I was quite ecstatic when a good friend of mine invited me over to her house to cook for her son’s 1st year birthday. I jumped at  the offer and decided to prepare a unique dish that will suit the loving summer weather.

Beef Berbeaceau…….. 

When I remember the aroma and colourful sight of a mouthwatering beefy-sticky dish, I do think of  tantalising homemade  BBQ,  with smoking coals, flammable and hot grill whereby an individual or many people stand around a flammable haze happily  fanning the grill with a hand fan or thick paper. Basically, the grill consists of wire grates placed over the coals which hold the skewers of properly seasoned barbeque.

In the time past, I thought that BBQ’s meat was a special type of meat but I was wrong…… The truth is that beef barbeque is nothing more than grilled pieces of boneless beef or skinless chicken knitted through a wooden skewer.

However, before knitting the meats through the skewer, the meat ought to be seasoned and marinated for few hours so as to give it that tasty and juicy aroma. Moreover, thickly cut onions and bell pepper are knitted together with the meats.


I prefer to coat the meat with peanut butter as this helps the meat to remain fresh and juicy internally, even though the outside is crispy charred. Kudos to my mummy, who thought me this little trick.

So I present to you my own version of beef barbeque and I hope you will find it interesting.

      Many thanks for your comment and thanks for visiting my blog.

  • I never thought of skewering beef and grilling it, usually it’s just pork and chicken. This would be a good alternative. I wonder what part of the beef should be used.

    • Ceemee you can skew and grill beef. The recipe is super easy and comes out super tasty.

      You can use any part of the beef but preferably the boneless parts.

      Thanks and glad to see you here.

  • This is what Mommy suggest me to do – adding peanut butter to the marinade.

  • The beef barbecue looks so delicious! I must agree that marinating the beef for longer periods would make it tastier. I would love to try your barbecue recipe! I’m sure my family would love them too!

    • Thanks Rozelle, yes marinating the beef for longer time makes it tasteful. Please do try the recipe and I am sure your family will enjoy it just as mine does each time I make it.
