Areas all over the country are known for region-specific foods. I used to live in the Greater Binghamton area, also called the Southern Tier of New York state. A very popular food in that area is spiedies. I've never seen them anywhere else. I don't know why they have not become popular in other areas the way Buffalo Wings have. They are incredibly yummy. I remember stopping after work for a container (or 2) of these delicious pre-marinated chunks of meat. I would bring them home and slide them onto skewers, ready for grilling.
I obtained this recipe from the local newspaper in Binghamton many years ago. It calls for lamb, but I've only made them with beef, chicken or pork.
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
3 TBSP dried oregano
1-2 cloves minced garlic
2 TBSP dried basil
2 TBSP lemon juice
salt & pepper
3 lbs of cubed meat (beef, pork, chicken or lamb)
Mix all ingredients together and marinate at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. Thread the meat onto skewers. Broil or grill until done (they don't take very long). Baste while grilling.
