1/4 c finely chopped onion
2 tbsp fresh basil or 1 tb dried basil
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 c red wine vinegar
2 lb beef fillet cut into cubesmeasures conversion [+]
Combine the grated onion, basil, salt, pepper and vinegar in a large bowl. Add the meat and toss it in the marinade to coat it thoroughly, then marinate at room temperature for 5 to 6 hours. Toss the cubes about in the marinade every hour or so to keep them well moistened. Light a layer of coal in a charcoal broiler and burn until a white ash appears on the surface, or preheat your kitchen broiler to its highest point. Remove the meat from the marinade and string the cubes on 4 long skewers, pressing them firmly together. Broil 4 inches from the source of the heat, turning the skewers occasionally, until the meat is done to your taste. For rare meat, allow about 10 minutes in all; well-done meat will take about 15 minutes. Slide the meat off the skewers onto heated individual plates and garnish with the scallions, quartered lemon and coriander.
