Brochetas or Alambres are our Mexican beef kebabs; they are made with a few ingredients that include onion, green pepper, bacon, and beef. They are really easy to prepare and we love to grill them on our small cast iron Hibachi grill. But if you have a gas grill the results are still delicious.
Place meat in a medium size bowl, season with salt and pepper and toss with the vegetable oil.
Preheat the grill to medium-high and lightly oil the grates.
Now thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers, following this pattern: Start first with the onion, then green pepper, bacon, meat, red pepper, and onion. Repeat until all the meat has been placed onto the skewers.
Place beef skewers on the grill and cook until browned. At least 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill, cover with aluminum foil and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with warm tortillas, a spicy salsa, and guacamole.
• If you use the wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least half an hour to prevent burning the edges or just cover the edges with aluminum foil.
