Marinated Spanish Beef Kebabs

Serves 4

  • 2kg (4.5lb) beef (cubed)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
  • 250ml (15 fl oz) olive oil
  • 250ml (15 fl oz) wine vinegar
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Thyme or mixed herbs

Place the cubed beef into a large dish and set aside.

Using a food processor, blend together the garlic, herbs, pepper, vinegar, oil and paprika.

Pour the spicy marinade over the beef and turn well so that all the meat is covered.

Place in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.

To make the kebabs, roughly chop the pepper and onion then thread over kebab sticks alternating with the beef.

Retain any excess marinade as this will be used for basting the kebabs while on the grill.

Barbecue the kebabs over hot coals for 10 to 12 minutes turning and basting frequently.

Serve with fresh crispy salad, boiled potatoes, bread and olive oil.
