How Long to Cook

These Australian grass fed beef kabobs in the oven took 25 minutes to cook. They were medium. Depending on the size of you steak cubes and the strength of your oven, this may vary. Use a meat thermometer to test doneness of meat.

For medium rare, internal temperature should measure 135 degrees Fahrenheit.

Medium steak is approximately 140 degrees Fahrenheit internally.

For medium well, internal temperature should measure 145 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

Well done is over 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

When threading the skewers, alternate between beef and veggies. I suggest threading a cube of steak, then threading 2 veggies then beef again. This allows the flavors of the veggies and beef to intermix.

Many recipes call for soaking the skewers before threading them to prevent burnt skewers. For these kabobs, the oven heat was cool enough to not burn the wooden skewers.

Expert Tips & Tricks

Cut steak into equal sized cubes. This allows for even cooking.

In addition, slice veggies into equal sizes.

Allow steak to marinate for the full 30 minutes. This yields a more tender result.

Use a meat thermometer to measure internal temperature of steak. This prevents overcooking.

How Long to Cook Beef Kabobs in the Oven

When baking beef kabobs in the oven, cooking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of the beef pieces and the oven temperature. I recommend using a meat thermometer to check doneness and prevent it from overcooking and drying out. Meat takes from 20 to 30 minutes to reach a 145F internal temperature.

When beef kabobs are baked in the oven at 375F, the cooking time is 25-30 minutes. If the oven temperature is 400F, kabobs take 20-25 minutes to be done.
