Anticucho is a very ancient food dating from the Inca people in the Andes. Particularly in Bolivia and Peru. In Quechua the native language of the Inca "anti kuchu" means eastern cut, since the meat came from the Antisuyu or eastern part of the empire. Beef heart is trimmed of all fat, and cut in pieces, marinated in lemon, oil, aji chili, cumin, garlic, and coriander. Then it is skewered and grilled over coals or flat top. A boiled-grilled potato is placed at the end of the skewer.
