Spiedies, a kebab marinated in an Italian dressing and served on an Italian roll, makes an easy and delicious dinner. 100,000 people go to Binghamton New York for the annual Spiedie fest and balloon rally.
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
Juice of 1 lemons
1 t dried basil
1 t dried oregano
1 t dried parsley
2 t garlic powder
1 t celery salt
1 t garlic salt
1 t red chili flakes
1 bay leaf
1 t salt
1 t fresh ground pepper
4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, lamb or pork, cut into 1 1/2" cubes
1 dozen Italian Hoagie rolls, split
Combine the first 13 ingredients together in a bowl. Put the meat in a non-reactive bowl or a plastic bag and pour the marinade over the meat. Combine with your hands so the meat is thoroughly coated in marinade. Put in the fridge and marinate for 24 hours to 5 days.
Heat the barbecue to medium hot and lightly oil the grate. Remove the meat from the marinade and thread onto metal skewers. For chicken, grill 3-4 minutes on each side. Pork takes a couple minutes longer.
Brush the rolls with olive oil and grill lightly. Serve a skewer of meat with a grilled roll and accompaniments of your choice.
