    • Place all the marinade ingredients in a small food processor/ blender and process until smooth.
    • Combine the marinade with the beef cubes in a bowl and mix well, cover with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour – but overnight is highly recommended.
    • Remove from the fridge at least ½ hour before intending to cook so the meat can get to room temperature.
    • Thread the marinated beef chunks onto skewers, alternating with the green pepper pieces and cherry tomatoes.
    • Cook the skewers on a BBQ/ Grill or under a broiler.
    • Enjoy!
