Russian Beef Kebabs / Shashlik

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 533


1 1/2 - 2 pounds beef sirloin steaks, boneless or tenderloin tips
1 onion, large, coarsely grated
6 cloves garlic, coarsely grated
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, freshly ground
1 onion, large, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces


1. Trim any sinew and excess fat off the beef, then cut the meat into 1 1/2-inch cubes. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a large nonreactive baking dish. Add the meat and toss thoroughly to coat. Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, at least 4 hours, but preferably 8, stirring once or twice.

2. Preheat the grill to high.

3. Remove the beef from the marinade and thread onto the skewers, alternating with pieces of onion and bell pepper. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the kebabs on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs, until the meat is cooked to taste, 2 to 3 minutes per side, (8 to 12 minutes in all), for medium-rare. Baste the beef with any excess marinade as it cooks, but stop basting the last 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
