We love kebabs, authentic kebabs. We are not talking about the mixed skewers you see at gathering or in the meat counter's cases. I am referring to moist, charred chunks of meat served with vegetables that were given equal attention.
The recipe does produce moist, flavorful meat and a great charred vegetable. It does however not live up to my expectation of Middle Eastern flavors. Good nonetheless!
I have included the marinade recipe below. I will say though that picking up the magazine should be on your to do list!, like now
Lemon and Rosemary Marinade
adapted from Cooks Illustrated
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp of lemon zest
2 TBS of fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1/3 cup of beef broth
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
3 TBS of tomato paste
2 tsp of salt
11/2 tsp of sugar
3/4 tsp of fresh cracked black pepper
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, about 45-60 seconds. Use to marinate meat for 30 minutes to 2 hours and vegetables for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
