Greek Style Beef Skewers Recipe

In my house, these Greek Style Beef Skewers are a staple. Your summer dinner will be complete if you serve them with pita bread and salad.

I love making this ahead of time, and I think it tastes even better the next day after it’s been in the fridge.

Isn’t it true that food on a stick tastes better? It’s fantastic!

With summer just around the bend and grilling season upon us, I figured now would be a great time to share this delicious recipe.

Greek Style Beef Skewers

If you don’t eat red meat, one option is to substitute turkey or chicken for the beef. I believe that if you have a decent seasoning, you have a lot of possibilities.

That being said, you should keep in mind that if you replace beef, you should cut back on the salt because we all know how much burger meat likes salt.

So, if you’re using ground turkey or chicken, use a little less salt.

It can be served with a side salad, on pita bread, or with rice or potatoes. I generally make a large salad and baked potatoes when we just grill. But from time to time I include some mashed potatoes, and mac & cheese. 

On the other hand, there are occasions when all I need is a warm pita or naan with a sprinkling of onion. Nostalgia hits you like a ton of bricks!

Greek Style Beef Skewers

Yield: MAKES 14 TO 16 Skewers
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Resting Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

In my house, these Greek Style Beef Skewers are a staple. Your summer dinner will be complete if you serve them with pita bread and salad.

I love making this ahead of time, and I think it tastes even better the next day after it's been in the fridge. It is always a hit in my house!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. Ground Beef
  • 1/2 onion chopped or use 1/2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup of freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup of freshly chopped oregano
  • 1 tbsp. salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, squeezed

Instructions

  1. Chop onion, and on a drizzle of oil, cook it for 3-4 minutes at medium-high temp. This will help them incorporate better into the meat. You can use onion powder if you prefer that better and skip this part.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but you can keep it covered overnight.
  4. If you're using bamboo skewers, soak them for a bit in the cold water. Using wet hands, shape the meat mixture into ovals, each approx. 1 inch thick; thread each “beef sausage” onto a soaked wooden skewer.
  5. Add the beef Skewers and grill, turning every 3 minutes, until browned and cooked through about 8 -10 minutes, depending on how you like your meat, well done or medium-rare.
  6. Make a salad with vinaigrette and serve it with Greek Style Skewers and Pita bread.
