Fig & Beef Kebabs

Add a sweet twist to classic beef kebabs with juicy fresh figs

Change up beef kebabs by adding a burst of sweet fig. Serve with a drink and enjoy the last of the longer evenings at home. I used scotch fillet, but sirloin or rump will suffice.

FIG & BEEF KEBABS

500g beef steak, cut into 2cm pieces
Marinade
2 Tbsp soy sauce

1. Place the steak into a large bowl. Add the soy, honey, garlic, salt and paprika, combining well. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes.

2. On to the skewers place a piece of steak, capsicum, fig, capsicum and steak. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
