  • Prep time 35 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken breasts , cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 450 g beef top sirloin grilling steaks , cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 3 oranges , cut in 1/4-inch thick half-moons
  • 1 red onion , cut in 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 4 green onions , chopped

Method

In large bowl, whisk together garlic, orange juice, soy sauce, oil, ginger and cayenne pepper. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade in small bowl; whisk in honey. Cover and set aside.

Divide remaining marinade among 2 large bowls; add chicken and steak to separate bowls of marinade, stirring to coat. Cover and refrigerate, stirring once, for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, soak 16 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes; drain. 

Preheat barbecue to medium-high heat (about 375°F); grease grill. Alternately thread steak and half each of the oranges and red onion onto 8 of the skewers; repeat with chicken and remaining oranges, red onion and skewers. Place kabobs on grill; close lid and cook, turning once, until steak is browned but still pink inside, about 3 minutes per side, and chicken is no longer pink inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Brush with remaining marinade; sprinkle with green onions.

Makes 16 kabobs.
