Mojo Beef Kebabs

Mojo sauces vary across cultures but tend to share in common olive oil, citrus juice, herbs, garlic, and various spices. This one will appeal to lovers of cumin. For a treat, buy fresh cumin and grind it yourself in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle.

Tip: If you choose to use bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 10 minutes before threading with meat and vegetables.
