Beef on Skewers (Beef Kebab)

 

This is the first recipe post in this new year and it’s a simple one. You honestly can’t go wrong with beef skewers however you prepare it.

Beef skewers or beef kebab, beef skewers or even stick meat as some call it is tasty meet on skewers garnished with peppers. It is a popular Nigerian appetiser and so very easy to prepare. There are many ways to prepare this and no wrong way as long as u thread the beef on skewer you have your beef on skewers..lol.

I must say even though some call this stick meat, what I grew up knowing as ‘stick meat’ is a different variation. One being the stick meat I’m familiar with is threaded on toothpick not big skewers like this. I will soon post a recipe to that other stick meat but for now, here is recipe for beef on skewers.
