( for frying)
- Depending on your steak, cut into chunks and leave in a marinade, or use as it is.
- Mix the ketchup, mustard and soy sauce together. Thread the meat chunks on the skewers, and drench on both sides in the ketchup mixture. Cover, and leave for a while in the fridge.
- Boil the potato chunks until tender.
- In the meantime, slice the cabbage. I used 1 baby cabbage because it is easier to work with, and I used a mandolin to slice it really fine.
- Chop 3 tablespoons green pepper finely (about 1/3 pepper).
- Drain the potato chunks, add 2 t milk to start with, and mash. Add extra teaspoon milk if too dry.
- Mix all the vegetables (including the mash) in a large bowl, and mix in the oregano. Add salt to taste: with sea salt flakes you need less than with fine table salt. Mix in the garlic and pepper.
- Whisk the egg briefly and add. Mix until you have a mixture which just hold together. If really too dry, add a teaspoon of milk.
- Use a pan, pref non-stick, melt the butter and oil over quite high heat, form 4 large flat patties, and fry. Lower the heat or they will burn.
- Once the patties slightly hold their shape (they won't be completely firm), turn over with a large spatula. They should be browned at the edges, but not fried to death. Remove and keep warm.
- The meat skewers: heat your grill to high. Take skewers out of the sauce, put on a grid with a pan beneath them, and grill until done. You need to turn them once or twice.
- Warm the leftover sauce, and use to spoon over the skewers once done. (Can be done on an outside grill or in a hot oven).
- Serve the skewers on the patties, with the patties on a pita bread or toasted panini, or on toasted bread or any bread you like, or even as a kind of hamburger.
- To serve as a main dish, add a tomato-cucumber salsa and corn on the cob -- or similar.
