After spending a good amount of time in the Middle East this year, I became obsessed with shawarma and kebabs. With a lot of tinkering, I think I finally hit upon a marinade that works with chicken, beef and lamb. —CookOnTheFly
chicken, beef or lamb - cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes (kebab size)
cloves of garlic, minced
onion, finely minced
vinegar (I used cider vinegar)
freshly ground black pepper
red pepper flakes
bunch of scallions, cut into 1 1/2 in pieces
In This Recipe
Combine all marinade ingredients (everything but the chicken, beef or lamb). Add meat and marinate overnight.
Soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes. String meat on skewers, alternating with scallion pieces.
Heat grill to medium. Spray grill with olive oil or grill spray. When hot, place skewers of meat on grill. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side, until done (A little more for chicken, a little less for beef or lamb - you decide).
