Cumin & Onion Marinated Beef


  • 1kg thick Rump or Hanger Steak
  • 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Juice 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seed
  • 1 tablespoon chilli flakes
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus extra for drizzling


  1. Cut the steak into 6 or 7 chunks.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Worcestershire, garlic, lime juice, vinegar, spices, onion and olive oil.
  3. Season meat well on both sides, then place in a flat non-metallic dish or baking tray. Cover with the marinade and chill for up to 1 day.
  4. Bring to room temperature 1 hr before grilling.
  5. Heat an outdoor grill or griddle pan until very hot. Pat the meat dry and drizzle with a bit more olive oil, then season.
  6. Thread 2 thin metal skewers through 2 of the steaks and repeat for the rest of the steaks. 
  7. Grill for 3-4 mins on one side, then turn over and repeat. Let the beef skewers rest under foil for 10 mins, then slice and serve with your chosen sauces.
