Fabulous February!

Welcome to February Donabate Dexter news...

Big congratulations to Jonathan Flannery who won our Donabate Dexter/ BBQLife.ie competition with his great photo. Jonathan will be getting our fantastic BBQ box worth €100. Thank you to Leon at BBQLife.ie.

It's Lean4Life here at Donabate Dexter. We're going to be having extra lean Dexter mince in our shop and our usual low fat/high protein cuts. We especially like lean Dexter Sirloin Teriyaki skewers. Very simple and quick...

Dexter sirloin skewers


  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 15g chunk ginger , peeled and very finely grated
  • 2 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 1 tsp honey (preferably raw)
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
  • 300g  Dexter beef sirloin steak , trimmed of hard fat and cut into long, thin strips
  • STEP 1

    Put the tamari, orange juice, ginger, garlic, honey and chilli flakes in a small saucepan with 100ml cold water and bring to the boil. Cook for 3-5 mins, boiling hard until well reduced, glossy and slightly syrupy. Remove from the heat, pour into a shallow dish and leave to cool.

  • STEP 2

    Thread the beef onto 4 soaked wooden or metal skewers. Place in the marinade, turn and brush until well coated. Cover with cling film and marinate for 30 mins.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grill to high. (You could also cook the skewers on a non-stick griddle pan.) Put the skewers on a rack above a foil-lined baking tray, reserving any excess marinade. Grill the skewers close to the heat for 3-5 mins each side or until done to your liking. Brush with more marinade when they are turned. They should look sticky and glossy when cooked. Serve hot or cold with rice salad or salad.
