1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard (I've substituted dry mustard in a pinch)
2 T. dried oregano (or if you have a LOT of fresh, use about 6 T. of the fresh)
1 T. fresh chopped thyme leaves or 1 tsp. dried
2 T. fresh chopped parsley or 2 tsp. dried (I tend to use a bit more of the dried)
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 T. fresh chopped rosemary or 1 tsp. dried
Combine ingredients in a small bowl, then pour over your meat and marinade for 1-2 hours.
I use my Food Saver meat marinader and leave it out on the counter for a couple of hours to really get the flavor in the meat. Here I just used some inexpensive stew meat for k-bobs. I don't even really bother skewing it. My husband just throws it in the grill basket to cook.
This entree is wonderful with my Mediterranean Couscous and some grilled vegetables. Tonight, I'm going to grill some onions along with the lovely zucchini we got from my friend's absolutely amazing homestead that we visited today. Thanks for a lovely afternoon, Jan!
