  1. I loved the flavor in this! I used sirloin steak for the meat. Marinated overnight. Thanks for sharing-
  2. A nice mild rather than 'spicy' recipe. I think if making again I'd add a pinch of Chili Powder and maybe use Smoked Paprika over the plain, which would help it live up to its name. Made for our first BBQ of the 2012 / 2013 summer season, though it was still a bit nippy outside. Cooked and reviewed for Aussie / Kiwi Swap Oct 2012
  3. I am quite a carnivore, and my son is even more so. This made 3 skewers for us, and DS ate 2 1/2 . He loved it. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT.
  4. Oh, how I do like me some cow...and chickens and pigs, too, and I never turn down shrimp. And believe me, I never get those confused with, let's say, rutabagas or parsnips, though. Made for ZWT#8~AU/NZ.
  5. I only marinated about an hour or so and did not season with salt and pepper. Just terrific!


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
