6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces meat and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

These spicy beef kebabs are enjoyed day and night in Peruvian restaurants and at the pushcarts of street vendors. If you live in an area with a large Peruvian community, you may be able to buy whole or ground aji amarillo. If not, use hot paprika in its place, as we did in testing the recipe. We also tried Spanish smoked paprika, which you can find at www.tienda.com.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare the beef, combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Cover and chill 3 hours.

Step 2

To prepare fiery rub, combine 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, turmeric, and parsley.

Step 3

Prepare grill.

Step 4

Remove beef from bowl, discarding marinade. Thread beef onto each of 6 (10-inch) skewers. Press fiery rub onto beef. Place kebabs on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness, turning once. Serve with Roasted Yellow Pepper Sauce.

lutzflcat PLease Try again

To Lutzflcat: I would encourage you to try again...anticuchos are part of a meal not the meal...If you can get large  white corn on the cob or make sweet-potato slices  for the side then you have a start of a meal..anticuchos street-food to enjoy. Try with some other Peruvian main dishes, such as Arroz con Pollo (rice and chicken), Ceviche, Lomo Saltado.... Good luck.

I made this recipe exactly as written with the exception of the paprika. I could not find hot paprika, so I substituted half regular and half smoked paprika. The best part about the meal was the pepper sauce; it was very tasty. I think 1/2" pieces is too small for an entree. I do not think the effort put into preparing this meal warranted the outcome. I thought it was just mediocre and will not be making it again.
