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
