Ingredients

200 g rib eye steak, cut into 2 cm cubes
1/2 green peppers, cut into 2 cm squares 80 g
3 slices bacon, cut into 2 cm squares 60 g
1/2 onions, cut into small segments 100 g
12 button (white) mushrooms, whole or halved 170 g
6 bamboo or wooden skewers
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
1 1/4 tsp herbes de Provence 1 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 tbsp white wine [optional] 30 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Dice the beef into 2 cm cubes. Cut the bell pepper and bacon into squares of about the same size as the beef. Cut the onion into small segments. Leave the mushrooms whole, if similar in size as the rest, otherwise, cut them in half. Alternate the meat and vegetable pieces on wooden skewers. Do not press them too tightly and leave about 2 cm empty space on one end of the skewer to facilitate handling.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the skewers and sauté, with frequent turning, for 8-10 min until the meat has turned brown. Lower the heat to 'medium', then season with salt, pepper, and aromatic herbs. Deglaze with the wine (optional), cook 2 min, then cover and cook a couple more minutes.
  3. Place the skewers on the warmed plates, sprinkle with the cooking juices then serve.
