Ingredients

  • 1 red onion (See notes)
  • 60 ml fresh orange juice (1/4 cup)
  • 1 lime
  • 60 ml olive oil (1/4 cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel
  • 1 kg beef rump steak
  • Lemon wedges to serve

Instructions

  • Place the onion (see notes) in the food processor along with the orange juice and the juice of the lime, blitz to a thick paste.
  • Add in the olive oil, garlic, brown sugar, cumin, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, parsley and fennel, then blitz again until well combined.
  • Trim the steak of any thick fat and then cut into large chunks.
  • Place the steak and the marinade into a non-reactive bowl (or large zip lock bag) and marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the beef from the marinade and thread onto skewers.
  • Get your grill (or BBQ) as hot as it will go, then add the skewers and cook for 4-5 minutes turning once until lightly charred.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.

Notes

I like to cut a about a 1/4 of the onion off and save this for my Brazilian Tomato Salad. That way I don't have to start a second onion. The marinade is just as good with a little less onion :-)
