2 kilograms chicken, pork, or beef
shashlyk spice (can be bought pre-package)
Cut the meat into chunks. In a large bowl or pot, make a marinade of sour cream, mayonnaise and a generous helping of shashlyk spice. Add the meat, making sure that all pieces are well coated. Let marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, build a fire. Let the fire reduce itself to coals. When the fire is smoldering, put your marinated meat onto skewers. Place the skewers over the coals and slowly cook the meat, so that it acquires a mellow, smoky flavor. Turn the skewers often and keep them moist by basting with the marinade. The shashlyk is done when the meat is no longer pink. Yields 4-8 servings.
