  1. In a food processor or blender, process all the sauce ingredients until smooth. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours.
  2. In a medium bowl, using your hands or a spoon, combine the kabab ingredients. Divide the mixture into 12 portions. Shape each portion into an oblong patty on the end of a 6-inch skewer. Transfer the skewers to a large plate or baking sheet.
  3. Lightly spray a grill pan or large skillet with cooking spray.
  4. Cook the skewers for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is no longer pink and the beef juices run clear, turning on all sides for even browning. Transfer to a serving platter.
  5. Spoon the sauce over the skewers or spoon it into a bowl for dipping.
