Beefy Kebabs

As it is BBQ season, here is a dish I put together for my wife. It is made with cubed beef, and is grilled over charcoal. It is marinaded ideally overnight, but any time over an hour will do.


  • Beef 300 g cubed
  • Green Pepper 1
  • Tomato Passata 2 Tbs
  • Soy Sauce 1 Tbs
  • Garlic Powder 1 tsp
  • Honey 1 Tbs


Cut the beef into 1 inch cubes and place into a bowl with the passata, honey, soy, and garlic and mix well.  Leave to marinade for a minimum of an hour or so, but over night is best (in the fridge).  Be sure to let the meat recover from fridge temperatures for about 15 minutes before cooking (the remaining prep will take some of this time). Chop the pepper into 1 to 2 inch pieces.  Place the meat onto metal skewers (two cubes then a pepper piece, then repeat until skewer is 80% full (don’t over fill or pieces may drop off the end).

When grill is ready (grey coals if using charcoal, or 10 -15 minutes if using gas) place the grill rack at a medium height above the heat source. Lay the skewers across the bars and let cook for 3-5 minutes, then turn.  Continue the cook and turn process until all sides are well browned.

If there is any marinade left in the bowl, you may want to brush this on about half way through the process.

Remove from skewers. Serve with pickled cabbage, salad, and garlic sauce or garlic mayonnaise.
