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.
