Brazilian Shish Kabobs

In honor of the premiere of The Amazing Race, MIl and FIL came over for dinner and we wanted to do something special. I searched to see what the first destination was and decided to do a Brazilian theme for fun. We served this with Arroz Branco (Brazilian Style Rice).

Brazilian BBQ Beef Shish-Kabobs
Google… the web site was in Portuguese


1 lb of beef tenderloin
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons of chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 lb bacon
16 wood skewers
salt and ground pepper


  1. Cut beef tenderloin into 3/4 inch cubes. Cut bacon into squares.
  2. Marinate in olive oil, lemon juice, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper for 2 hours.
  3. Soak wood skewers in water for 2 hours.
  4. Assemble beef and bacon on skewers, alternating between beef and bacon.
  5. Grill on bbq as usual.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

This recipe is a keeper, for such a simple marinade it was very very good. My FIL is even considering including it for a tailgate (which says quite a bit with his gourmet tastes).
