beef and haloumi kebabs

Kebabs make a great change when serving steak and the creamy haloumi just adds to the experience. For the braai or the stove, these are really fanatstic. Beef and Haloumi go so well together, I am surprised you don’t see it in restaurants.

What you need

1kg rump steak
350g haloumi cheese
Big pinch of chopped fresh thyme
Palm full of chopped fresh mint
2 cloves garlic crushed
50ml lemon juice
100ml olive oil

The process

Place your wooden/bamboo skewers in water whicle you prepare the meat so they don’t burn.

In a large bowl place the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and chopped herbs and mix well.

Cut the steak and haloumi into 2-3cm cubes and place into the marinade for about 10-15 minutes making sure that each piece is well coated with the marinade.

Thread pieces of steak and haloumi on the skewers.

In a large pan heat some oil for frying and cook until nicely browned all over. Of course these are great for the braai as well.

Serve them with boiled baby potatoes that have been tossed in some butter, fresh parsley and plenty of salt and a little wilted seasoned spinach.

If you like to braai, try this pork rib marinade.
