Another Sunday Lunch

Still in the mood for red meat...I'm not sure if it was the sudden change in the weather or something else but this week i don't feel like cooking or eating anything else than beef.

Talking to a friend this week, she asked me where she could buy some good beef tenderloin to make some beef skewers for a barbecue she will join in the coming weeks.I told her that i used to make beef skewers very often few years ago and for no reason had not made them for a while. I also told her that i would be posting a recipe this weekend.

My Beef Skewers Recipe

1kg of beef tenderloin
1 medium tomato chopped (seeds removed)
1/2 medium green pepper chopped
1/2 medium yellow pepper chopped
1/2 onion chopped
3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon of light soy sauce
1 tablespoon natural yogurt
pinch of salt
black pepper
12 bamboo skewers

Start chopping the vegetables 1/2 inch square pieces and the beef in 1 inch cubes;

Mix the barbecue sauce, soy sauce, yogurt, salt and pepper to prepare the marinate for the beef. Add it to the beef cubes and let if marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 180o C. Next, start assembling the skewers alternating 1 piece of vegetable and 1 cube of beef.

Transfer the skewers to a baking tray and bring it to the oven to cook for about 20 min for a medium-well done beef. The cooking time depends on how you like your meet.

Next, enjoy it!
