Steak Bites with Bloody Mary Dipping Sauce
Time to share some of our Halloween night menu favorites! This is easy and will add a little class to your finger food favorites. Don't be afraid! Try it!!!! A vampires delight (evil laugh)!
1 T olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 C vodka (Don't freak on me! It all cooks out and the left over makes great paint remover!!!)
2 T worcestershire sauce
2 tsp hot pepper sauce (Like Frank's or Durkee)
1 C tomato sauce
1 rounded T prepared horseradish
Salt and pepper
1 1/3 lbs. beef sirlous, cut into large bite-sized pieces, 1x2 inches
Steak seasoning blend (I like Montreal Steak Seasoning)
Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and onions and saute 5 mins. Add vodka and reduce by 1/2. Add Worcestershire, hot sauce, tomato sauce and horseradish. Stir to combine the dipping sauce and return the sauce to a bubble. Add salt and pepper and adjust seasoning if needed. It's all a taste thing!
Heat nonstick skillet over high heat. Coat meat bites lightly in oil. Season with steak seasoning. Cook the meat until caramelized all over, about 2 minutes each side. Don't get impatient and keep turning the meat...just let it get nice and caramely!
Transfer dipping sauce to a small dish and place at the center of serving table. Or set each place setting with a little cup of sauce. Serve with bamboo skewers.
