How to cook

Prepare the skewers

  • Soak 20-30 bamboo skewers in water for at least 1 hour - this will allow the skewers to withstand the heat from grilling.

Marinate the beef

  • Blend the shallot, garlic, lemongrass, chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, sugar, salt and oil together.
  • Mix in the beef cubes to marinate for at least 6 hours - overnight would be the best.

Prepare the peanut sauce

  • Blend the galangal, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, chilli powder, coriander powder, water, cumin powder, sugar, salt and oil together to form the peanut sauce spice blend.
  • Stir-fry the spice blend in a non-stick frying pan until fragrant and the oil is slightly separated from the paste.
  • Mix in the tamarind juice, peanuts and water to create the peanut sauce.
  • Bring the peanut sauce mixture to a quick boil before turning the heat to low, then simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
  • Season with sugar and salt to taste and set aside.

Start cooking

  • Thread 4-6 pieces of the beef onto the bamboo skewers.
  • Grill the beef satay skewers for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the meat is fully cooked and the surface is nicely charred on both sides.
  • Baste and brush with some oil while grilling.
  • Once the beef satay is cooked, serve it with the peanut sauce, raw red onions, cucumber and ketupat (optional).
