These Asian sesame Whole30 steak kabobs are marinaded in a quick and easy Whole30 and Paleo marinade that make the grilled steak kabobs really come to life! It’s a simple Whole30 steak kabob recipe that anyone can whip up, and it’s even easier to grill. I love making my paleo meal prep on the grill this time of year, because it takes a fraction of the time, and saves me on dishes!
You don’t need an outdoor grill to enjoy these asian sesame steak kabobs on your Whole30. You can use a grill pan for the stovetop, a George Foreman, or even just bake them! Of course, I prefer the grill method, but this marinade is so good, I want everyone to be able to use it and make these Whole30 steak kabobs. Most of these ingredients are pretty standard for Paleo Asian cooking, and will be things you’re familiar with if you’ve done a Whole30 before.
Most of these pantry staples I get from Thrive Market because they’re cheaper, but you can grab coconut aminos from Amazon or Whole Foods too. You’ll also need sesame oil, toasted or regular is just fine!
If you’re not doing a Whole30, you can add a tablespoon of honey or coconut sugar to thicken the marinade to become more of a glaze. Alternatively, if you don’t want to go the Whole30 steak kabob route, this marinade would be great on just regular ol’ steaks, or even chicken breasts on the grill! If you’re looking for more marinades, check out my post on 6 Whole30 chicken marinades. It’s a good place to start, and all of those are freezer friendly as well.

This was my first time making kabobs and it won’t be my last! This recipe was amazing. Full of flavor, the steak was tender and juicy, the veggies were perfect – so satisfying! Can’t wait to make it again. ☺️
These are “smack your lips” good! They are juicy, and crispy, and delicious! We made them for the first time on Sunday and were eating them again on Wednesday. Healthy Asian style food is such a difficult cuisine to find, but Bailey nailed it with this recipe!

Haven’t made these yet, so I can’t rate them, but they look really good! We live in an apartment and aren’t allowed to have an outdoor grill, so I’m going to try these in our George Foreman grill next week. I’m starting my 3rd round of W30 on Monday, so I’ve been looking for some tasty new recipes to add to my repertoire. These kabobs look great. 🙂

I’m making up my meal plan for October whole30 and these look AMAZING! Can’t wait to try them! Do you have any suggested sides to complement them?
Cauliflower rice! Or steamed broccoli, you could even sauté the broccoli in some of the marinade 🙂 Or just a baked potato always works 😉 hope you enjoy!
This is so yummy! I absolutely love them and they were a big hit. I’m already planning to make them again.
Awesome!! Thank you so much – so happy you loved them! 🙂
