Purchase fresh well hung beef fillet sufficient for 8 people. Approximately 200-250 grams per portion depending on how hungry your guests are! (Try to obtain a whole piece rather than individual pieces)
(marinade for 24 hours)
50 ml vegetable oil 150ml orange juice 25ml Worcestershire sauce Star anise – ground if preferred 100ml sherry 15ml chopped parsley Cloves of garlic crushed 10ml chopped marjoram 20g brown sugar (muscovado sugar or soft brown is fine) 1 lemon juiced Freshly ground black pepper
6-8 rashers of sliced bacon (a good quality is essential)
Heat the BarbeSkew grill to medium. Trim the fillet and remove any excess fat. To make the marinade, combine all the ingredients together then add the fillet coating it really well. Place in a sealed plastic container and refrigerate for at least 24 hours prior to use. Turn the fillet in the marinade from time to time.
Remove the fillet from the marinade and wrap the bacon around securing if necessary, with previously soaked wooden cocktail sticks.
Place the wrapped fillet of beef onto one of the BarbeSkew Skewers. Barbecue on a medium heat for 10-20 minutes or until the fillet is cooked, juicy, tender and succulent or to the desired preference. Allow to rest for a few minutes before carving.
Whilst the fillet of beef is cooking on the BarbeSkew brush with the marinade every10 minutes. If required the remaining marinade can be reduced by half on a hob and served with the fillet of beef.
