The Cookbook Challenge Week 18: Garlic and Mustard Beef Skewers

Beef Skewers

Summer is still lingering on, temperatures are still in the low thirties. With the Cookbook Challenge being “barbeque” we decided to have a simple barbeque lunch in our backyard. The lunch was not anything special – just the four of us and the electric health grill. Our electric grill is now the barbeque substitute as our four burner bbq was put away in storage since it’s too big and is a pain to clean.

I always tend to marinate meat with asian flavours but thought I’ll try something different this time. I decided to do a garlic and mustard beef skewers to make use of the wholegrain mustard which we got at the “Breakfast on the Bridge” event.

When I see the word mustard always reminds me of the yellow mustard which I don’t really like. I don’t think I have ever had wholegrain mustard before. This particular brand was very, very mild. I feel the need to double the amount to get more flavour. I’m really liking wholegrain mustard now.

My skewers was a little dry compared to the picture in the cookbook as I did not add the red wine vinegar, but did not substitute it for anything else since the mustard already has vinegar.

I really like this marinate on beef and I think I would do it again.

    This looks absolutely tasty! Great idea to use the mustard you got – I am sure it would have added lots of flavour.

    Yes, wholegrain mustard can be mild, and even a bit sweet sometimes. I love the idea of bbq-ed skewers!
