Beef heart marinated, skewered, and seared over the grill. This is a very tipical and popular Peruvian dish. People line up at the good "anticucherias" (anticucho restaurants) every evening! It takes some work but it is so worth it! I taught myself to make them because I missed them so much! A very special addition to any barbecue party! And the delicious smell will bring over all your neighbors to check it out!
