African Piri-Piri Kabobs
  • 1  pound  sweet potatoes
  • 1  pound  boneless venison, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 2  red sweet peppers, cut up
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  purchased piri-piri spice (see note)

1. Peel sweet potatoes, if desired, and cut into 1-1/4-inch cubes. Cook potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 5 minutes or until slightly tender. Drain; cool slightly.

2. Alternately thread the sweet potato, venison, and sweet pepper pieces on 4 long metal skewers, leaving a 1/4-inch space between pieces. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle generously with piri-piri spice.

Or, make your own piri-piri-style spice mix: In a small bowl combine 1-1/2 teaspoons paprika; 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed; 1 teaspoon ground ginger; 1 teaspoon ground cardamom; 1 teaspoon garlic powder; 1 teaspoon onion powder; 1/2 teaspoon salt; and 1/2 teaspoon round piri-piri pepper or ground red pepper. Makes about 2 tablespoons.
