Grilled Steak on a Stick

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 flavours I used here. Get some steak, get some sticks and get grilling.


900 g steak (I used sirloin but pick your favourite cut), cut into 3 cm 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 favourite hot sauce
8 wooden skewers that have been soaked overnight in water (or you can use metal)
Aluminium foil to wrap the ends of the skewers


Marinated steak on a stick is a great party appetizer or main course – simple to prepare and loaded with flavour.

  1. 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.
  2. 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 aluminium foil to prevent burning if you are not using metal skewers.
  3. 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.
