This recipe is from week nine of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Anguilla is my ninth stop. This dish is seasoned in a simple marinade and cooked on the grill or under the broiler.
- 2 lbs beef
- 1 tablespoon salt
- black pepper
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 1⁄2 cup pineapple juice
- 1⁄4 cup wine vinegar (white)
- about 1/2 a fresh pineapple, cored and cubed
- Cube the beef into 1-inch chunks.
- Combine the molasses, pineapple juice and vinegar and marinade the beef chunks in the mixture for about an hour.
- Cut up the pineapple into equal sized chunks (you could also use canned chunk pineapple) and thread onto skewers with the beef.
- Drizzle the remaining marinade over the skewers and grill over a hot flame or cook under your broiler.
These were quite nice, although the contrast between the meat and the pineapple was a bit sharp for me to LOVE the dish. I know it wouldn't be traditional to go adding things to the recipe, but it could have really used an extra something, like onions to help balance out the flavours.
