Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a medium container or resealable plastic bag and add the steak and chicken cubes. Toss to coat, cover or seal, and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours. One to two hours before grilling, combine mushrooms, bell peppers, and red onion in a bowl and pour remaining marinade over vegetables to coat separately. Be gentle while mixing to avoid breaking up onion pieces. If using wood skewers, soak them in water at least 30 minutes before grilling. Thread twelve 10- to 12-inch skewers with alternating pieces of steak, peppers, chicken, mushrooms, onion, and sausage. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium (350°F to 400°F), brush cooking grates clean and lightly oil. (Or set a grill pan over medium-high and brush with oil.) Grill skewers for 10 to 12 minutes, turning over halfway through, until chicken is no longer pink (165ºF). Serve with Chimichurri. Chimichurri In a medium bowl combine 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano, 1 minced shallot, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar, 1 pinch crushed red pepper, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. black pepper.
