Mishkaki at Home

Mishkaki is Swahili for an East African version of meat skewers, typically beef alternated with vegetables.


  • Beef cubes
  • Green pepper
  • A large Onion
  • Spices: Salt, Black Pepper, Beef Masala and Chili Powder
  • 2 tbsp veg oil
  • Wooden skewers
All you need

The best thing about home-made mishkaki/beef and veg skewers is that the preparation is very simple and relatively quick. Also, I hear some folks recommend soaking the skewers in water overnight so they don’t burn in the oven, I didn’t though and it was okay.

Step 1: Add salt, black pepper, beef masala, chili powder and veg oil to the beef cubes and mix. Cut the onion and green pepper into cubes. Alternate the meat and vegetables on each skewer. Arrange on a grilling tray…


Step 2: Bake at 180 °C for about 20-25 minutes. Depending on how well done you like your meat, you can decide when to take it out…And serve..
