Method

  1. The first thing requiring attention here is the necessity to marinate the meat overnight. Cut 500 g of beef rump into small pieces. Prepare a fine paste by pounding together a 2 cm piece of peeled fresh turmeric, a 2 cm piece of peeled zedoary, 2 dried red chillies, 1 stalk of lemongrass and 2 thin slices of peeled galangal. Lightly roast 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds and 1 teaspoon of aniseed, blend to a fine powder and add to the mix. Finally, mix the marinade with 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon tamarind water and 2 tablespoons peanut oil. Thoroughly mix this paste with the beef and leave to marinate overnight. The next day, thread the meat onto skewers and grill over a charcoal fire. Baste with a mixture of 3 tablespoons of coconut milk mixed with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil as the skewers are turned over the grill. Cook until browned.

  2. The satays are traditionally accompanied by a peanut dipping sauce. Grind 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds and 1 teaspoon of aniseed to a fine powder. Combine with a smooth fragrant paste made of 10 deseeded dried red chillies, 3 garlic cloves, 8 red Asian shallots, 1 teaspoon of roasted blachan, 2 candlenuts and 1 stalk of lemongrass. Fry the paste over medium heat with a couple of tablespoons of peanut oil for about 15 minutes until well cooked and aromatic. Then stir in 1/2 cupful of roasted peanuts that have been roughly crushed, 4 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of salt. Cook for a couple of minutes, then gradually add a cupful of fresh coconut milk and 1/2 cupful of tamarind water. Simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce is quite thick. Serve warm or at room temperature.
