Moroccan Inspired Beef Kabobs

Kabobs always say summer to me. This recipe for Moroccan inspired kabobs are delicious and easy to make. I used my very own blend of authentic Moroccan spice blend: ras el hanout. Other goodies on the skewer are sweet onion, mushrooms and  tomato.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs sirloin cubed into 1 1/2 inch chunks
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp authentic Moroccan spice blend ras el hanout
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked pepper
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 12 mushrooms
  • 2 sweet onion cut into chunks
  • 4 tomatoes small, cut into halves
  • 1 5.8 oz couscous box
  • 2 Tbp parsley chopped

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl mix together olive oil, lemon juice, Moroccan spice blend, cracked pepper, salt and cilantro.

  2. Add the cubed beef to the bowl and mix thoroughly then refrigerate for 2 hours. 

  3. Assemble kabobs by alternating beef, mushrooms, onion and tomatoes.
    Tip: If you microwave the mushrooms for about 1 minute they will get slightly soft and less likely to crack when you slide them on the skewer.

  4. Heat the grill to medium high.

  5. Cook the kabobs about 6-7 minutes on each side.  The edges should have a nice char.

  6. Prepare couscous according to package instructions.

  7. Garnish couscous with parsley.

Recipe Notes

If your skewers are large the mushrooms might split.  Microwave the mushrooms for 1-2 minutes on high to soften them before sliding on the skewers.
