This savoury marinade of garlic, rosemary and Dijon has a surprising ingredient: anchovies. Don’t skip them, as they add a deep umami flavour to these hearty steak skewers. These kebabs work well as part of a larger menu, but you can also make them for a more intimate meal with a side salad.—Eshun Mott
