    Skewer the steak. If using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes first. Preheat grill on high for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to medium. Grill skewers for about 5 minutes per side to get a nice medium doneness. Serve with the pesto.

More About This Recipe

  • Dress up tender sirloin steak with homemade hazelnut pesto. Pesto is commonly regulated to pasta, but in reality it's insanely versatile and can be used in so many different ways. I like to put mine on steak fresh off the grill. It makes for an Italian spin on the chimichurri sauce that's popular with grilled meats in South America. To switch up my pesto this week, I decided to trade pine nuts for hazelnuts to add a totally different dimension to the sauce. Hazelnuts have a much nuttier and complex flavor that can take your pesto to the next level! Plate up these tender kabobs with the pesto on the side. Or, you could do what I do and apply the pesto with either a spoon or brush onto the steak kabobs when they're fresh off the grill so the cheese and oil soften up and the pesto melts onto the steak.
