Beef or Lamb Kabobs Marinade

This is a tasty and easy marinade for beef or lamb kabobs. You can marinade meat and leave in the fridge overnight in a big Ziploc bag or you can start to grill it i as soon as in one hour and thirty minutes. For beef  kabobs I always use Tri-tip (trimmed)and  wood charcoal/ chips for grilling.. This particular recipe was made for a big crowd and  I used about 7-8 pounds of beef. Serve with bread and fresh onion salad.
7-8 lbs trimmed  beef tri-tip cut into 1 ¼ inch cubes or lamb
1 onion
1 bunch of cilantro
2/3 cup  ”Chaka’s Mmmmm Sauce”
2/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. Cumin powder
2 tbsp. Paprika
3 tbsp . Grill Mates Montreal steak seasoning
2 tbsp. Garlic powder or garlic with herbs seasoning
1 tbsp.salt
1 tsp. black pepper
½ cup oil
3 limes or lemon squeezed ( you can also use red wine vinegar,balsamic vinegar or red wine instead)
Onion Salad:
2 onions sliced in rounds
5 pieces of cilantro chopped
2 tbsp. Oil
2 tbsp. Vinegar ( preferably white balsamic vinegar)
pinch of salt
black pepper
Combine all the ingredients using a blender or food processor. Place meat in a large zip lock bag. Pour the marinade, close the bag tightly and mix well. place it in the fridge if you plan to grill next day or for 1 hour  at room temperature if you will need to grill it right away.
Mix all the ingredients well. serve on top or bottom of the grilled kabobs.
