Steak & Mushroom Appetizer Skewers will be the highlight of your entertaining. Perfect for the upcoming holidays!
I'm not always a patient person. Once I have a craving or set my mind on something, I'd like it as close to now as possible. My other half and my daughter are completely fooled, often praising me for being so patient.
Waiting to be seen by a doctor or even in a checkout line with an armload of new clothes, I smile calmly and wait for my turn. On the outside. I'll spend an hour using the electric lint remover on my favorite sweater and slowly inspect each inch for lint, but on the inside I’m secretly wishing there was a Fiverr gig for tasks like this.
Steak is one of my favorite savory foods and I hate waiting until the main course to enjoy it. So instead of waiting for the main course, this steak recipe is an appetizer. This recipe instructs you to prepare steak while the mushrooms cook, but I've used leftover steak for this recipe. If you grill extra steak one day and make this appetizer the following day, that totally works.
The best part of these steak and mushroom appetizer skewers is enjoying pieces of juicy beef with mushrooms cooked in beer before dinner. Why wait? Let’s start with steak!
Even I can admit patience pays off, but if we can have something we love sooner instead of later, I say let's go for it. Would you agree?
My first time in the kitchen with my mother-in-law was definitely an exercise in patience. She very carefully measured each ingredient and took her sweet time. I watched her scrape the bowl clean, pouring batter into cake pans and using a spatula to make sure every little drop of batter made it into the pan. I tried to hint that she could be done because I had never in my life seen anyone spend so much time scraping a bowl like she did that day. She refused to be rushed. "No waste. We use it all," she said.
She brought up a good point and I resolved to be more careful and a little more patient. On most days I do alright with this resolution. Mostly.
Fans of these skewers, myself included, insist the blue cheese is a must because it brings the mushrooms and steak together with the sauce in perfect harmony. You're going to love these!
