Cut the onion into cubes 5-6 millimeters in size, and chop the garlic into small pieces.

Step 3: prepare the bell peppers.

Then we remove the stalks from sweet salad peppers, gutting them from the seeds, rinse, dry, put on a cutting board and cut into slices or cubes long and wide in 2.5-3 centimeters.

We send them to clean dishes, pour them with vegetable oil, lemon juice and season with mustard. We mix everything with a tablespoon, cover the vegetables with polyethylene and put in the refrigerator until use.

When the meat and pepper are infused, turn on and preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Then we install a special wire rack on the bottom of the non-stick pan and, using a baking brush, grease its rods with a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Then we collect a little ordinary flowing water into a small oblong plastic container, dip the bamboo skewer into it and keep them in the liquid 10-12 minutesso as not to burn during baking.

Following the resulting meatball, we put a couple of slices of sweet pepper on a wooden stick, alternating them in color if desired. Then again comes a meat ball and a few slices of vegetable.
We act until all the ingredients are over, leaving the edges of the skewers 1-1.5 centimeters free space. Then we lay out still raw kebabs on a greased grill, comfortably settled on a baking sheet, we tighten them with food aluminum foil so that there are no cracks, and proceed to the next step.

Step 6: bake the meat kebab.

We check the temperature of the oven, if it has warmed up well, set the baking tray with the meat miracle on the middle rack and bake the dish for 20 minutes. Then gently remove the foil from the kebabs and brown them even 10-15 minutes.
As soon as the balls are covered with a golden crust, we put on the kitchen gloves and put the baking sheet on the cutting board, previously laid on the kitchen table. Carefully lay ready kebabs in portions on plates and serve them to the table.

- if desired, the lower baking sheet can be covered with foil and only after that install a wire rack on it, so you will save yourself from unnecessary dirty dishes;

- the set of spices is not essential, put any that season dishes of meat or poultry, for example, sage, marjoram, thyme, turmeric, rosemary, caraway seeds, as well as red, white or allspice;
