If we were stuck on an island and had to survive on just a few things, Sriracha would be on our list of necessities. At the moment, we have not one, but two bottles in our home and use it in or on everything; soups, marinades, salad dressings, on eggs, mixed into mayo and lots more.

This marinade can be adapted for chicken, pork or vegetables. We made it equal parts of honey and Sriracha, making the marinade a bit sticky. It’s worth it, though. The honey caramelizes when cooking the beef. In addition to honey and Sriracha, we mix in soy sauce and a few spices.
I love turning these marinated beef kabobs into lettuce wraps and add some sliced cucumber, fresh cilantro and sour cream.

Honey Sriracha Marinated Beef Kabobs Recipe
To make these into lettuce wraps, serve the beef kabobs with Bibb lettuce, sliced cucumbers, fresh cilantro and a little sour cream that’s been thinned out with fresh lime juice.
You Will Need
1 pound top sirloin beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 tablespoons pure honey
3 tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
8 wooden skewers
Add the beef, honey, Sriracha, oil, soy sauce, cumin, cinnamon and salt to a resealable plastic bag. Gently massage the bag until the marinade is well mixed and the beef coated. Place the bag onto a plate and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, submerge the skewers in water so they soak.
After 1 hour, heat grill to medium-high heat (or place a grill pan over medium heat).
Divide the beef cubes between each skewer then grill until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and serve.
