South Dakota's Own! Venison, Lamb or Beef Chislic

"Ervin Schimkat of Parker, South Dakota owned the only bar in town. Needing a snack food to feed his customers along with their beer, he remembered his childhood and how much he enjoyed the cheap and relatively simple chislic. Ever since, chislic has been a regular serving in Parker's few restaurants and only bar, as well as the regionally popular at Turner County Fair. Its fast and easy preparation made it the perfect bar snack for the German immigrants wanting a taste of the Old Country. Schimkat used the word chislic because of his and the dish's German heritage and family tradition of calling it that. Chislic literally means meat on a stick in the Schimkat family. Chislic may have originated as a derivative of shish kebabs, as the pronunciation of the word bears a close resemblance to other items in the same food family. True "bar food!" goes great with beer. Recipe is adapted from the South Dakota Outdoor Campus."

    Since I doubt I'll be able to find the Dorothy Lynch french dressing is it that strange red stuff some people call French dressing or is it the good old fashioned Orange stuff?
