Fire up the grills and relax, because we are letting another marinade do the work today, even though we are still wearing hoodies in the Midwest in mid-June, really? Summer is coming, and this weekend's recipe is about heat and grilling--either for real or in a grill pan! Plan ahead since the meat needs to marinate for at least 4 hours!
This marinade can be used for steak or chicken since steak is not a college student staple by any means, but on occasion, have everyone pitch in when you see a sale; or, have the house purchase a membership to Costco so that bulk meat, veggies, freezer goods, and staples can be bought at a reasonable rates.
Marinating Dish or Freezer Size Zip Lock Bags
Functional Stove and Grill or Saute pan
Available Grill-charcoal or gas
Bamboo Skewers, soaked in water
2-3 Sirloin (or Chicken Breasts), cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
4 tsp salt
4 tsp pepper
2-4 tsp cumin
2-6 tsp cayenne pepper
3 Tbls brown sugar
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2-3 Tbls honey
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup chipotle peppers (canned) or 1/4 tsp cayenne + 1/2 tsp curry
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1. Wash your hands.
2. Cut steak or chicken into 1" cubes approximately
3. Combine all ingredients from olive oil to honey in a small mixing bowl.
5. Make your dipping sauce by combining the other ingredients and adjust to taste.
6. If grilling, skewer up the kabobs with 5-6 cubes, and grill for approx 5 minutes on each side. (It depends on how well done you like your meat.)
7. If pan-grilling or searing, simply brown the meat in the skillet to your preferred done-ness level.
