Adventures with curry paste

The latest issue of Everyday Food had this great spicy kebab recipe, which we had for Sunday dinner today with some brown rice and a sort of peanut-dressed Asian slaw. Yum.

Spicy Beef Kebabs
1/4 c honey
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp red curry paste (mae ploy)

10 oz beef sirloin cut in 1-inch cubes
1 can pineapple chunks
1 onion, cut in eighths, layers separated

Heat broiler; soak skewers.

Mix all top ingredients into a sauce.

Thread beef, pineapple and onions onto skewers. Place on jellyroll pan lined with parchment or foil. Brush with sauce. (Reserve remaining sauce for dipping, garnishing with sesame seeds or hot pepper flakes.)

Broil 7-8 minutes, until beef is medium and onions begin to char.

And a bonus recipe ...

Pineapple Lemonade
Juice from 1 can of pineapple
1/2 c lemon juice
1 c sugar
Ice and water to make 1 gallon

Stir to combine.

P.S. We've accepted an offer on our condo for $5100 above our asking price. Wow!

Curry paste? There is no curry paste in my mailbox! See how deep my paranoia runs?

Great job on the condo!!

Sorry about this week. I'm sick. Stupid cooties caught up with me, I guess.

Ooh, these look like perfect summer recipes (and with a high of 90 degrees for the past couple days in Phoenix, I guess we're skipping spring this year). Thanks!
