Peppered beef skewers with Pommes Sautees

Method

  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water until almost tender. Then drain well and cut in half.
  • To make the sauce, heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and briefly saute ¼ chopped onion with the garlic. Add the brandy, lightly stir and cook to reduce. Then add 1 cup stock with the cream, mustard and ground peppercorns. Mix well and cook until thickened to a sauce consistency. When almost ready, add ¼-½ cup stock and the parsley. Mix well, briefly cook and taste for seasoning.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in another pan and saute the potatoes until crispy, stirring now and again. Then drain on kitchen paper towels.
  • Cut the remaining onion and capsicum to a similar size as the beef and skewer with the beef. Then spray with oil, generously sprinkle with ground peppercorns and cook on a lightly oiled, preheated ridged grill (or BBQ) to the desired degree.
  • Place the skewers on individual plates, spoon the sauce over the top and serve with the potatoes alongside.
