Lime and Basil Beef Kebabs


Beef (try chuck, top sirloin, rib-eye,tri-tip or tenderloin) cut into1-inch cubes 1 pound
Fresh lime juice 1/4 cup
Coconut oil 2 tsp
Grated orange peel (zest) 1 tsp
Garlic cloves, peeled 2
Basil leaves 1 handful
Ground cumin 1 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Black pepper 1/4 tsp
Bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces 2
Onion, red or yellow, cut into 1-inch pieces 1



Place the cubes of meat in a large, sealable plastic bag or a glass bowl. Set aside.
In a blender, combine lime juice, coconut oil, orange zest, garlic cloves, basil, cumin, salt and pepper until smooth. Pour over the meat. Let sit for 1/2 hour at room temperature or marinate for up to two hours in the refrigerator.
In a separate bowl toss the bell peppers and onion with either a little bit of the marinade or a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
While the meat is marinating, heat the grill to high. If you’re using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 1/2 hour so they don’t burn on the grill – you’ll need about 6 skewers.
Skewer the meat and veggies, alternating chunks of meat with bell pepper and onion. Grill with the lid down for 8 minutes, turning the skewers every two minutes.
