“A very simple to make kebab. Low fat and healthy. I like to pour over my Low fat mushroom sauce and serve with a salad for a light healthy meal. Another recipe from my 'Food for the Heart' cookbook. *Note: You can also use little tomatoes, wedges of onion or chunks of red or green peppers for variation if liked.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. After trimming all visible fat from the meat, cut into 2cm wide strips lengthwise.
  2. Cut the mushrooms in halves.
  3. Thread a kebab stick (don't forget to soak these in water before using to stop them burning!) through one end of a strip of meat, followed by a mushroom half.
  4. Fold the meat back over the mushroom and through the stick.
  5. Continue in this way until all the meat has been zig-zgged around the mushrooms using as many sticks as needed.
  6. Grill/broil for 8-10 mins, turning each one frequently.
  7. Serve with a low fat sauce, or relish or pickle.
  8. * These can also be cooked on the barbecue.
