Thai Beef Skewers Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 500 Grams Ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons white onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Cup red onions quartered
  • 1 Cup tomatoes quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups tomatoes sliced
  • 1 Cup red bell peppers sliced
  • 1/3 Cup red onions sliced
  • 2 teaspoons parsley chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Switch to broiler option if available, or place rack on the topmost rung. Grease a baking sheet with oil.
  • Combine beef, onions, parsley, and spices in a bowl; mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Thread an onion quarter onto each metal skewer or thick barbecue stick. Take about ½-cup portions of the beef mixture and shape into logs. Skewer logs with barbecue sticks and reshape. Thread a tomato quarter on each end.
  • Place beef skewers on baking sheet then brush with oil. Broil in the preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until cooked. (Alternatively, you can grill the skewers on a grill pan or a charcoal grill.)
  • Make the tomato and bell pepper salad: Toss all ingredients together. Set aside.
  • Garnish skewers with parsley, if desired. Serve tomato and bell pepper salad on the side.
