Churrasquinho/BBQ Meat on a Stick
Any meat can be used, but beef and chicken seem to be the favorite. The skewers are so simple to make. Once cooked, the meat is coated in either mayonnaise or a churrasco sauce and farofa flour
1 kg of meat makes 6 portions
1 kg of meat skinned and diced
3 cloves of garlic whole
2 tablespoons of thyme or rosemary
1 tin of tomatoes
2 tablespoons of parsley chopped
3 spring onions chopped
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
To prepare the meat: First of all cut up the meat into bite sized cubes and put into a large enough bowl. Add the cloves of garlic (don’t chop or slice but leave as they are) and the herbs (don’t chop up) and leave to marinate for at least an hour.
To make the Churrasco sauce: Add all the ingredients into the liquidizer and liquidize until smooth. Your sauce is done.
Add salt and pepper to the meat. With your wooden sticks at the ready, start to skewer the meat onto the sticks, packing it close together. Make sure you leave enough room at the bottom so as to be able to hold when eating. As simple as that.
With the skewers of meat ready, put on the BBQ or grill and cook over a medium heat so they don’t cook too quickly or burn. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes, but cook to taste.
