    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • Sauce
    • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 120ml fresh orange juice
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Kebabs
    • 1 (450g) 2.5cm thick sirloin steak, cut into cunks
    • 8 long wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 large courgettes, cut diagonally into thick slices
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Method
    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Mash garlic to a paste with salt using a mortar and pestle or flat side of a large knife, then whisk together with orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, cumin and oregano in a bowl.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue to medium-high heat.
    3. Thread the cubes of steak onto 4 of the skewers, leaving a little space between each piece. Put skewers on a baking tray and sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Thread courgette onto the other 4 skewers so slices can cook cut side down; transfer to baking tray. Lightly brush beef and courgette kebabs all over with oil.
    4. Lightly oil the barbecue grate and cook the steak skewers, covered with lid, turning once, about 4 minutes total for medium rare. Transfer to a serving dish; cover with foil to keep warm.
    5. Lightly oil grate again and cook the courgette skewers, covered with lid, turning once, until grilling marks appear and courgette is just tender, 4 to 5 minutes total. Transfer skewers to serving dish. Drizzle kebabs with about half of the mojo sauce; serve remaining sauce on the side.

    I marinated the meat a few hours before I grilled. After supper my family said I should make it again.  -  19 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    These were so good and so easy to make. They disappeared as soon as I put them on the table. I surprised my family with these for lunch. I added some other vegetables to the skewers like tomatoes and jalapenos. I only had thin strips of steak, so I rolled them up after marinating them and then put them on the sticks. Excellent recipe, thank you for sharing it with us.  -  10 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
