Popular in Israel and you can use any meat, beef, or lamb. Usually prepared without any veggies on the skewers and best served with salads and pita. Preparation time assumes that the meat has been cubed. Yield depends on how small the meat is cubed
- 1 1⁄2 cups olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 lbs beef steaks, cubed
- skewer, metal but wooden would do but needs to be presoaked, as needed
- For the marinade: Combine all ingredients except the meat in a bowl and mix well.
- Add the meat to the marinade; mix and coat well.
- Marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator; drain liquid and skewer the meat.
- Broil skewers in a preheated broiler for about 7 minutes on each side or until cooked.
This turned out to be a really yummy marinade, though I'd dial back the salt a bit. I didn't marinade for the 2 hours, but about 40 minutes on the counter while I prepared other parts of dinner. We just broiled ours in the oven since it was on anyway. We served with hummus, pita chips, and fresh cut-up veggies. Yummy!
Wonderful! I used lean beef cut into large cubes, which filled 2 large metal skewers. We cut it up afterwards according to our taste, and served it on pita bread with Israeli Salad. It made a fantastic summery meal! Thanks so much for sharing, Pneuma! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.
