  • 1 lb lean beef (sirloin, top round, or another suitable cut), cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 8 wooden or metal skewers


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, ground cumin, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using). Set aside.

  2. Place the beef cubes in a large bowl and pour the marinade over the meat. Mix well to ensure that the beef is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight for the best flavor.

  3. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning during grilling.

  4. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

  5. Thread the marinated beef cubes onto the skewers, alternating with pieces of red and green bell pepper and red onion.

  6. Grill the kabab skewers for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the beef reaches your desired level of doneness and the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.

  7. Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
