J and I got invited to a Customer Appreciation sale at one of the local appliance stores. Really, We spent a pile of money with them last year on a new washer and dryer for the new house, so they invited us to come and spend more money.
We obliged, and bought BBQ accessories. Now we have a reason to grill. Not that we needed a reason before, but still. I have yet to take the grill wok for vegetables out of the box, but I opened this bad boy up today:
I present to you now in honour of the 2-4 weekend how we christened the skewers:
For the Marinade:
1/4 c olive oil
2 Tbsp dry sherry
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
2 cloves garlic, minced
For the Skewers:
1 lb lean steak, trimmed and cubed into 16 pieces
1 red pepper, seeded, cut into 12 chunks
1 small red onion, cut into 8 wedges
1. Mix all ingredients for the marinade well before adding steak cubes. Toss meat with marinade, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
2. Using 4 skewers, thread steak, pepper and onion alternately. (We tried mushrooms, but the double threading put too much pressure on the mushroom and it would crack off. I need to try some other way)
3. Over a hot preheated grill, grill kebabs, turning halfway through.
We'll have more kebab adventure this summer, for sure!
