  • 2 pounds boneless beef sirloin, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 large onion, peeled and grated


Place the meat cubes in a large bowl. Mix together thoroughly the onion, salt, peppercorns, garlic, and herbs. Combine the olive oil and lemon juice, and stir in the onion mixture. Pour over the meat. Marinate overnight, preferably for 24 hours.

Put the cubes on skewers and grill over hot coals for about 10 minutes, turning once. The meat should still be pink inside.
