Step 1

Soak the skewers for at least 30 minutes totally submerged in water before using it to prevent burns.

Step 2

Heat the oven to 450°F. Lightly spray or oil baking sheet or roasting pan to prevent the beef from sticking to the pan

Step 3

In a medium bowl, mix garlic powder, onion power, smoked paprika, white pepper, cayenne pepper, hot ground pepper and bouillon/maggi. Place it on a plate , Set aside.

Step 4

Peel roasted peanuts, and then grind in a coffee grinder with skin on, until finely crushed. Do not grind the peanuts into paste.

Step 5

Add the ground peanuts into spice mixture.

Step 6

Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel. You may want to have a completely dry steak before cooking. Slice the steak into a diagonal medium thin shape.

Step 7

Thread the steaks onto the skewers about 4 per skewer. Making sure the skewer is fully covered with slices of meat

Step 8

Rub the steak skewer with spice mixture; on both sides. Line a roasting or baking sheet with foil paper. Place skewers on cookie sheet, then place on the roasting pan or baking sheet. (Refer to the Note below for grilling option).

Step 9

Drizzle with oil and bake on for about 12-15 minutes.

Step 10

Optional -Towards the last 3 minutes of baking switch from baking to broiler setting. To get a nice crisp brown on the outside.

Step 11

Serve warm

NOTE: I would imagine that these would work beautifully grilled over a charcoal grill, which is how I plan to make it during the hot months.
