Shish-Ka-Bob

I don't know why I don't cook ka-bobs more often....cause I love them so very much!
I tried a new marinade that will be used many, many more times. I wanted to share it with you;

Ginger-Soy Marinade

1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp freshly grated lemon peel

Place all ingredients in food-safe plastic bag with steak and refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours.

The meat was so tender it was hard to remove it from the skewer without falling apart. I know those little steaks from Sam's are tender and delicious and don't know if the marinade contributed to the tenderness but it was definitely one of the best ka-bobs ever from my grill.

We had a much welcomed relief from the extreme heat today....rain, 75 degrees.....very, very pleasant!
I wish we could have a day like today often.

I think lemon zest wakes up any marinade - those kabobs look delicious!

Amanda said...

Once again you have posted a recipe that looks delicious! I know Solar must LOVE when you come for a visit or when she goes home! Nothing like momma's home cooking!

What do you do to get rid of the "mean greens?"

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

OH! What a delicious combo! Now, I am intrigued by the Sam's steaks? Do you buy them in a box? Or from the fresh meat section? I need to EAT THIS soon!

Solar Powered said...

Amanda, yes it is such a treat to go home and eat in Cafe a la Nanny. Looking forward to a visit next week :) I can't comment on your blog!! That little lion is adorable, oh i wish I could hold him.

Nanny, what steaks are those? Cut detail please.

Ooh, I think I will try this next week when I am home on vacation!

Deb said...

you must of sent your heat here...yummy those look great...

They are in the fresh meat section, usually next to the rib eyes. They are about the size of a filet, pretty thick, usually in a pack of 4. I cut these in half, like butterflying and then cut in pieces for the skewer. I love Sam's steaks, they are always delicious.

As for the Mean Green....I got all I could find off the plants and squashed, yes squashed them then I sprayed with Fungicide that I had just purchased....luckily! In the past I have dusted with seven dust.

I love shish kabob and all the flavors in your marinade, Nanny!

Gypsy Heart said...

Sounds delish! Looks so tasty too...wish I had one right now. You are so lucky to have had rain and cooler temps ~ these triple digits and high humidity are just miserable.

Nanny, these kabobs looks sooooooo good. I love all the flavors in the marinade. You are such a wonderful cook!

We are into the triple digits with no hope of relief. Looking for 102 today and tomorrow. I like the heat, but this is too much!

Farmchick said...

A great marinade recipe.

Betsy said...

yum. I'm like you...love them but rarely make them! Your marinade sounds really good and easy! I think we might have to have these for the 4th! :)

Mary said...

This is a fabulous marinade. I really have to give it a try. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Marguerite said...

Your shish ka bobs look divine! And I love the marinade, too. Thanks for the great recipe! Yes, rain is good.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hello, We are home from our wonderful trip... We loved it --but there's nothing like HOME.

The shish ka bob recipe looks wonderful.... YUM....

We are getting YOUR heat now.. Won't get relief until Monday.

Hugs,
Betsy

Patty said...

Looks and sounds really yummy.

grammy said...

I really have been wanting to eat those...not make them...just eat them...now I think I will have to try (o:

Alison said...

We love them too! I'll have to try the marinade. We like them just as well by putting the ingredients in a grill basket. Ross puts the meat on first then adds the vegetables so everything cooks evenly and NO WORK by skipping the sticks.

I am passing this to some with your permission.. :-) Have a good time.

The marinade sounds delicious! Every time I eat kabobs, I think, why don't I eat this more often?
