The idea of this recipe is to keep it simple. Beef is marinated with lime juice and onion and barbecued. Serve with pita.
My husband's family make kabob by omitting the lime juice and marinating the meat in a cup of yogurt mixed with one minced onion. I also add a pinch of dried mint. We grill these with onion wedges and tomatoes and serve it with Persian rice. - 03 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used a cheap cut of beef for this recipe and I think it was a mistake. Using a filet would have produced a much more tender result. It was delicious none-the-less. - 08 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
So *that's* how you marinate it! Second time around, I alternated cherry tomatoes and shallots between the pieces of meat. Getting the extra skewers lead -- counter-intuitively -- to a healthier meal. This is because a skewerful of meat is a deceptively large portion. The additions also improved the presentation and flavor. Next time, I will add some fresh green chilli peppers to the overnight marinade. - 24 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
