Jerk-Seasoned Beef Skewers
For marinade, in a medium bowl, whisk together cilantro, vinegar, orange juice, oil, garlic and jerk seasoning. Pour mixture into a large resealable plastic bag set in a deep bowl. Add beef, pepper pieces and onion wedges. Seal bag; turn to coat meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally.Advertisement
Drain meat and vegetables, discarding marinade. On skewers, alternately thread beef, pepper pieces, onion wedges and orange wedges, leaving 1/4-inch space between pieces.
For a charcoal grill, place kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef pieces are slightly pink in the centers, turning occasionally. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place kabobs on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water to cover for at least 30 minutes before using.
