Citrus Beef Skewers With Grapefruit And Garlic

by Chef Fabio Viviani


  • 2 Tbsp. Bertolli® Classico™ Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice, about 1 grapefruit
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme
  • 1 lb. boneless sirloin steak, cubed
  • 1 lb. cipollini onions, peeled
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes


  1. For marinade, combine Bertolli Classico Olive Oil, wine, garlic, grapefruit juice and thyme in small bowl. Pour ½ cup marinade over beef in large shallow nonaluminum baking dish or plastic bag; turn to coat. Cover, or close bag and marinate in refrigerator about 3 hours. Refrigerate remaining marinade
  2. Remove beef from marinade, discarding marinade. Alternately thread beef, onions, peppers and tomatoes on skewers*. Season, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Grill, turning once and brushing frequently with refrigerated marinade, 10 minutes or until desired doneness.
  • *If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least 30 minutes prior to use.
