Halal Kebab Recipe Step-By-Step Written Instructions
Prepare the halal beef kebabs by purchasing cubed halal meat from the grocery store or by dicing halal sirloin steak.
In a bowl, add the halal beef cubes and season them with garlic powder, onion powder, dry oregano, and a hint of cumin.
Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the seasoned beef cubes and mix well to coat them evenly.
Thread the beef cubes onto skewers* (optional) and place in a skillet.
Grill the halal beef kebabs by preheating your grill to medium heat and place the beef kebabs on the grill and cook them to your preferred doneness. For medium doneness, cook until the internal temperature reaches around 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to rotate the kebabs occasionally to ensure even cooking. Set aside.
Rinse the basmati rice in a strainer thoroughly until the water runs clear.
In a saucepan, combine the rinsed rice with double the amount of water (e.g., 2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice). Alternatively, steam the rice in a instant pot.
Season the rice with cumin, curry powder, and onion powder according to your taste preferences.**
Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let the rice simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
Finally, put the finishing touches on this halal ready-made meal by neatly layering the skewers over a bed of rice*** with sides and finishing it with a halal cacciatore sauce. ****
