As part of my collaboration with Puretaste Recipes I was tasked with the job of coming up with a great steak marinade for kebabs. I love a good kebab like the next person, but if you search anywhere online there are recipes a-plenty for marinades. After consulting with my team (which consists of my parents and my husband) we were able to brainstorm some great combinations, that haven’t necessarily been “done,” before.
I like to think of this blog, and every recipe I create as a collaboration between myself and some of my favorite people. After all, they are the ones eating what I come up with. Plus, it makes the whole process more fun.
As I’ve advanced in age, one thing I’m definitely sure about in regards to who I am, is that I’m nobody without my family. Even for tasks as simple as dreaming up the next recipe, I enjoy having their input, and I even enjoy being with them in the kitchen. This blog has become more than just a way for me to write about delicious meals, but a way for me to incorporate the people whom I care most about.
This recipe is no exception. Many people know that steak and bourbon are a perfect match, it’s a fact that my husband would enjoy such a combination on a regular basis if health allowed. However, the addition of the chipotle powder and cinnamon adds a spicy sweet flavor that mingles with the bourbon, creating a cacophony of flavors.
Feel free to sprinkle some of the chipotle powder on the pineapple too, it adds a nice heat to the already sweet pineapple. I’d say this recipe is summer in a kebab sized package. Perfect for meal prepping and an ideal way to get the entire family involved in dinner.
