  • 450g (1lb) Welsh Beef rump steaks, cut into chunky cubes

For the ‘Christmas Cake’ Glaze:

  • 90ml (6tbsp) Apricot jam
  • 2tbsp Brandy
  • 1 Orange, rind removed and use
  • 2.5ml (½tsp) Mixed spice

For the Christmas Slaw:

  • 1 Orange, juice removed and used
  • 1 Fig very finely chopped
  • 3 Dried apricots, very finely chopped
  • 2tbsp Raisins – soaked in 15ml (1tbsp) brandy. This is a seasonal option!
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and cut into thin sticks
  • 1 Red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ Red cabbage, thinly shredded
  • 25g (1oz) Flaked almonds


  1. Thread 3-4 pieces of Welsh Beef onto long metal or (pre-soaked in water) wooden skewers.
  2. Make ‘Christmas Cake’ Glaze: Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the skewers onto a grill pan and cook under a hot preheated grill for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Half way through the cooking time brush the skewers liberally with glaze, and again towards the end of cooking.
  4. Make the Christmas Slaw: Place all the ingredients into a large bowl & mix well together.
  5. Serve the skewers with a heap of slaw – any leftover glaze can be boiled in a pan rapidly for a few minutes & served as a dipping ‘jam’.
