Canadian Kebabs, Eh?

"Found at joycesfinecookingdotcom/Canadian recipes. Although probably not kid-friendly w/whisky in the marinade, it is a small amount & is partially discarded. It also appears the marinade could be halved & used to fix adult & kid portions. That said, this recipe caught my eye because I thought it would also work well w/lamb meat that is more-favored & far less expensive than beef here in Iceland. Although unusual to pair lamb w/oranges, it still sounded good to me. Think about it - Lamb, oranges, whole mushrooms & onion (my expanded vision, but marinated w/this recipe & cooked on the grill). How could that ever be bad? (Time does not include time to marinate) NOTE: While the whisky is shown as optional, the recipe author made quite a point to say she NEVER leaves it out. Enjoy!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a large re-sealable bag, combine vinegar, garlic, syrup, onions, whiskey, cloves, salt & pepper. Gently add orange chunks.

Step 2

Trim excess fat from steak. Cut into 1" cubes & add to the bag. Seal tightly & refrigerate for at least 30 min (or overnight).

Step 3

Remove bag from fridge & reserve marinade for basting.

Step 4

Thread steak & orange chunks onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Place skewers on a greased grill over med-high heat. Close lid & cook 4-5 min per side or until browned but still pink inside (baste w/reserved marinade at least once during grilling & discard marinade when cooking is completed).

These were great kabobs. I didn't have any oranges and didn't want to wait longer to make them, so I used orange pepper in the marinade instead of oranges. Probably would be a strongly flavor with the fruit, but I still really liked it. I added mushrooms to the marinate and let it sit for 24 hours before grilling. Yum! Really good and easy too.

Nice flavors! I followed the recipe except that I mushed the oranges with the edge of my spoon to release the orange flavor into the marinade. I also decided not to grill the oranges. I was somewhat surprised on the good flavor that the cloves imparted - it really enhanced the beefy flavor! I will be adding cloves to my other marinade recipes for beef! Thank you Twissis for sharing!
