Easy Citrus Kabobs

Last night I had a pound of kabobs to cook and no energy to go to the grocery store and buy specific ingredients for a marinade. I did, however, have a lemon.

I’ve been on a kick to find light, summer recipes for the venison. When it’s 90 degrees, a stew just doesn’t work. This citrus marinade was very refreshing…the perfect taste for a hot summer night!

Recipe: Venison Citrus Kabobs

Ingredients

  • 1 lb venison, cubed for skewers
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients in a baggie, mix, and marinade in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Put meat on skewers and grill for about 2-3 minutes per side (cook to medium or medium rare, which doesn’t take long with venison).

Quick Notes

Very light and refreshing. I sauteed the onion slices in olive oil, which was a nice side to the meat, and served it all with rice.

Afghan Kabobs with Venison

I love Afghan food…there is something about the spices that just works for me. No surprise, then, that the traditional Afghan kabob recipe works beautifully with venison. I served the kabobs with brown Basmati rice, and arugula salad, and nan bread, which Trader Joes sells in the frozen section. It was simple and delicious.

I found the recipe the recipe with a good old internet search, and modified it a little. The original recipe came http://www.afghan-network.net/Cooking/: “Sephardic Cooking” by Copeland Mark  “600 Recipes Created in Exotic Sephardic Kitchens from Morocco to India” Copyright 1992 Published by Donald I.

Recipe: Afghan Kabobs with Venison

Ingredients

  • 2 lb boneless venison steak, cut into 1-in cubes
  • 3 medium onions, quartered
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cognac, arak, or dry red wine (I use wine)
  • water as needed

Instructions

  1. Mix spices and wine together and pour over venison and onion in bowl.
  2. Add enough water to cover meat. Marinate for 1 to 1-1/2 hrs. This distributes flavors & tenderizes meat.
  3. Put 4 pieces of venison alternating w/onion quarters on each metal skewer.
  4. Grill for 5 to 7 mins, or to taste: rare, medium, or well-done. (Although well-done venison IS NOT recommended.) These can also be broiled.

Quick Notes

If you use bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes so they don’t burn.
