A42 Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, August 30,1072 Tasty kabobsfor low-cal barbecue By ALICE DENHOFF Who can resist the pungent drifts of flavor-filled smoke which rise from the family barbecue on a lazy, hazy summer Sunday afternoon? For those on low-cholesterol, low-fat diets, however, the traditional spareribs and fat- marbled steaks present a problem, because, unless specially prepared, they are forbidden fare. The best method of handling this circumstance, so that the dieters aren't deprived of one of summer's most delightful joys — the barbecue — is to select with care the very leanest cuts, trim them scrupulously of visible fat, and in the barbecue sauces, use imported olive oil, which is free of additive cholesterol, and is low in saturated fat. Some of the most popular barbecue dishes are the shish kabobs, so that olive oil from Mediterranean lands gives the authentic touch Boneless lamb, cut from the leg and thoroughly trimmed as it is cubed for the skewers starts a trio of recipes geared to those on low-fat, low cholesterol regimens. First: LOW CHOLESTEROL BARBECUED SHISH KABOBS 2 pounds well-trimmed lean boneless lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes Salt and pepper '.! cup olive oil 'v teaspoon crumbled oregano 1 clove garlic, chopped Juice of 2 lemons 3 green peppers, seeded and cut into 1-inch wide strips 12 whole mushrooms 1 can (1 pound) whole boiled onions, drained 3 tomatoes, cut into wedges Place lamb in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix olive oil, oregano, garlic and lemon juice. Pour on meat. Let marinate for 1 hour. Drain meat and reserve marinade. Spear meat and vegetables onto 6 heatproof skewers. To barbecue, place filled skewers over gray coal, 6 inches from heat and broil 5 minutes on each side, brushing with marinade several times during cooking. Serve on rice. VKAL CHOI'S, MEDITERRANEAN SAUCE 6 loin veal chops, fat trinunt/d, !'.) inches thick Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 large onions, chopped 1 garlic clove, chopped 1 cup catsup Juice of 1 lemon 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed, undiluted 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 'v teaspoon pepper '; cup sliced pitted black olives Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper; place in single layer in a well-greased shallow baking pan. Heat olive oil and saute onions and garlic until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer 5 minutes. Cool and pour over chops. Bake, uncovered in 350 degree F. oven 1 hour or until chops are lender. Serve chops with pan juices spooned over them. Chicken is one ot the most popular meats, whether prepared indoors or out under the sky. Here is a remarkably fine sauce guaranteed to enhance barbecued chicken and turn it into a chef's triumph Rocky Flats, a nuclear weapons production plant near Dtn- ver, was completed in 1953 at of $44 million. CHICKEN BARBECUE SAUCE 1 cup olive oil ^ cup dry Vermouth '2 cup dry white wine 2 medium onions, chopped 1 tablespoon A-l sauce 1 tablespoon dry mustard '.4 teaspoon rosemary : 4 teaspoon thyme V4 teaspoon marjoram 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper Juice of 1 lemon Sauce should be mixed and used for marinade ahead, preferably overnight to blend and bring out the flavor. The remaining sauce may be saved, stored in the refrigerator and used for future barbecues. Better have some copies of the recipe at hand, because there are pretty sure to be requests for same, unless you would rather keep the mystery sauce a mystery! Spaghetti with olives cheese When you want a rangetop main-course dish, consider serving spaghetti with sliced ripe olives and grated Parmesan cheese. Adding ripe olives to the pasta is a fairly new idea and gives delightful results. Preface the spaghetti dish with a soup (hot or cold) and accompany the pasta with a mixed salad. For the salad use several kinds of greens—romaine, escarole and chicory are a good combination—and add cucumber and tomatoes. If the cucumber is large and seedy, peel it and slice in half lengthwise and with a teaspoon scoop out the seeds; now thinly slice the remaining cucumber and it will be ready to add to the salad. SPAGHETTI WITH RIPE OLIVES AND CHEESE 1 package (8 ounces) thin spaghetti '4 cup butter 'c cup grated Parmesan cheese '-j cup drained canned sliced ripe olives 2 tablespoons minced parsley Cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain in a colander; return to clean cooking pot. Add butter; toss until butter melts; add cheese, olives and parsley and toss again. Serve at once. Makes 3 to 4 servings. Note: If you like garlic flavor, crush a clove of garlic and add it with the butter. VENTURE INN RESTAURANT FAMILY NITE AIL YOU CAN EAT FRIED CHICKEN DINNER tfirj. BinstM.
