Marinade for my Beef

Last winter Amy at the Ranch Wife’s Slant had a blog post titled Wintertime Ranch Style Shish Kebabs.  It sounded like something J and Iwould like, so I gave it a try.  Yea for Amy, my Cowboy approved! 

I make a half recipe of Amy’s original recipe and decrease the amount of soy sauce to better fit our taste preference.  The first time I made this marinade I used lime juice instead of lemon juice.  Did you know a bottle of sealed lemon juice can go rancid if stored in a cool dry place?

 1/8 C EVOO

¼ C Soy Sauce

¼ C Lemon Juice – I like to squeeze fresh lemons!

1/8 C Worcestershire Sauce

1 Tbs Dry Mustard

1 ¼ tsp Salt

¾ tsp Dried Parsley

½ tsp Black Pepper

1 Garlic Clove – minced

I used sirloin steak and chunked it into cubes for kebabs.  I have also marinated whole steak and grilled them.

Mix all ingredients together and pour over beef. 

I made the marinade in the morning and let the beef soak up the flavors until I was ready to grill for supper. 

When I went to start supper I was disappointed by the famous South Dakota wind.  It was too windy to keep the grill lit and the knob on the propane tank was too tight for me to open.  Wimpy, I know!  I am still trying to figure out how it got turned so tight.  I ended up broiling the kebabs.  They still tasted yummy; thank you Amy for this awesome recipe!
