  1. Dissolve bouillon in water. Stir in the garlic, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Toss the meat in the marinade, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  3. Skewer the beef cubes, using 6 to 8 pieces per skewer. Pour the oil onto a plate, and roll the skewers in it to coat them on all sides.
  4. Grill the skewers, turning frequently, until the beef has turned light pink, 12 to 15 minutes.

We've been making these for over a year now, and just got around to reviewing. They are killer! We make them at least once a month during grill season. Don't change anything. The longer you marinate, the spicier they get. Overnight, and they are hot. Don't serve to anybody scared of spicy food. Who wants to hang out with them anyway?

I always make recipes to a tee first then adjust to my liking. These were good, but holy salt batman. Why do you need any extra salt with 2T of beef bouillon? Next time I'll only use 1t of bouillon to the mix to see how it does.

If you like spicy, try this recipe! Made as written, I gave five stars. Hubby would have given three as he doesn't have as much appreciation for spicy foods. Next time will tone down the cayenne just a hair and put in pitas with cucumber sauce- that'll shut him up...

I entered this in our newspaper's recipe contest. Out of over 400 entries, I was one of 27 finalists. I ended up getting 2nd in the appetizers division. I made short kabobs with only 5 cubes of beef on each, and then stuck them into a voodoo doll made from shaped and baked bread. It was fun. I reduced the cayenne by half and still thought they were plenty hot. One of my family's newest all-time favorites. Great for Halloween or football parties.

I didn't think these would be hot enough for my husband so I gave them a 6 hour marinate time. They were really HOT! Great with onions, mushroom, sourcream and tortillas. I would only suggest that you have to like food that makes you sweat!

Oh my, what a shocker, I thought these were going to be "okay" I wasn't expecting them to be this good, thanks for a great recipe, perfect as written.

Tried this out last night to test for an upcoming family reunion and it's the BOMB! Can't wait to try it out on the family.

I skewered on some green & red bell peppers intermittently along with the steak. I used Ribeye in place of the sirloin. Served with Jasmine Rice (from this site) & grilled pineapple & peaches.
