Spicy kebabs

Meat on stick! What’s not to love about chunks of marinated meat grilled on a bbq? Absolutely nothing~ ^o^


I never really have a recipe when I marinate my meat, usually it depends on whether I feel like something more Asian (lemongrass, sesame oil, soy sauce combination) or something different.

I looked in my fridge and saw limes, cilantro and I thought that would make a good marinade with some other spices; why not? I did this once before with more or less the same spices (without the cilantro) and it tasted good; so I took some pictures and wrote down what I used so if it worked out, I will post the recipe.

It turned out pretty good. I asked my biggest critic (Meep) and he said it was post worthy. =) So try it out, it is easy and pretty tasty~



You will need:


1 to 1 1/2 lb of beef (cut into 1 – 2 inch cubes)



4 cloves garlic (minced)

1 handful of cilantro (chopped)

1 small lime (juiced – about 3 tablespoon lime juice)

1  1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon tumeric

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/2 cup olive oil



Step 1 – whisk all spices, garlic,  lime and oil.


Step 2 – Massage marinade onto meat and let marinade for 2 – 4 hours


Step 3 – while meat is marinating, remember to soak skewers in water to prevent burning on the bbq.

Step 4 – Prepare desired vegetables for skewers.


Step 5 – Skewer meat and vegetables


(meep decided he wanted only meat on one skewer, so he got only meat~)

Step 6 – Sprinkle salt and pepper as desired.

Step 7 – Grilled on bbq to desired done-ness~




I served this w some simple cilantro rice using:


chicken stock (same amount as you would water)

some salt to taste

and when rice is cooked, chop up cilantro and mix in.
