Are you looking for an original recipe to cook meat? Here you are these amazing coffee flavoured pork kebabs.
One of the methods for seasoning meat is to marinade it in a flavoured liquid for a certain period of time so that it becomes softer and absorbs all the flavours used.
In this recipe coffee together with brandy and some spices give an intense aroma, very "ethnic" to a kind of meat we easily find in a supermarket. So you can offer your guests or relatives something that is not the same roasted meat as always, but a particular second dish, a bit daring I'd say.
Pork meat is one of the cheapest ones and the originality of this recipe will make you have a success with a little expense!
Don't worry about the four small cups of coffee. If you preserve coffee leftover and keep it in the fridge in a few days you will have the amount you need for the marinade. So you have an original, cheap and leftover saving recipe! Can you asking for more?
When I prepared this kebabs there was a friend of mine that does not like strong flavour and always asks for traditional recipes. So I prepared simpler kebabs for him and my daughters: white wine and rosemary marinade.
If you have enough time you can prepare different aromas and bring to the table various kebabs to satisfy all tastes.
Stefania Bonanni is the authoress. She has sent it to me on a "special" occasion: to cheer me up after a sleepless night with my sick daughters....Thanks Stefania!!!
