This is a long introduction,but in order to know what you're eating...In the mid 20th century, Ervin Schimkat of Parker, South Dakota owned the only bar in town. Needing a snack food to feed his customers along with their beer, he remembered his childhood and how much he enjoyed the cheap and relatively simple chislic. Ever since, chislic has been a regular serving in Parker's few restaurants and only bar, as well as the regionally popular at Turner County Fair. Quickly the new popular treat spread with great support to the surrounding towns, including Freeman, Marion, and even as far as Sioux Falls, where it is served in many bars and restaurants. Its fast and easy preparation made it the perfect bar snack for the German immigrants wanting a taste of the Old Country. Schimkat used the word chislic because of his and the dish's German heritage and family tradition of calling it that. Chislic literally means meat on a stick in the Schimkat family. He used cubed mutton because he also had a farm west of town with plenty of sheep to bring in to town.Etymologically, the word bears similarity to schaschlik, a fried dish of German origin, which can be made from beef, venison or lamb. Chislic may have originated as a derivative of shish kebabs, as the pronunciation of the word bears a close resemblance to other items in the same food family. True "bar food!" goes great with beer. Recipe is adapted from the South Dakota Outdoor Campus.Update - Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing is only available "West of the Mississippi" however, there is a copycat recipe on Zaar Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing by strongmindedwoman that is very good!
