  • About

On beautiful skewers, kebabs look sufficiently dramatic to serve at a dinner party. They may need last-minute cooking, but at least there’s a minimum of kitchen preparation time.


  • 675 g/ lb rump steak
  • 4 medium-sized onions


Trim the steak and cut into neat pieces for skewering – try to allow about four pieces of meat per person. Peel the onions and cut in half, then separate out into pieces. Skewer pieces of meat, pushing them close together with onion at either end if they are to be cooked ‘rare’ or separate the pieces of meat and skewer alternating with pieces of onion and mushrooms for meat that’s to be well do
