Beef Kebabs

Kebabs are a popular part of Middle Eastern cuisine, created by stacking chunks of meat on a skewer. Traditionally, kebabs are then grilled as the word ‘kebab’ actually means ‘grilled meat’ in Turkish. To add flavour, the meat for the kebabs can also be marinated and pieces of vegetables like peppers can also be stacked between the chunks of meat. Try out our Marinated Beef Kebabs on the grill, with this Moroccan couscous side dish recipe.
