Nothing says protein-packed finger food like meat on a skewer. And nothing's better than tender beef marinated with herbs and spices. Enter: Lebanese beef kebabs. Along with the usual favorites of thyme and parsley, which are high in potassium, iron, calcium, and manganese, this recipe also calls for two other great herbs: the bay leaf and mint.


  • 16 oz beef tenderloin
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp mint leaves
