Beef Brochettes au Vin

We had a nice piece of beef and She Who Must Be Obeyed likes brochettes. I have found that making what she likes has many benefits.

I have to admit, I really don’t get brochettes. Why put the meal on a stick when you are having a sit down meal? I do admit they look very pretty and there is more surface area exposed to the marinade.

Regardless, I cut 10 oz of sirloin tip steak into 12 pieces about 1/2 inch thick and an inch long. The thinner dimension allows for the meat to cook before the vegetables char too much.

I mixed red wine, Dijon Mustard, Worcestershire sauce and honey into a marinade. I put the beef in it and let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours.

I removed the beef and reserved the marinade. I boiled the marinade for a few minutes to kill any bacteria that might have transferred from the meat and set it aside.

I mixed pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and salt together and then sprinkled it over the marinated meat. I cut up four squares of white and red onion, sweet peppers and a cut 2 large mushrooms in half.

I slid the pieces on bamboo skewers that had soaked in water in the following order; white onion, beef square, mushroom, beef square, pepper, beef square and white onion.

I had my Weber Genesis Grill preheated with the burners on high. I put the brochettes on and cooked for about 3 minutes a side for medium rare. I turned once during cooking and brushed with the reserved marinade when I turned them.

We served them with some coleslaw and pasta.

The Verdict

While I admit I wouldn’t do brochettes for myself, these were simple, very tasty and looked good. The red wine gives a nice sharp flavour and the other ingredients and rub give it a good complexity that complements the beef.

She Who Must Be Obeyed was pleased which means these will be made again.
