Beef skewers

Can you remember I showed you the recipe for making a delicious harissa? It’s been a while but this recipe actually belongs to this one. Delicious moroccan spiced beef kebabs. Fantastic on the grill outside in sunny weather but for lack of sunshine you can also use an indoor grillpan or griddle. Works well too.. 😉 I made these indoors and loved them. The one downside are the onions as they just don’t cook through in the short period of time you can have them on the gril without burning them.

The recipe comes from the book A month in Marrakesh from Andy Harris
