  1. Anyone out there have a recipe for the shashlik sauce as found in schnelly's?

    For those who aren't aware, it's meat on a skewer (lamb or beef?) with onion/peppers/mushroom in between and left to simmer in a pot of sauce for hours (seem to remember the longer it had been in there the better the taste & softer the meat).

    I had a try a while back (used gravy with a bit of garlic & paprika), and although it was ok it wasn't the same. Just started thinking about it today again and I'm drooling already!

  3. try to google it spelled schaschlik , spelling in german, different recipe all together
  4. Very good point! My spelling was coming up with middle eastern recipes (dry marinade with none of the mouth-watering sauce). Just didn't look the same.

    -2 inch cubes
    1 c Cooking oil
    2 ts Lemon juice

    lemon juice, salt, pepper, bay leaf, dill, garlic, and celery. Shake well
    and pour over the lamb. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 6 to 8
    hours or overnight, stirring occasionally. On each of 4 long skewers, thread
    lamb, tomato, onion, and green pepper; repeat, using 4-5 cubes of lamb on
    each skewer. Grill shashlik over medium coals 12-16 minutes, turning once.
