Total Time 1hour25minutes
1 Outdoor grill either gas or charcoal
3bell peppers, various colorsI love using 1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow or orange bell pepper
1tbspMediterranean Sea Salt
Cut sirloin in 1 inch cubes, add to a large bowl.
Add all seasonings and salt over the beef. Squeeze lemon and add freshly squeezed lemon juice to the bowl.
Add olive oil. Mince garlic and add that too. Mix everything together, cover bowl with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Place bamboo skewers in the a shallow container with water, fully submerged so they don't burn later on on the grill.
Wash and dry bell peppers, cut them in square pieces. Peel the onion and cut in large chunks that you can later add to the skewers. Set veggies aside while you light up the grill and prepare for grilling. I try to get to a surface temperature of 400 degrees F.
Add bell peppers, onions and meat cubes to the skewers alternating to your taste. Leave a little space in between the beef cubes and peppers so the meat can cook evenly.
Grill for a total of 10 minutes, flipping the skewers at about 5 minutes. However, keep in mind where the heat is concentrated in the grill surface. If some skewers are further away from the heat source, they'll take longer to grill so move the skewers around a bit to give all the kebabs the perfect amount of time at grill temperatures.
Serve with salad, tzatziki, sauces, pita breads etc. Enjoy:)
You can replace freshly squeezed lemon juice with 3 ozs of red wine vinegar.
Use coarse Mediterranean sea salt if possible, it makes a great difference in marinating the beef.
While beef is marinating, store the bowl covered in plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
