Beef Kebabs

Serves 8

Be sure to marinate the beef a few hours before grilling to make it nice and tender.


2 tsp fresh lime juice

2 tsp freshly grated lime zest

2 Tbsp tamari

2 Tbsp fish sauce

4 garlic cloves minced

2 tsp minced fresh ginger

2 tsp brown sugar

2 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp black pepper

2 lbs beef tenderloin cut into 2-inch cubes

3 green bell peppers cut into 2-inch pieces

1 lb fresh mushrooms stems removed

3 pts cherry tomatoes

1 fresh pineapple peeled, cored and cubed

Chopped scallions for garnish (optional)

Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)


In a bowl, combine the lime juice, lime zest, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, turmeric, coriander, cumin and black pepper and stir to combine. In a shallow baking dish, arrange the beef cubes and cover with the marinade. Turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.

Using 16 metal skewers, or soaked wooden skewers, thread the beef, bell peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and pineapple in alternating rows.

Lightly spray a grill pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Grill the beef kebabs for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until seared and cooked through. Garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
