Mojo Beef Kebabs

Cubes of steaks are threaded on skewers with lime and onion then grilled to perfection. A sauce of citrus, herbs and spices provides the finishing touch.

Total Preparation time: 40min


2 slices of beef Top strip loin Steak boneless, cut into cubes 1 inch thick
1 tsp. coarse grind black pepper
1 large lime, cut into 8 wedges
1 small red onion, cut into 8 thin wedges
1 container cherry tomatoes

Mojo sauce:

1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. dried oregano
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. minced garlic
3/4 tsp. salt


1. Whisk Mojo Sauce ingredients in a small bowl. set aside
2. Cut beef steak in 1 inch thickness pieces, season with pepper
3. Alternately thread beef with lime and onion wedges on to skewers. Thread tomatoes separately on another skewer. { Here I used bamboo skewers. If so, oil them with olive oil so that the meat will smoothly be threaded onto a skewer}
4. Take a tawa-pan, heat it on a medium flame. Place 3 skewers at a time onto the pan so that the meat touches the surface of the pan. Pour 1 tbsp of  sauce for each skewer and close with a lid for 4 minutes and turn over the skewers and again close with lid for 4 minutes. { I am doing this, to give a little crunchiness to the beef.
5. Now grill the beef kebabs and the tomato kebabs drizzled with sauce, covered for 15 to 18 min over medium heat ie 180 deg Fahrenheit.
6. Serve Kebabs drizzled with sauce.
