Peggy Bustamante


¼ c oil
1 medium onion, cut into wedges (squares)
4 slices thick bacon
1 pound beef cubes (on the small side)
Salt and pepper
Metal skewers
½ -¾ c catsup
1 T curry powder
½ t Worcestershire sauce
¼ t paprika
These amounts are all estimates

Thread beef, onions and bacon on metal skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a pan big enough to accommodate the skewers and brown the skewers on all sides. The meat should be cut thin enough that the cooking process cooks the meat and the bacon/onions at the same rate. Remove skewers from the pan and top with the catsup/curry sauce. Good over rice.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Irmgard, Franz Hollweg’s wife. Franz was a Captain in the Mid America Club and is a charming man. Irmgard has since passed away. This is a very popular street food in Germany and we really didn’t get a recipe, just a description.

We cooked this a lot when Marcy would come to stay with us in the summer. Her description of how to cook this meal is to:
• Find a pizza pan
• Fill with oil and heat to boiling
• Throw in skewers
• Take out of the pan when the smoke alarm goes off.
Actually, this is pretty close. Seems to me we could do this on the grill with less stress. I’ll have to try that some time.
