Have you ever checked out the clearance meat section at the grocery store? Art calls it “grey meat”. Basically, the grocery store marks down by at least 50% any meat that has an expiration date within the next day or two. We’ve picked up some really great steaks this way.
Anyway, a few days ago we were browsing the “grey meat” and came across some stew beef marked down to just over a dollar a pound. It’s been a little too hot lately for stew, but Art said he would love to make beef skewers. Well, beef labeled “for stew” is notoriously tough, so I came up with an awesome (if I do say so myself) marinade recipe.
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
Combine all ingredients in a gallon-size resealable bag. Add beef cubes and allow to sit in refrigerator for up to 24 hours (We let it sit in refrigerator a few hours, then dumped the whole thing in the freezer for a couple of days).
Remove beef from marinade and skewer length-wise on wooden skewers. Barbecue to taste and serve with your favorite side dishes.
