Recipe from Weber’s Big Book of Grilling™ by Jamie Purviance and Sandra S. McRae


1. In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients with 1/4 cup water.

2. Cut the beef into 3/4-inch cubes. Place the cubes in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

3. Remove the meat from the bag, reserving the marinade. Thread the meat onto metal skewers, leaving space between the cubes. Allow to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.

4. Grill the beef cubes over direct high heat (450°F to 550°F), with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium rare, turning once.

5. Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil over high heat, and boil for one full minute. Add the peanut butter, return to a boil, and whisk until the sauce thickens. Serve warm with the beef skewers.
