Shish Kabobs (Shashlik, Barbecue)
This dish is perfectly delicious for an outdoor picnic with family and friends!

  • 2 lb mutton, lamb, beef, veal,  pork, or chicken 
  • 1-2 medium onions
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 4-5 tablespoons vinegar
  • Salt, pepper (to taste)
  1. Cut the meat into small pieces and put in a large pan.
  2. Add chopped onion, salt, pepper, vinegar and/or 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  3. Mix everything, cover the pan, marinate 2-3 hours in a refrigerator. 
  4. Put each piece of meat and onion rings (you also can add mushrooms, green/red pepper, tomatoes) on metal or wooden (bamboo) skewers, so the onions are in between the meat (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to avoid burning). 
  5. Roast the shish kabobs on a brazier (over hot coals, not direct fire) or grill them on a charcoal or gas grill (use indirect heat) about 20 minutes, or until desired doneness. 
  6. Turn the skewers several times for even cooking.
  7. Serve shish kabobs with tomatoes, green onions, sauce of choice, or lemon juice. ENJOY!!
