Beef muchomo is a Ugandan street food, but it can be made at home for any backyard get-together. The inside is very tender and it tastes delicious when eaten with skewered onions.

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, salt, ground cumin, garlic powder, ground cardamom, and cayenne powder.
  2. Add the beef and onions, and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for about 9–10 hours and up to overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill to high heat and the oven to 200°F.
  4. Remove the beef and onions from the marinade, and thread alternately on metal skewers.
  5. Grill the skewers until a crust forms (about 2 minutes on each sides).
  6. Transfer the skewers to a baking sheet, and roast in the preheated oven until cooked through and tender (about 45 minutes).
  7. Serve the beef muchomo with peri peri sauce for dipping.
