Easy to prepare and quick to cook, our Sweet and Sour BBQ Beef Kebabs are what summer dreams are made of. Sweet from the brown sugar, sour from the vinegar, and an explosion of flavour from the ginger and garlic, will have you wanting to make these for every bbq or camping trip.




No. 1 | In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, and ginger until combined and sugar is dissolved. Add the meat and toss until it’s well coated. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours, and up to 8 hours.

No. 2 | Peel the red onion and cut off the top and bottom. Slice in half lengthwise, then slice again lengthwise so you have 4 pieces. Cut each quarter in half crosswise, so you have about 1 inch square pieces. Separate each layer of the onion.

No. 3 | Using metal skewers, thread two pieces of beef, then a piece of onion and repeat until the skewer is full. Repeat with each skewer. It should make 6 skewers in total.

No. 4 |Preheat your barbecue or grill pan on high. Sear each side of the skewer for 2-3 minutes, basting with the additional marinade as they cook. Once all four sides have nice char marks, remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

No. 5 | To serve, sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
