Afghani Beef Seekh Kebab

This recipe replaces the traditional lamb with beef for a lip-smacking taste. Serve with a squeeze of lime to bring the flavours to life!



  • 1kg beef rump, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 red onions, quartered


  • 200g plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • Juice of 1⁄2 lemon
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1⁄4 tsp ground cloves


  1. Whisk all the ingredients for the marinade then pour over the beef.
  2. Leave in the fridge for 2 to 12 hours.
  3. Heat your grill to high and thread the meat on to metal skewers, adding a quartered red onion in the middle of the skewer.
  4. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes each side (or less if you want it a bit more pink).
  5. Serve with flatbread, vegetable salad and lime wedges.
