acai berry beef skewers

recipe  9th September 2016 by

Hot on the heals of Bobby’s acai berry cheesecake is this incredible acai berry marinade. With ingredients like orange juice, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and of course acai powder, you’ll be in for a tropical beef skewer that will come out top in any BBQ.

oh no!

We're always switching up our product range at graze, and this means discontinuing some so we can introduce others. Our acai powder is no longer available, but this recipe still works very well without it, so enjoy!


  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 60 ml orange juice
  • 1 crushed garlic
  • 800 g onglet steak
  • 1 tbsp acai powder
  • 12 tsp smoked paprika
  • 12 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 romano red pepper


Chop the onglet steak into 2cm cubes and remove any large portions of fat.

Place the steak into a mixing bowl and add the olive oil, orange juice, garlic, acai powder, paprika, cayenne and cumin. Place in fridge and marinate for 2-3 hours.

Meanwhile soak skewers in water for one hour.

Allow the steak to return to room temperature and preheat a pan or prepare your bbq.

Chop red onion and peppers in squares and alternate with the beef on the skewers.

Cook the skewers for roughly 2 minutes on each side or until cooked to your preference.

Serve with a harissa yoghurt (1 teaspoon harissa with 3 tablespoons yoghurt) with toasted pittas and lettuce.
