Spiedis Recipe

Spiedis Recipe

This is our favorite cookout dish, and it's very good served with a salad. This recipe originated here in my hometown in the 1930's. Our meat preference for speidis is venison, but we use others when it's not available.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2-1/2 pounds boneless lean pork, beef, lamb, venison, chicken or turkey, cut into 1-1/2- to 2-inch cubes
  • Italian rolls or hot dog buns


  • 1. In a glass or plastic bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Add meat and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. When ready to cook, thread meat on metal skewers and grill over hot heat until meat reaches desired doneness, about 10-15 minutes. Remove meat from skewers and serve on long Italian rolls or hot dog buns. Yield: 8 servings.

"I tried it with beef and it was very good and tender. I can't wait to try it with chicken."

"Super delicious! I used chicken and pork. Also drizzled aged balsamic vinegar over just before serving. I served it with couscous and a Greek salad. Great for company!"
