Today's Washington Post has an article in the Food section about a type of kebab I've never heard of before: spiedie. It's beef marinated for up to three days, grilled, and served on Italian bread. Apparently it's an upstate New York delicacy. The article, including some recipes is here:[p]I'm going to have to try this soon!

    BluesnBBQ, I spend a considerable ampount of time in Westchester County, NY where a friend introduced me to the "Spiedie". It was so good that I bought a jar of the Spiedie sauce in New york to bring back south but have not tried it yet on the BGE. The other day I was walking thru my local Harris Teeter (where they no longer sell Maurice Bessinger's Pure Gold Barbeque Sauce but we won't go into that)and noticed that they now sell the same brand of speidie sauce that I purchased in New York.
    You know, this sounds like a job for mini-egg. I'm going to do it. Let us know how yours turns out.

    Bill,[p]Tell us more about that spiedie sauce you picked up. I'd like to try these soon. The wife will be out of town for a week hooking up with kid in TX. I'll have plenty of time to do some experimental cooking and none of it will be low fat hehehe. Spiedies appear to be great for parties.[p]K~G

  • BluesnBBQ,[p]There is also a restaurant review by jane and michael stern (roadfood) in the current issue of Gourmet Magazine (january 2001) about Sharkey's Bar and Grill, Binghamton, NY, the supposed home of spiedies. The article claims that Sharkey's is to Spiedies what Buffalos' Anchor Bar is to Buffalo chicken wings. It says that the bread for a spiedie should be bland, "The bread counts for little in the overall tase, but its blandness is a foil for the meat's zest." [p]I've never had a spiedie, but I'd sure like to try one.

    Then be sure and fill in the second "Link Title" box with a title. You can type in anything there.
    Try it next time.

    Char-Woody,[p]A good lookin' recipe indeed. I plan on getting alot of mileage out of these. When Nature Boy starts playing around with the marinade ingredients and adds his unique oriental flair, the squid in his area might be given a reprieve.[p]K

    KennyG, If'n I do em, I will have to make my own marinate. A gallon of that stuff plus shipping shot my cavalry out of the saddle. Holy Cow!!

    I noticed that these recipes were not done especially for the BGE. What temp do you think we should use and how long should we let them cook? For these 3/4" to 1" cubes, I was thinking about 350 for 15 minutes. Your thoughts?

  • KennyGKennyG Posts: 949
    Wise One,[p]Most consumer gassers can hit 500* or so and I would think the recipe might be optimized for the "masses". What I don't know is whether char marks are desirable. Your idea sounds like a good one but I think I'm going to try 500* in my first attempt and see what happens. Why don't we compare notes afterward? I can probably round up some neighbors to volunteer as tasters and then run several batches at different temps. I'm all excited about these, must be that Egg fever again.[p]Will start marinating a batch or beef/chicken cubes tonite for friday night.[p]K~G
  • BluesnBBQ, and here's another recipe.

    Bill:[p]You can get all the Maurice's you want at a good Mexican grocery store at the corner of Buford Hwy and Chamblee Tucker. I don't subscribe to his views, but like the sauce.

  • Wise OneWise One Posts: 2,645
    the spiedie sauce I have is called "Salamida's Original State Fair Spiedie Sauce". It does not list any of the herbs other than to say "natural ingredients" but it does seem very much like the second recipe that was listed.
