Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year so I was pretty excited when I heard the theme for this weekends Sunday Supper hosted by Leslie at La Cocina. I knew instantly what I was going to share for the #SundaySupper Halloween Party - Steak Bites with Bloody Mary Dipping Sauce! I found this recipe years ago on Foodnetwork from Rachael Ray. This recipe has made an appearance at many of my Halloween Parties. It's super easy to make and is always a crowd hit.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup vodka
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
1 rounded tablespoon prepared horseradish
Salt and pepper
1 1/3 pounds beef sirloin cut into large bite-sized pieces, 1 by 2 inches
Steak seasoning blend or coarse salt and black pepper 6 to 8 inch bamboo skewers
Adapted by Rachael Ray
Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and onions and saute 5 minutes. Add vodka and reduce by 1/2. Add Worcestershire, hot sauce, tomato sauce and horseradish. Stir to combine the dipping sauce and return the sauce to a bubble. Add salt and pepper and adjust seasonings. Heat nonstick skillet over high heat. Coat meat bites lightly in oil. Season with steak seasoning blend or salt and pepper, to taste. Cook the meat until caramelized all over, about 2 minutes on each side.
For a cute serving idea, purchase coffins at your local craft store. Lightly coat the meat and put into the coffin for each guest. Serve the bloody mary dipping sauce on the side to be put into the coffin once opened.
A few Halloween Costumes through the years. My favorite was the year my brother and I went as music stars in the news. I was Amy Winehouse, he was Lil Wayne. It was fun keeping in character all night!
