East meets West and more barbecues! This dish is a mixture of two cultures, a savor of Mediterranean and Asian palates. The Greek style marinade adds flavor to the beef which makes it tender and juicy. The sourness of the vinegar and the sweetness of oregano will surely make the taste buds go dancing.
Here is an additional recipe for the barbecue lovers out there.
- 2 lbs beef suitable for cutting into 1″ cubes (London broil, chateaubriand, etc.)
- 6 TBSP red wine vinegar
- 6 TBSP olive oil
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano (Mediterranean, or Greek preferably)
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped very fine or crushed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1. First, cut the meat in to cubes.
2. In a bowl, mix in the vinegar, oil, oregano, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. This will serve as your marinade.
3. Place the meat in the marinade and coat all over.
4. Put the meat in the fridge for at least 90 minutes, and up to 4 hours for more flavor. It is best to prepare it for longer hours so that the flavor will sink into the meat.
5. Take the meat out of the fridge 30-45 prior to grilling.
6. Heat grill to high, clean and oil.
7. Cook for 3-4 minutes for the first 2 opposite sides, and another 1-2 minutes for the other 2 sides.
