These Parmesan Crusted Steak Skewers are the best 20-minute meal! Juicy bites of grilled steak are crusted in salty parmesan cheese and served with a side of fresh Tomato Herb Chimichurri.
Steak Prep Time
First thing’s first, preheat your grill to a medium-high heat of around 375ºF for a three-zone cooking method. We want it to be nice and hot by the time you’re ready to grill the Parmesan Crusted Steak Skewers. The hotter the grill, the better the sear!
Next, place the 2-3 sirloin steaks onto a clean cutting board and chop them up into 1.5″ cubes. Be sure the cubes are pretty similar in size so they all cook at the same rate.
Season the cubed steak generously with oil, salt, and pepper, then divide into three even piles. Skewer each pile onto separate steak skewers, then set the soon-to-be Parmesan Crusted Steak Skewers aside until the grill is hot and ready. If it’s already hot, great! You can get grilling.

Grill Your Parmesan Crusted Steak Skewers
So, now we grill. Add the beef skewers onto the hot grill directly in between the two heat sources. Close the lid and cook for 4-5 minutes. Once they are a little bit charred, flip them over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remember, they don’t need much time. The steak pieces are small and we don’t want to dry them out.
But wait, one more step! We can’t forget the parmesan crust for Parmesan Crusted Steak Skewers, because it’s too good! Just before the steak is cooked through, pull each skewer off of the grill and cover the outside with parmesan cheese. Add the skewers back onto the grill directly over the heat source and cook until they reach an internal temperature of 120ºF.
To finish, pull the steak skewers off of the grill, let them rest for five minutes, then pull the steak off of the skewers and serve with the prepared Tomato Herb Chimichurri.
