Tangy Jalapeno Peach Beef Skewers


  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed, divided
  • 1 pound beef chuck roast cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 small red onion quartered
  • 2 jalapeños thickly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peaches slightly thawed (for easier skewering)
  • olive oil
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons honey
  • Aluminum foil
  • Wooden toothpicks OR small skewers


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine salt, pepper, chipotle chili powder and half of garlic; shake to combine. Add beef cubes and shake to coat well. Alternately thread beef cubes, red onion quarters, jalapenos and peaches on skewers then rub with remaining garlic.
  • Place skewers on a lightly oiled metal rack or trivet in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until desired level of doneness is reached. Divide arugula equally on dinner plates.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together vinegar and honey; bring to a boil then immediately remove from heat.
  • Serve beef skewers over the arugula, drizzled with the honey sauce.
