Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the garlic until minced. Set aside 1 teaspoon. To the garlic remaining in the processor, add the parsley, cilantro, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Pulse until chopped. With the motor running, add the lemon juice, then 1 cup of the oil, in a steady stream. Pour into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate. 
  2. Cut the steak into 1-inch strips. Place in a plastic bag with the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil, the remaining salt, the reserved minced garlic, and a generous grind of pepper. Seal and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes. Heat broiler. Thread the meat on the skewers. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve at room temperature with the sauce.

Quick Tip

Beef
Grass-fed beef is lower in fat and thus cooks faster than ordinary beef. Many chefs and butchers advise cooking it at a lower temperature.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
