The marinade which gives this Cumin Beef Kebab recipe its flavor is actually quite simple. But the mere three ingredients: soy sauce, lemon juice, and cumin transform the beef into a taste delight.
Cumin, which comes from a flower like plant, is a popular spice in many cuisines, including Middle Eastern, Indian and Mexican. This recipe is a simple update to the traditional kebab, an ancient dish that began in Turkey and spread to the Middle East.
Unfortunately I had used all my cherry tomatoes the night before, I am sure they're a welcome addition, but we still enjoyed the kebabs and onions atop a bed of couscous without them.
