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)
Bamboo skewers

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.
