Beef Satay Recipe
By: Chef John "With grilling season still in full swing, you can never have enough new and exciting ways to enjoy beef. This is the main course-size version of a fabulous Thai appetizer, strips of beef marinated in Asian spices, skewered, and grilled for a truly amazing combination of flavors. I think you should try this very soon."
pound beef top sirloin steak, sliced thin across grain, about 1/8-inch thick
tablespoon grated ginger
cloves garlic, crushed
tablespoons minced onion
cup packed brown sugar
cup fish sauce
tablespoons soy sauce
tablespoons vegetable oil
tablespoons ground coriander
teaspoon cayenne pepper
rounded tbsp minced lemongrass
Place ginger, garlic, onion, brown sugar, fish sauce, vegetable oil, soy sauce, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper into a mixing bowl; whisk into a smooth marinade.
Bruise lemon grass by hitting it lightly several times with the back of a large chef's knife; mince the lemon grass and add to the marinade.
Cut beef sirloin into strips about 2 1/2 inches long and 1/8 inch thick. Thoroughly mix the beef into marinade until all beef strips are completely coated, about 1 minute. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove beef from marinade and shake off excess marinade. Thread 1/4 the meat onto each metal skewer.
Arrange skewers on the preheated grill and cook until the meat stops sticking to the grill, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip skewers over onto other side and cook until meat is well browned and shows grill marks, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Turn onto first side again and cook until meat is still slightly pink, 2 more minutes. Transfer to a platter and let skewers rest about 2 more minutes before serving.
