Guest Recipe – Brazilian Style Beef Kebabs

This guest recipe blog comes to you from Phil at


I am so hooked on kebabs. Doesn’t matter about the meat, whether it is beef, chicken, pork or fish, I just can’t get enough kebabs.

This Brazilian Style Beef Kebab is fantastic. Using the Brazilian BBQ Spice Rub, gave this kebab a fantastic flavour. The smell from the marinade was unbelievable. I was so excited about this cook the night before due to the smell.

The marinade certainly didn’t disappoint and packed quite a punch both in terms of taste and spiciness.

The rib-eye was lovely and tender but also very juicy. Doing it for 6 minutes cooked the meat medium to medium-well, so if you prefer your steak a little less well done just reduce the cooking times. Personally, with kebabs, I prefer the meat cooked medium, whereas with steak I will have it medium rare.

When I cook kebabs I typically follow the method below. I find doing this produces great results each time.

  1. Marinate the meat for at least 8 hours and preferably overnight
  2. Cook the kebabs using Russian Skewers
  3. Do not overcook the meat

I really am really loving the rubs from The Smokey Carter. Really distinct flavours that do not get lost during the cook.


  • 1 Thick Cut Rib-eye Steak
  • 2 Tbsp Brazilian Spice Rub from The Smokey Carter
  • 2 Tbsp Lizano Salsa
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Salt


1. Mix the Brazilian Rub, Lizano Salsa, Olive Oil and Salt into a bowl and combine, mixing well.

2. Dice the Rib-eye steak 4cm cubes, trimming off some of the excess fat. They don’t have to be dead-on 4cm but I like large chunks of meat as I think they stand up to the cooking better. Add the beef to the marinade and mix well. Place in the fridge for at least 8 hours.

3. About an hour before you want to cook remove the meat from the fridge and skewer. Cook for around 6 minutes turning halfway through. This will cook the meat medium to medium-well so if you like your kebabs less well done reduce the cooking time.

4. Remove from the BBQ and serve with salad and some flatbreads (or pittas).
