Peruvian Beef Kebabs with Grilled Corn
Combine garlic, 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, chile powder, cumin, oregano and 1 teaspoon salt in a shallow dish. Add beef; stir until well coated. Let stand at room temperature, stirring frequently, for at least 15 minutes or marinate in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.Advertisement
Preheat grill to medium-high. (No grill? Preheat broiler to high and follow the broiler variation for Step 4.)
Microwave potatoes on High until almost tender, 1 to 2 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2-inch slices. Toss the potatoes, onion, 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Thread the beef, potatoes and onion alternately onto four 12-inch skewers. Coat corn with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Grill the skewers and corn, turning once or twice, until the vegetables are tender and charred in spots, 6 to 8 minutes total. Serve the beef skewers with the corn. (Broiler variation: Place skewers and corn on an oiled broiler pan or a wire rack set on a large baking sheet. Broil until starting to brown, 3 to 6 minutes per side.)
Make Ahead Tip: Marinate beef in the refrigerator (Step 1) for up to 4 hours.
Equipment: Four 12-inch skewers
Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
