Recipe for Smokey Beef Skewers with roast sweet potato wedges and a lime & sour cream dip
1 sweet potato – cut into wedges (1cm)
1/2 lime – zest & juice
1/2 tsp black & white sesame seeds
1 tbsp sour cream
1/4 chilli – deseed & chop finely
150g beef cubes – rinse & dry
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
50g Swiss chard – discard stalks, slice into strips (1cm)
olive oil (from your pantry)
salt & pepper (from your pantry)
tin foil (from your pantry)
Preparation: Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.
Sweet potato: Place on a tin foil lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, mix and spread in a single layer. Roast for 25 minutes until golden and cooked.
Lime: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel to create zest. Cut in half and juice.
Sesame seeds: Place a pan on high heat and dry toast for 2-3 minutes until the white ones are lightly browned. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn.
Lime & sour cream: Mix together the sour cream, lime zest, HALF the lime juice, chilli (if you like a little spice) and season with salt and pepper. You can add more lime juice to taste.
Beef kebabs: Place a pan on medium-high heat. Toss the beef cubes in a little olive oil, salt and pepper and smoked paprika, then thread them onto the skewers. When the pan is hot, add the kebabs and fry for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally until brown all over, but still slightly pink inside. Remove and set aside.
Sesame Swiss chard: Using the same pan on medium-high heat, add the Swiss chard and toasted sesame seeds and wilt for 30 seconds.
Serve the beef kebabs with the sesame Swiss chard and sweet potato wedges topped with a dollop of lime sour cream.
