Beef Satay

WHAT IS SATAY?

Satay is grilled meat that has typically been skewered and is served with a dipping sauce. Popular throughout Southeast Asia, there are slight differences in flavor between Indonesian, Malaysian and Thai satay recipes.

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that satay runs some pretty close parallels to Japanese yakitori.

Now, satay can be made with many different proteins. Chicken satay and satay beef are two of the most popular versions – however it can also be prepared with fish, mutton or even tofu. 

But our favorite part of any satay is the dipping sauce!

 

THIS BEEF SATAY RECIPE HAS THE BEST PEANUT SAUCE

Aside from the delicious, tender meat, the main source of flavor in these skewers comes from the satay sauce.

We’ve modeled our peanut sauce on the classic satay sauces of Southeast Asia. Contributing to the salty, sweet, sour and garden fresh flavor notes are things like lemongrass, shallots, galangal, tamarind and sambal. Oh yeah… and of course peanuts and chunky peanut butter.

For step by step instructions and ingredient quantities, check out the Ingredients tab on this page.

We think, aside from the outrageous flavor of this beef satay, you’re going to love how easy it is to make at home!

 

HOW TO MAKE BEEF SATAY IN A RICE COOKER

Now, here’s something you’re probably not used to hearing when making beef satay: no charcoal grill, no problem!

That’s right. We’ll be using our rice cooker to make both this satay beef AND rice all at the same time. 

You see, your Tiger rice cooker comes equipped with a tacook cooking plate. Therefore, when you use the Synchro-Cooking setting, your rice will steam to perfection in your multicooker’s inner pot – and the vapor that is produced cooks your beef in the plate above. 

It’s a little bit of magic and a whole lot of science! But how it happens is less important than how it tastes.

And in the case of this beef satay, we’d rate the flavor at 11 out of 10, ha!

Enjoy!
