The Correct Way to Make Beef Kebabs - Succulent & Tender Beef Kebabs Every Time!!!

Recipe type: Beef / Steak
 
Beef kebabs more often than not are tough and dry, and quite plainly unpleasant. In today's episode we're looking at a really simple trick that will give you awesomely succulent and tender beef kebabs every time. So we're going to rustle up a batch of the amazing beef wonders.
Ingredients
  • 1.8kg Rump steak, cut 1 inch thick
  • Seasoning of your choice
  • 60g Butter
  • 20 x 8 inch skewers
Instructions
  1. You need to start with a good cut of meat like rump, with a nice thick strip of fat on the edge. Here I have 2 very nice slabs each about 900g or 2 pounds, cut nd inch thick.
  2. You will notice the one side of each piece has a much thinner strip of fat. Cut this piece away, and cut it into 1 inch cubes.
  3. To bard the cubes of meat that don't border with fat we are going to borrow some of the fat from the thick layer on the other side.
  4. Use sharp knife to trim away the fat, leaving only about 5mm or a quarter inch of fat behind.
  5. Cut the meat into 1 inch cubes, then slice the strip of fat into 5mm bits.
  6. Continue with the remaining steak.
  7. To thread the skewers, start with a cube that has fat. Follow this with a slice of fat, then another cube of meat and so on until all of your skewers are assembled.
  8. Every piece of meat will be interspersed with a piece of fat. This is what keeps the meat juicy and tender, and adds tons of flavor.
  9. Transfer the kebabs to a large roasting tin and season them liberally with the seasoning of your choice. Allow them to marinate for at least an hour before continuing.
  10. You can cook the kebabs on your barbecue, in a pan or under your oven grill. You will need medium high heat, and if your barbecuing or oven grilling, remember to baste with melted butter before starting.
  11. I am doing mine in a pan. Heat the pan to medium high and add 60g of butter.
  12. When the butter is bubbling, add the kebabs. You will probably need to cook 2 batches if you're using a pan.
  13. Grill the kebabs for 2 minutes 30 seconds per side, remembering that they have 4 sides... giving you 10 minutes in total.
  14. Remove the kebabs from the pan and serve immediately with accompaniments of your choice.
