Anticuchos are skewers of meat (traditionally beef hearts) or fish that are marinated in vinegar and a paste of ají panca, a Peruvian chile with a deep, woodsy spice. These savory morsels are easy to eat and easier to love, so it's no surprise that they are a popular street food all over the country. Their bite-size nature also makes them a fine appetizer. Here, flatiron steak takes the place of beef hearts; that more accessible cut has a robust flavor that stands up well to the bold marinade and the heat of the grill.
