GETTING READY

1. Drain the juice of the pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup.

2. Refrigerate pineapple chunks until required.

3. In a bowl, combine the pineapple liquid with soy sauce, sherry, honey, ginger and garlic. Stir to blend well.

4. Place the meat, mushrooms, onions and peppers in a non-metallic dish. Pour the marinade on top.

6. Season 8 bamboo skewers in lukewarm water for at least 30 minutes or use metal ones.

7. Prepare a barbecue or preheat the broiler or grill.

9. Thread beef, pineapple chunks and vegetables alternately on skewers, allowing 2 pieces of meat for each skewer.

10. Brush with marinade and season lightly with salt and pepper if you like.

11. Grill or broil 3 inches from heat source for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, turning and basting frequently until meat is done to preferred degree of doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°) and vegetables are lightly charred.

12. Blend the cornstarch into remaining marinade and heat, stirring constantly until the sauce it thick.
