Top-ranked recipe named "Thai Beef Kabobs"

Share it:

The spicy marinade really adds to the tender beef for a perfect kabob.

"These were astronomical. We marinated beef overnight actually, but that worked for our schedule. I have never tasted kabobs so good. We followed the recipe exactly other than marinating longer than it says. The poster is right: the charring of the edges of the onions and peppers works here. Served With Thai Bok Choy soup and stir fry. EXCELLENT!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 pound beef tenderloin; cubed in 1" pieces
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
2 teaspoons Fish sauce
2 teaspoons Lime juice
1 teaspoon Fresh Basil; chopped
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
1 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ginger; fresh grated
1 ea bell pepper; cut in 1" pieces
1 ea yellow onion; cut in 1" pieces

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

Marinade the beef, pepper, and onion in the remaining ingredients for 2-3 hours. Alternate pieces of the veggies and beef on skewers.

Place the kabobs on a 500f grill for one minute a side, four minutes total. Use oven mitts and tongs to rotate them because this is one hot fire.

TIP: The standard recommendation for bamboo skewers is to soak them prior to use to prevent burning them. Given the heat of the grill for this dish, I like to also wrap the exposed handles with foil.

You might get some charring of the onion and pepper but don't worry, that works here.

Serve with a simple basil rice. I took 2 cups of cold sweet jasamine rice and stir fried it in a wok. I added in 10 basil leaves, stemmed and halved and tossed for a minute longer, to wilt the basil.

Wrapping the skewers with foil in addition to soaking them helps with the high heat of the grill. photo by swibirun swibirun

Position the pieces next to each other on the kabobs but don't press them together TOO tightly. You want the grill heat to get in there. photo by swibirun swibirun

These were FANTASTIC! we marinated the meat in the fridge overnight. Will DEFINITELY make again, but keep in mind it's not an inexpensive meal. Served with Thai zucchini and Shrimp & Bok Choy soup. Fabulous! photo by cristinakj cristinakj

Don't worry if you get a little char on the veggies, that adds to the flavor. photo by swibirun swibirun

WOW Incredibly delicious!!! We tripled the recipe and let it marinate a few more hours and the flavor was divine!! Had it with the Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls appetizer & fish sauce recipe to create one of the best meals we have made this year. Thank you so much for sharing this! Can't wait to make it again! Healthy too!

These were really good! I used a little more pepper flakes (like mine spicy) & instead of kabobs I just cooked in a skillet with a little olive oil. Delicious!
