Skewered Sirloin with Lime Cumin Sour Cream

This is one of our favorite weeknight meals. I’ve made it several times, and it’s a great, flavorful, easy dinner. I usually make the pieces of meat a little bigger than the recipe calls for, and cook it for longer to get the outsides to be more charred while the middle stays moist.
