With the 4th of July practically upon us, I thought you might like this marinade recipe for beef and chicken. Last night I grilled kabobs of beef, red peppers and sweet onions that were eaten along with rice. My favorite tho', is to marinate cubes of boneless chicken and thread it onto skewers with green peppers, sweet onions and big, juicy pieces of fresh pineapple; great if you are expecting a crowd.
MARINADE for beef or chicken
• 1/4 cup canola oil
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
• 2 tablespoons ketchup
• 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
• 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
• 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
Combine all of the above ingredients in a shallow bowl or a zip-lock bag. Add cubed beef or chicken and marinate over-night; although I have done it for as little as 3 hours with great results.
