Kebabs à la Gadaffi

Postby grisell » Wed Feb 23, 2011 3:52 pm

I named these after Moammar al-Gadaffi, who has shown some evidence of megalomania lately. This alludes to the size of the kebabs. Also, the red, green and white on the kebabs could be interpreted as the Italian flag (Libya was once an Italian colony).

For two persons (big eaters, otherwise 4-6):

1 kilo tender lamb, trimmed weight
400 g unsmoked cured fat belly bacon, sliced (Gadaffi would have used lamb fat :wink: )

Marinade:
1 lemon, juice of
100 ml red wine (Gadaffi would have used grape juice :wink: )
3 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, in thin slices
2 cloves garlic, in thin slices
1 tbsp mixed herbs (e.g. oregano, thyme, rosemary, savory)
2 bay leaves, crushed
1 tbsp sumac, crushed
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp salt
Black pepper

Wedges of onion
Pieces of green and red bell pepper

Marinade lamb and pork for three hours. Place on skewers alternating with pepper and onion.

Skewers draining and ready for the grill. They weigh about a kilo each.

On the grill, frequently brushed with the remaining marinade. Gadaffi would have used an outdoor barbecue :wink: .

Served with baked potatoes, tzatziki and a simple hot tomato sauce (tomato purée, water, harissa, sumac, salt, pepper and olive oil)

I have a simple taste - I'm always satisfied with the best.

andre
if the mediation with chavez proves true to form, i suspect the colonel will remain in some sort of power. therefore, beware, very ware, of retaliation. you may be fatwa-ed. perhaps you will be mailed some C-4 disguised as sauage casings. if that happens, you can really make some "bangers."
note to all: this is humor... humor, as was andre's original post. it seems someone took all of this seriously and has already tried to complain to the moderators. jeez: lighten up. :D

Hi Chorizo Kid,
it was meant to be humorous. I am sorry it didn't come through. Personally, I believe he is a total jerk. He has been keeping Italy on its knees under the threat that he would unleash an uncontrolled immigration through the Mediterranean. Italy built virtually all the major roads and other relevant infrastructures throughout Lybia and Gaddafi had the nerves to ask for war damages. So Italian taxpayers had to pay again in order to be excused for having already paid in the past. As per forum rules I cannot say what I would use those skewers for ...
Regards
Massimo
