DIRECTIONS

  • Trim any sinews or excess fat from the beef; cut meat into 2-inch cubes.
  • In a large baking dish, combine the oil, vinegar, onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, and bay leaves.
  • Add in the beef and toss thoroughly to coat.
  • Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.
  • Preheat grill to high.
  • Remove the beef and bay leaves from the marinade and thread onto the skewers dividing the bay leaves among the kebabs.
  • When ready to cook, oil the grill grate.
  • Arrange the kebabs on the grate and grill, turning with tongs, until the meat is cooked to taste, 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  • Baste the espetadas with any excess marinade, but not during the last 3 minutes.
  • Serve the espetadas on or off the skewers on slices or chunks or Portuguese bread for soaking up the juices.
