What’s the Shish Mean?

August 3rd, 2008 2 comments


Sheesh, the Shish has a lot of explaining to do, so I’ll let Wikipedia define it below, but here and now the KABOB’s are made with Beef that was marinated in a Chimichurri Sauce.  

Water soaked skewers were laced with a combination of Beef, Onion, Red Bell Pepper, Zucchini and Mushrooms, then grilled on the BBQ.  My favorite Beef for Kabobs is Filet Mignon, Top Sirloin or Rib Eye chunks.  The skewers are soaked in water so they don’t catch on fire.  It makes a difference.

These were made with a tougher meat that wasn’t as good.  I thought an overnight marinade would tenderize the meat enough, but it didn’t.  The Beef basically needed slow long cooking, unlike the Kabobs.

* The Kabobs were served with Saffron Basmati Rice, which is made with Chicken Stock, Saffron Treads, Butter, S & P.
