Spicy Beef Satay
1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak 1" thick
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup water
Place steak in freezer 30 minutes to firm; slice into 1/4" thick
strips. In shallow glass dish, combine soy sauce, sherry, sesame
oil, onion, garlic, sugar, ginger and 1/2 tsp of the red pepper
flakes. Add beef strips; turn to coat with marinade. Cover and
refrigerate 2 to 4 hours. Soak twenty-four 8" bamboo skewers in
water for 20 minutes. Drain beef; reserve 2 Tbl marinade. Thread
beef strips, accordion-style, on skewers.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine reserved marinade, remaining
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, the peanut butter and water. Heat over
low heat 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce is thick and warm (add more
water if necessary). Grill kabobs, on uncovered grill, over
medium-hot briquettes 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes longer.
Serve beef strips with sauce.
NOTE: Assembled kabobs may be refrigerated,
covered, 1 to 2 hours before grilling.
