This recipe for Lime and Basil Beef Kebabs is so delicious that almost everyone will love it! Especially those on ketogenic diet. Give it a try!


  • 1 pound of beef (try chuck, top sirloin, rib-eye, tri-tip or tenderloin) cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel (zest)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 handful of basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 onion, red or yellow, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. Place the cubes of meat in a large, sealable plastic bag or a glass bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a blender, combine lime juice, coconut oil, orange zest, garlic cloves, basil, cumin, salt and pepper until smooth.
  3. Pour over the meat. Let sit for 1/2 hour at room temperature or marinate for up to two hours in the refrigerator.
  4. In a separate bowl toss the bell peppers and onion with either a little bit of the marinade or a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  5. While the meat is marinating, heat the grill to high. If you’re using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 1/2 hour so they don’t burn on the grill – you’ll need about 6 skewers.
  6. Skewer the meat and veggies, alternating chunks of meat with bell pepper and onion. Grill with the lid down for 8 minutes, turning the skewers every two minutes.
