I think it was pork, not beef. Greek souvlaki is typically marinated in lemon juice, garlic, oregano and olive oil.

Maybe it was other than beef, I didn't ask. I believe it was beef. From what I read, if it does turn white, it's not harmful.

It was a drive-thru joint long past. It was so simply good.

I think it's called a Greek kabob sandwich or something. It's not a gryo.

Anyways...I sort of want to marinate beef chunks until they turn white like they did.

Edit: I marinated beef for a long time in the fridge once, it turned white. Not that mushy either. I'm thinking of doing this again.

Especially for kabobs using cheaper tougher cuts of beef.

The lemon juice in the marinade makes the pork turn white; you can also use chicken. I've made this many times. Here's a good recipe: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ipe-greek.html

Marinating beef will not make it turn white.

"Marinating beef will not make it turn white".

Are you casting that in stone, GG?

Can we get some Greek relief here?

GG boldy states marinating beef won't turn it white, as I know it will.

I posted a reply advisory post to GG, asking if she's sure she knows all there is to know.

And like I asked...

...is there a Greek in this house?

"...as I know it will."
But HOW do you know?

I'm not Greek, I'm of Polish decent. But I have some Greek yoghurt everyday. Will that count?

I just spent the last ten minutes of my life (that I won't get back ) googling the phrase "beef marinade to turn it white" and variations thereof. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. All my results turn up is that a marinade will turn chicken and pork white, beef fades to gray.

Your emboldened comment says "maybe" and "I didn't ask". So I'm guessing that you're guessing, right? The part I underlined said "From what I read...". You had better luck googling it than I did? Or is that memory from reading something in a book or magazine a while back? If you googled that, I'd be interested in the magic phrase you used to find it. I'd then have to pass my crown to you, since Himself calls me the "Queen of Googling".

IF you ate this a looong time ago, I'm going to guess you're remembering wrong. Trust me, as I've gotten older my rememberer isn't as good as it used to be. I'm afraid the only way to test this is to find Greek marinade recipes for beef and test them. Have fun!

Heh. You have a weird way of saying things, Caslon. Reply advisory post question?

I've done a lot more cooking, and studying cooking, than you have. I can say unequivocally that marinating beef will not turn it white. If you want to interpret that as saying I know everything... well... Okay. Whatever you say
