Mix saffron, cumin, anise seed, black pepper, rosemary, lime and garlic in a mortar.
Use a pestle and mix in the oil, vinegar and soy sauce. (If you are anxious about your shirt, then put a plastic bag over the mortar).
Pour the marinade over the meat and rub it into the meat. Let it stand for at least 20 minutes.
Pat the meat dry and put in on the grill.
Tip: The excess marinade can be mixed with tomato sauce.
