Italian BBQ: Grilled Rosemary Skewers of Steak Wrapped in Pancetta & Sausages | Le Marche and Food |

Nothing says summer like a barbecue on a hot summer night! Fragrant rosemary skewers packed with filets of steak wrapped in thinly sliced pancetta and fresh sausages grilled over an open oh my! This is a barbecue Italian-style with spiedini or skewers with anything from fish to meat and/or vegetables. Tonight at the farmhouse it's grilled meat spiedini all the way, with grilled polenta & a garden salad.

On those balmy nights when barbecuing is best, I love it because you're outside standing by the grill and not instead sweating over a hot stove!

Meat: steak wrapped with pancetta (or bacon) , sausages on skewers, you can substitute pork, lamb, shrimp - any cut of your choice for grilling.

  • chili flakes
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
