Beef Kabobs

Marinated and flavored with peppercorns, bay leaves, lemon juice, garlic and curry, this is our favorite Beef Kabob recipe.

I’m always confused on whether I kabob, kebob or k-bob. Most of the time I safely skewer  as to not commit a culinary faux pas. Consulting, kabob seems to be the norm and I found we can use all “a’s” and kabab or throw in a c and cabob.  However we spell it, I’m very fond of “small pieces of meat or seafood seasoned or marinated and broiled, often with tomatoes, green peppers, onions, or other vegetables, usually on a skewer”.

When I first started my blog, the reason for the project was to share recipes with friends and family, and to cook through my database and compile a final collection of bests and favorites. For example, I wanted to take the time to compare the five different beef kabob recipes that I had saved over the years, come up with a favorite and delete the impostors.

I’ve had this recipe for a long time, and it’s a combination of a couple of different marinade ideas put into use when I didn’t have ingredients to complete a recipe. Ad-libbed versions  sometime turn into wonderful creations. I love the end flavor result and also the visual side of these skewers. Bright orange peppers, dark glossy cubes of beef separated by fresh green sticks of fragrant onions.

With curry as an ingredient, this is a natural served over rice, but for this meal we chose sauteed asparagus and black beans seasoned with cumin and jalapeno.

      oh no, don’t tell me you’re on a “soft food” diet. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying lots of ice cream. :)

      I’ve been on sort of a kabob kick lately. Mostly all kinds of things combined with Chicken and I’m trying to use up some of those sauces on the fridge door. :)

    I don’t care what you call them, those look delicious! I still remember the first time I tried them and it was at my aunt’s house in Denver on vacation. Love the green onions and the marinade sounds so good. Those sides have got my attention, too – what a gorgeous photo!

        Sorry – I was in Texas for 8 days with no wireless and haven’t slowed down since I got back.
        And yes, I did have an aunt and uncle that lived there when I was little. They have both passed, now.

          Oh goodness, I did see that you told Nancy you were going for a wedding. Did Aaron get married? Can’t wait to hear all about that.
