Caveman Cuisine: Meat On a Stick

Is there anything more primal than skewered meat over a fire?  I didn't think so. 

Marinade Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup light olive oil
3/4 cup wheat-free tamari soy sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp dry mustard
2 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp parsley flakes
2 garlic cloves (smashed)

Marinade Directions:

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.  Reserve a cup of the marinade for basting.  Add meat to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Leave in the fridge to marinate overnight.

Garlic Aioli Ingredients:
(There will be enough for leftovers, so simply seal in a container and refridgerate)

2 large egg yolks
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp sea salt
pinch of white pepper
1 cup flax-seed oil
1 clove garlic (pressed through ricer or finely diced)

Aioli Directions:

Simply whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, and pepper until smooth.  Slowly drizzle in the oil while whisking until the desired consistency is reached.

Kebab Ingredients:
1 lb pork or beef cut into cubes (marinated)
White onion (cut into chunks)
Chopped spinach (organic fresh or frozen)
Tomato (chopped)
Avocado (sliced)
1-2 tsp. light olive oil
Wooden skewers (soaked in water)

Kebab Directions:

Alternately skewer chunks of meat and onion (~3 chunks of meat per stick).  Grill over high heat, turning occasionally for 6-8 minutes, basting with the reserved marinade.

In a grill-safe sautee pan (or iron skillet), sautee spinach in olive oil.

Serve Kebabs over sauteed spinach, drizzle with aioli, and garnish with fresh avocado and tomato slices. 

Yield: Approx 4-5 kebabs
