Having spent some time out in Malaysia, I soon became obsessed with satay. Delicious stuff. A really simple dish to make, but packed with flavour. As well as tasting great, it is seriously nutrient-dense: iron, zinc, B vitamins, magnesium… indulgent health!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 large sirloin steak, trimmed and diced

For the marinade

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 lime, juiced
1 lemongrass stalk, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 teaspoons light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

For the dipping sauce

Quantity Ingredient
1 heaped tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 lemongrass stalk, very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon chinese five-spice powder
2 teaspoons light soy sauce
3 tablespoons coconut milk

Method

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Add the steak and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 3–4 hours, ideally overnight.
  2. When ready to cook, combine all the dipping sauce ingredients with 1 tablespoon water and mix well. (You may find that mixing the peanut butter and spices together first and adding the liquids a little at a time, mixing well between additions, will give you a better texture.) Set aside.
  3. Remove the beef from the marinade and thread the chunks onto some skewers.
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay the beef skewers on it. Cook under a hot grill (broiler) for 15 minutes, turning regularly. Serve with the dipping sauce.
