Pomegranate Skirt Steak Kebabs



  • For the Pomegranate and Parsley Relish:
  • 2 cups pomegranate seeds
  • 2 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • For the Kebabs:
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds (1 kilogram) skirt steak, cut into 3-inch (8-centimeter) pieces


  1. Make the pomegranate and parsley relish: In a medium bowl, stir to combine pomegranate seeds, parsley, lime zest and juice, and oil. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Make the kebabs: In a medium bowl, whisk to combine pomegranate molasses, honey, mustard, oil, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
