Who likes steak?? Actually, it doesn’t really matter whether you eat meat at all, this is such a versatile recipe. It can easily be swapped out to meet vegetarian and even vegan guidelines if you wish.

We don’t have steak often, but when we do I try to come up with some creative ways to serve it. This recipe took a little planning due to the marinating time, but it was still so easy and SO flavorful! It was worth the wait.

I served this with some quinoa, fresh corn, and of course, some avocado. While I did this in the oven on a grill plate this time, it’s probably even better on a grill. Hope you guys enjoy!


Steak Skewers:
1.5 pounds chicken breasts, chopped into small chunks (sub chicken, pork, or even tofu!)
1 green pepper, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 red pepper, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1/2 yellow onion, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1/2 red onion, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1.5 – 2 cups large pineapple chunks
Salt to taste
1-2 tsp Garlic Pepper Seasoning
1-2 tsp Chipotle Seasoning

*See below marinade for instructions

4 Chipotle chilis in adobo sauce
1 cup either honey or maple syrup
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 TBSP coconut aminos

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined

Season chopped steak with salt, Garlic Pepper Seasoning, and Chipotle Seasoning. Transfer steak and vegetables to a large zip top plastic bag and pour in 1/2 of marinade (more if needed to cover ingredients). Save remaining sauce for brushing on skewers during cooking.

Place bag in the fridge and marinate for at least two hours, or overnight. Longer is better!
When ready to cook, place marinated steak and vegetables on skewers in a repeating pattern. Discard bag with used sauce.
If grilling, preheat grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates. Cook skewers for 10-12 minutes, turning every 3-4 minutes or until steak is cooked to your liking. Brush with remaining sauce during cooking.
*If baking, it’s best to use a cast-iron grill plate. Preheat oven to 350. Brush the grill plate with oil. Cook skewers for 17-20 minutes turning every 8-10 or until steak is cooked to your liking. Brush with remaining sauce during cooking.
I had enough for about 7 skewers with these measurements. You could easily swap some different veggies on these as well. The marinade is really what makes this so don’t be shy about it!
