1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 medium yellow onion, grated, drained in a strainer
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Build a hot charcoal fire in a grill. In a large bowl, stir together beef,

onions, salt, and pepper. Form 1 tbsp. beef mixture each around the end of
22 skewers; grill, turning, until lightly charred, about 4 minutes.
