Ingredients & Cooking


  • 1-1/2 pounds beef Top Sirloin Steak Boneless, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1- inch pieces
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup whiskey or apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Soak twenty-four 6-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain.
