Muscovites love to take to the country on the weekends, and when they do, chances are they’ll cook these robust beef kebabs. Grating the onion is a traditional Slavic technique that produces a fuller, richer onion flavor than dicing.


For the Beef and Marinade

  • 1½ to 2 pounds boneless beef sirloin or tenderloin tips
  • 1 large onion, coarsely grated


Advance Preparation

  • 4 to 8 hours for marinating the meat
