunk of crusty bread and a shake or two of hot sauce.
