  • 1 pound boneless beef steak, cut 1 inch thick


  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Spiced Bulgur:

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking bulgur
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/3 cup Golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


1 Cut beef steak into 1-1/4 inch pieces. Whisk marinade ingredients in large bowl until smooth. Add beef; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours.
2 Meanwhile prepare Spiced Bulgur. Combine bulgur, water, raisins, orange juice, pumpkin pie spice, cumin, garlic and salt in small saucepan; bring to a boil.
3 Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until bulgur is tender and water is absorbed. Fluff with fork; stir in parsley. Keep warm.
4 Soak eight 6-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Thread beef pieces onto skewers, leaving small space between pieces.
5 Place kabobs on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 6 to 8 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) for medium rare (145ºF) to medium (160ºF) doneness, turning occasionally.
6 Serve kabobs with Spiced Bulgur.
