Haitian Voodoo Sticks

"This isn't for the heat shy. My husband won't get within 3 feet of them but I find them addicting! You can always cut back on the cayenne of course but don't cut too much because they just wouldn't be the same. Marinating time not included."

Ready In:




  • Dissolve bouillon in water. Stir in the garlic, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Toss the meat in the marinade, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat a grill for high heat.
  • Skewer the beef cubes, using 6 to 8 pieces per skewer. Pour the oil onto a plate, and roll the skewers in it to coat them on all sides.
  • Grill the skewers, turning frequently, until the beef has turned light pink, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. DH doesn't step forward and says..."can you make this again"...often...so this is a keeper...We loved the heat...it was moist and tender...delicious! Thanks for posting it...:)
  3. This is like eating candy....once you start you can't stop! Loved the spiciness, but I am a fire-eater! Very tender and fun to eat. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Anna these voodoo sticks were excellent. My dh & I loved them. I marinaded the sirlion overnight, resulting in a spectacular flavor and oh so tender meat. They were lovely and spicy with a slight kick after you had eaten, simply perfect. I served them ontop of mango salsa and green olives with a side of refreshing fruit salad. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
  5. These were awesome on the grill last night and really stole the show at our BBQ! Since I planned ahead, I was able to marinade them all day and the flavor was phenomenal! DH went to the store and bought more steaks so I could make them again!! I'd used more cayenne because I like things really spicy. Made for PRMR.
