In a large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar. Add garlic, bay leaf, red pepper, thyme, basil, oregano, salt and pepper; stir until well blended.
Place prepared meat in a large re-sealable plastic bag set into a shallow dish. Pour marinade mixture over meat and close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for a least 24 hours and up to 3 days; turn bag occasionally to distribute marinade. Remove meat from refrigerator and let stand in marinade at room temperature for 2 hour; drain, reserving marinade.
Preheat barbecue grill.
Thread 4 to 5 cubes of meat onto each metal skewer. Place onto the prepared hot grill and cook approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until done to your preference, basting with reserved marinade. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
To serve, fold the bread over the contents of the skewer and pull the skewer out, leaving the meat sandwiched within the bread.
Makes 6 servings.
* Use boneless and skinless chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, top round steak, or leg of lamb.
thanks for sharing pop's, when I was younger my sister worked in the Endicott-Binghamton NY area and used to bring spiedie sammies home with her and they were great, tried making them a few times with different recipes but they never tasted the same, i tried the lupos marinade and that was probably the closest, i'll have to give your recipe a shot. now ya got me thinking of taking a ride to Binghamton for some.
Love Spiedies, especially Lamb. I had family in Endicott and as a kid, we got up there a couple times a year. Put a Greek Uncle, an Italian Aunt, together with Lamb and her Spiedie Marinade...I've not had any Lamb that amazing in years! BTW... Make sure to reserve some Marinade to sprinkle on the sandwich. The fresh Punch of Vinegar, Garlic and Herbs, makes, grilled meat, an Award Winning Sandwich...JJ
Thanks for posting this Pops. I am going to bookmark this and give it a go with some chicken and lamb! I’ve seen a commercial version of this sauce at Kroger’s next to the State Fair chicken sauce but never tried it.
