Easy to make beef shish kebabs on a platter with salad and mojo verde

So do you call it a Shish Kebab or Shish Kabob because it seems they are exactly the same thing? I grew up calling it a Shish Kebab.

So yesterday I sold you the virtues of Mojo Verde and here it is, draping its deliciousness all over some Beef Shish Kebabs.

The beef is first marinated in just dry rub which I love because dry spices are so easy to keep on hand. Then it’s grilled to taste, smothered in Mojo Verde and happily devoured.

EXPERT TIPS

  • Make sure to soak the bamboo skewers for at least 1/2 an hour before cooking. This will stop them from burning and also help slightly to keep the meat moist inside.
  • Shish kebabs are meant to cook quickly so stick with cuts of meat suited to fast cooking like sirloin, porterhouse and rump.
  • Make sure to get your grill or pan nice and hot before laying the kebabs on top. This will ensure you get a nice 
  • Cut the pieces about 1.5 inches square. This is a good bite size, will brown perfectly on the outside while leaving the inside tender.
