Quick, nutritious and perfect for a winter’s evening, this recipe is bound to become a new favourite.
From Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) comes a recipe that’s guaranteed to add a little spice to midweek meals – a Scotch Beef PGI kebab.
The cubes of beef for the skewers are crafted from Scotch Beef PGI bavette or sirloin steak, a meat produced in Scotland to some of the highest production and welfare standards.
It has a wholesome flavour that perfectly matches the array of seasoning and spices added to it to make this a light and spicy meal for the whole family to enjoy.
Kirsty Fox, from QMS, said: “Our Scotch Beef steak is known for its superior quality and putting it together with the blend of spices, seasoning and couscous is sure to make this recipe a home comfort not to be missed out on.”

Scotch Beef PGI kebabs
- 600g Scotch Beef PGI bavette steak or sirloin steak, trimmed and chopped into 3cm cubes
- 2 tsp allspice
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 tsp garlic granules
- ½ tsp grated nutmeg
- 1 tsp celery salt

- In a large bowl mix the allspice, smoked paprika, garlic granules, celery salt, nutmeg and rapeseed oil together. Season with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Add the Scotch Beef chunks and mix well.
- Ideally let the marinated beef rest for two to three hours ahead of cooking. Thread the beef and vegetables on to the skewers.
- Alternate pieces of beef and vegetables until all of the ingredients are finished. Grill on a medium to high heat for 12 minutes. Turn the kebabs once while grilling.
- For the couscous: Prepare the couscous by following the on-pack instructions. Mix the chopped coriander into the couscous and season to taste. Serve the couscous in a bowl or plate and place the kebabs on top.
- If using wooden skewers soak them in water for 40 minutes before cooking.
