Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home --> the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for I'm assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!
From Kikkoman brand soy sauce. Before grilling, this sauce has a strong mustard flavor, but after cooking, it loses a lot of the mustard kick and the flavors blend perfectly. This is a wonderful glaze that doesn't overpower the steaks, it just gives them a perfect bit of flavor. I think adding a little cut horseradish would be a nice addition.
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
This is a variation of a recipe I got from a book that came with my BBQ. I used strip loin steaks and it was fantastic. You don't need any steak sauce to go with it. The taste from the marinade is delicious!
From a cookbook from Cape Cod. It doesn't have sugar so it is good for diabetics. I don't want to lose this with the BBQ season here. The optional ingredients sound good! Prep time is the marination time.
There should be enough marinade for about 2-1/2 pounds of beef or chicken you may double the marinade ingredients but keep the fresh garlic and green onion at the same amount --- the meat needs to come down to almost room temperature before grilling so plan well ahead, also there is a marinating time of 8-24 hours, you may omit the cayenne completely if desired or adjust to suit heat level.
I haven't tried these yet but can't wait to. Found the recipe on another site its from Sovan Boun Thuy, owner Chez Sovan. Ginger can be substituted for galangal if you cant find it. Time does not include the 3 hr marinade. Just a note, i would not omit the kiwi because it has a tenderising effect on meat and will add a subtle flavor that doesnt disturb even if it is not your favorite fruit.
The flank is not the tenderest cut of beef, but it may be the most flavorful. To make it tenderer, I marinate it and slice it against the grain very thin on the bias after cooking it. So what you start with is very thin steak, and what you end up with is large thin slices of char-flavored meat that resembles roast beef. The acid in the lime marinade is very complementary to the char flavor of the meet. Marinated it anywhere from 4 to 6 hours: Any longer than that, and the lime juice will actually cook the steak, leaving you with gray meat. Recipe adapted from Chris Schlesinger Adopted 9/06
I am going through my saved recipes that I cut out of magazines, and this is one of them I thought sounded tasty! For those that like it with a little more kick, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. Note: Time doesn't include marinating time.
Update: I have now made this several times. I just love that the marinade is so quick to make and that I am able to cook it outdoors on the grill, very important here in Florida. This is such a tasty pork chop compared to fried or baked.
This marinade will produce the most tender and not to mention the best tasting steak and it's enough for up to four steaks about 1-1/2-inches thick --- just remember to bring the steaks to almost room temperature before grilling this will relax the meat fibers and make for a more tender juicy steak --- the amounts may be doubled but keep the garlic at the same amount, for best results it is recommended to not substitute any ingredients, do not add any salt to the marinade and do not salt the meat until ready to grill --- this marinade may be used for any cut of steaks.
This recipe comes from my Dad's recipe file. It's a real treat to visit and have Dad make his trademarked, perfectly grilled and seasoned porterhouse steaks! The marinade is so simple that I'm able to do it in 5 minutes before heading off to work in the morning. Enjoy!
I combined my sister-in-law's marinade recipe with my friend's barbecue cooking method. I then submitted this recipe into to a radio station as part of a contest and I ended up winning the grand prize of a Jenairre stove! It's so versatile that it works both with cheap cuts of beef and expensive too. I won't cook beef roast any other way. Enjoy!
I originally had this marinade posted with my Savoury Chicken #60844, but it is so good with all sorts of meats that I decided to repost on its own. Very easy to make up. Sensational flavour. You'll love it as much as I do.
This recipe comes from the brand new cookbook "Kidney Friendly Comfort Foods" endorsed by Isaac Hayes. This dish is not only VERY low in sodium, phosphorus and potassium, it's also very delicious and simple to prepare! As a dialysis patient, I'm always on the lookout for these kinds of recipes and I just thought I'd share!
