Gene's Spiedie Sauce


Spiedies are a Binghamton (NY) area phenomenon. Originally developed by a local Italian immigrant family, spiedies usually consist of chunks of meat marinated in what is essentially Italian dressing, grilled, and served on bread or a sub roll. The spiedie is such a Binghamton institution that they even have a spiedie competition every year as part of the Balloon Festival. In 1996 they opened a vegetarian spiedie category and we were drafted by Gene's brother to enter. This is Gene's entry.

Combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and maple syrup in a mixing bowl. Add garlic, thyme, black pepper, chipotle pepper, salt and peaches. Mix thoroughly and pour over 1 lb. of firm tofu and allow to marinate for 24 hours. Grill on skewers, and serve in a sub roll.

You may also want to try marinating crimini mushrooms with the tofu.
