Mojo Beef Kabobs

Last week, I posted about my experience cooking with other DFW bloggers at the Appetite for Inspiration event, hosted by the Texas Beef Council.
I plan on featuring some of the delicious recipes we made during the event.
Today’s recipe is *really* yummy.
The beef is *so* peppery and juicy in this marinade.
This would make a fun, simple dinner to add to the rotation.
Chef Chamberlain explained to us that Mojo (pronounced Mo-ho) is a type of Cuban sauce that incorporates the tangy flavor of oranges and limes.
(We all thought it was mojo sauce, you know, Austin Powers’ style. I agree with Allie from Screwed Up Texan that “mojo” beef kabobs would have been better!)

Thread the beef, onion and lime wedges onto 12-inch metal skewers.

Thread the tomatoes onto separate skewers — you’ll cook those by themselves.
If you’re using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 10 minutes before grilling.

Grill the beef kabobs uncovered for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning once and basting the kabobs with the remaining sauce throughout the cooking process.
