Mishkaki – Mshakiki

Mishkaki – Mshakiki are delicious skewers eaten in the eastern part of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. This variety is with calf tenderloin and is wonderfully tender. You may want to use other types of meat, such as beef, lamb, pork or chicken instead.

Mishkaki – Mshakiki:

1 kg beef in 2.5 cm cubes

1 lemon, only the juice

1,5 ts sort pepper

1 ts salt

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili flakes

6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 onions, in large pieces

6 tablespoons peanut oil

If you use wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. Mix salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, chili flakes, crushed garlic, lemon juice and half the olive oil. Add meat, onions and peppers, mix well, cover, put it cold and let it marinate for at least two hours, but preferably overnight. Three pieces of meat, the onions and peppers alternately on the skewers.

Brush a grill pan or grill grate with oil. Grill mishkaki (mshakiki) for a few minutes on each side. Grease more oil during grilling.
