12 skewers


Chocolate Sauce: 
Beef Brochette:


Special equipment: 12 (6-inch) wooden skewers, soaked in water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

To make the chocolate sauce: Heat the oil in a medium saucepot over medium heat. Sweat the shallots and garlic until aromatic. Add the chipotles and cook until the adobo sauce has darkened. Add the port and cook down until reduced by 2/3. Add the red wine and balsamic vinegar, and reduce by half. Add the beef stock, chile powder, coriander, and nutmeg. Simmer and reduce down by 1/3. Stir in the grated chocolate. If the sauce is thin, mix the cornstarch with some water and whisk in a bit at a time until the sauce is thickened. You may not need all of the cornstarch slurry. Taste the sauce and season with salt, and pepper. Set the mixture aside and keep warm. 

Season the beef cubes with the steak seasoning. Thread the skewers in this order: onion-beef-apricot-onion. Roast the skewers in the oven for 8 minutes. Top each skewer with a piece of Taleggio cheese and roast in the oven for another 2 minutes. 

Serve the skewers with the chocolate sauce.
