Steak and Prawns with Mango Chutney
2 cuts of beef (your choice)
12 large uncooked shrimp
1 large mango - peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper - seeded and chopped
1 can chunked pineapple
1/2 small red onion - finely chopped
grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 - 1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
*red pepper flakes
*1/4 cup golden raisins
Combine the mango, onion, bell pepper, orange juice, fresh ginger, sugar, vinegar, salt and the juice from a can of pineapple (you can add some of the chunks if you want) in a medium pot and heat over medium heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring regularly until bell pepper is soft and the chutney has a gooey consistency. Add a bit of black pepper near the end. If it seems too thick add a little more orange juice or water. If you like a spicy chutney season with red pepper flakes and curry. For more texture and body throw in the raisins at the beginning.
2 minutes before the chutney is done cooking, add the shrimp and continue stirring just until they turn pink.
Serve over lightly seasoned steak with a side of garlic mashed potatoes!
