Note: + 15 mins soaking & 5 mins resting time



  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) white wine vinegar
  • 2 x 500g Coles Australian No Added Hormones Beef Diced
  • 1 large red capsicum, seeded, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lime, zested, juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, seeded, finely chopped
  • 4 Coles Plain Naan Bread
  • 1/2 cup (130g) Coles Hommus Dip
  • Flat-leaf parsley or coriander leaves, to serve
  • Toasted pine nuts, to serve
  • Lime wedges, to serve



Combine the onion, cumin seeds and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside for 15 mins to soak. Drain.


Meanwhile, thread beef and capsicum onto 12 small metal or soaked bamboo skewers. Combine the oil, lime zest, lime juice, garlic and chilli in a small bowl and brush all over the skewers.


Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Cook the skewers, turning, for 6 mins or until the beef is cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest.


Cook naan on the grill for 1-2 mins each side or until lightly charred and heated through. Spread 1 tbs hommus over each naan. Combine the remaining hommus and 2 tsp warm water in a small bowl until smooth and runny.


Arrange the skewers and onion on a large serving platter. Top with the parsley or coriander and pine nuts. Season. Serve with the naan, hommus mixture and lime wedges.
