Frankly, I believe that the shish kebab should also have a wider audience. This is because there are plenty of occasions where it is actually perfect for it. You can’t imagine just how good shish kebab is until you finally eat it. Just imagine the taste and aroma of roasted beef in skewers, plus the vegetables that are brought along with it. Truly, it’s a dish you shouldn’t miss. And don’t worry about fat. Grilling the beef gets rid of most of the grease, and along with the vegetables, the kebab makes for a very healthy alternative.
Beef Shish Kebab Serves 8, Prep Time: 15 minutes, Cook Time: 15 minutes, Total Time: 30 minutes
2 lbs beef sirloin or tenderloin, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
24 hours prior to grilling, prepare marinade by combining olive oil, vinegar, coriander, garlic, cumin, and paprika. Pour marinade into freezer bag and add beef cubes. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
Remove from refrigerator and thread meat onto skewers that have been sprayed with cooking oil.
Spray grill with cooking oil to prevent sticking. Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.
Serve over a bed of white rice, salad, and pita bread.
