Shashlik is a variety of skewered meat commonly eaten in Central and Eastern Europe.
2 lb fatty pork, lamb or veal
3 medium onions, sliced
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup water
Cut the meat into 2 inch cubes. Put it into a large glass dish. Add the onions, paprika, garlic powder,
cumin, nutmeg, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands, rubbing the spices into the meat.
In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar and water. Pour over the meat. Let the meat marinade in the fridge overnight.
Skewer the meat cubes on to the steel skewers, separating each cube with the sliced onion. Grill shashlik on medium high heat for 30-40 minutes, rotating the skewers frequently. Serve with ketchup, marinated onions, chopped parsley and scallions.
