1. Combine all ingredients and marinate the beef in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

2. In the meantime, if wooden, soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.

3. Evenly portion the beef cubes onto each skewer (and optional bell pepper and onions) and cook as desired. Using a cast iron pan over medium heat, allow the skewers to cook for about 2 minutes on each side until reaching medium to medium-well. The skewers can also be cooked on an indoor or outdoor grill.
