Beef Satay is gorgeous, deeply flavored thanks to the Indonesian sweet soy sauce that lends its rich color and deep flavors. Do not use any soy sauce and make sure to use sweet soy sauce, as it makes all the difference to the colour, texture and flavor. While the world tends to prefer chicken over beef, in this case, and if done right the beef wins major leagues! Give it a try..
Chicken or beef?
500g beef sirloin or ribeye
65 ml sweet soy sauce
65 ml soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
18 bamboo skewers
Soak the skewers in cold water for at least 1 1/2 hours in order not to burn on the grill.
Start by cutting the beef into small bite size pieces.
Place the meat in a bowl. Mix in the sweet soy sauce and regular soy sauce to coat the meat. Marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.
When ready to grill or BBQ, skewers the pieces on to the soaked bamboo skewers. Brush with the oil and Grill until golden brown and cooked through or pan fry until cooked to the desired doneness.
Serve immediately with Sweet Soy Dip
