Tender cubes of beef are marinated in yogurt, ginger and Indian spices to create these mouth-watering kabobs. Perfect for throwing on the grill or under the broiler!
Grilled dinners make me so incredibly happy. I love that I can prep dinner earlier in the day with a quick 5 minute marinade and then chill outside grilling on the deck with my husband while our boys run around in the backyard. It is heaven.
One of my favorite secret ingredients for perfectly grilled meat every time is plain yogurt. You can use plain Greek, whole milk, low-fat, whatever. Just don’t buy vanilla by mistake…been there.
Yogurt is the perfect addition to any marinade because it acts and a tenderizer and breaks down the muscle fibers. The result? Tender, juicy meat every time.
To give these grilled beef kabobs an Indian twist, I added lots of warm spices including curry powder, garam masala and smoked paprika. Fresh ginger, fragrant garlic and tangy yogurt tie it all together in this simple yet flavorful summertime meal.
What are your favorite grilling marinades? I’d love to hear new ideas!

- In a large bowl, whisk together marinade: yogurt through cayenne. Add beef cubes and stir until evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
- Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat and thread beef on to kabob skewers. Gently press kabobs with paper towel to remove excess marinade.
- Grill kabobs 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
