Wagyu beef skewers with strawberry & pineapple
To make 4-5 skewers of the size above.
You will need;
- 1 Wagyu beek steak – I simply trimmed the big fatty bits out, bashed with tenderiser hammer as it then gets bigger and you get more for you money ha ha, and then cut in to thin strips for placing on the skewer;
- 1 punnet of strawberries – just slice the top off;
- 1 freshly prepared pineapple – simply cut in to fairly big cubes;
- 2 limes for their juice;
- Olive oil; and
- Salt & Pepper.
This really is just too easy.
Take your skewer and feed on a piece of pineapple then take a strip of the meat and sort of thread it on, almost like sewing. You know what I mean? Poke it through, then back again and so on. Then add a strawberry – and repeat the process until the skewer is full.
Lay them all down on a baking taking and douse with the lime juice, salt & pepper and Oliver oil. This make a tasty marinade but also softens the meat – and extracts the flavours from the fruits in to the meat. Leave this for an hour or so.
The on to your sizzling hot BBQ to cook. Keep turning them as you want evenly cooked meat. I did these until there was a nice of charring, so you get that crispy smoky taste, the inside was still nicely medium – well done, plus the strawberry and pineapple had charred and started to ooze their juices. Yep this was amazing, they became almost jam like because of the charring, and the juices seep in to the meat – so you get awesome BBQ flavour from the charred meat and then BOOM this sweet and sour, jammy taste kicks in.
Oh yeah baby – you gotta have a wee go at this one!!!
