We love satay and this is the first time I did not have to 'sweat' over the sauce. I have tried various recipes but they just don't measure up, but this is good . Satay will now make a more regular appearance on our table.

Chicken n Beef Satay
1 pc chicken breast without skin
2 pcs beef sirloin
24 satay sticks(soaked in water overnight)

Marinating sauce:
2 tsp cumin powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp tumeric powder
1 stalk lemon grass (chopped finely)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sweet Fruit chutney
3 tbsp sugar

1. Mixed marinating sauce together.
2. Slice meat and marinate in the sauce for at least 4 hours (overnight is better).
3. Stick marinated meat on skewers.
4. Barbecue till meat is cooked.

Peanut Sauce ingredients:
150g ground nuts
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
70ml cooking oil
100ml coconut milk

Rempah ingredients:
8 dried chillies(soak in water)
5 shallots
4 cloves of garlic
1 stalk lemon grass
1 inch of fresh tumeric (or substitute with tumeric powder)
3 tbsp coriander powder
1-1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp belachan

1. Dry fry groundnuts until brown.
2. Cool, skin and pound coarsely. Set aside.
3. All the other ingredients and blend together into a smooth paste. Set aside.
4. Heat up wok with cooking oil and add rempah and 50ml coconut milk and fry till fragrant.
5. Add remaining milk, sugar and salt to mix (LOW HEAT)
6. Add groundnuts to mix well.
7. Turn off heat.

Note :For added flavour and sweetness, use ripe pineapple or a can of pineapple and roughly blend it. Add to Satay sauce.

Tip : The satay will taste much better if marinated overnight. I buy whole spices and grind them fresh - the spices smells much more fragrant. Ground spices does not keep well.

See my ramblings for comment.

Sinner/Redneck: Wow, this satay looks very professional. We had a big as BBQ last night and your satays would have been perfect! Haha, my friend made some, and the kids just love it...I always make spare satay sauce if I can bring myself out of laziness to do them, and freeze them...they keep well...
Our new stainless steel BBQ is being put to good use..sigh, now for the scrubbing!!!

Hi Lady L,
We love our satay during the summer months. Just last week, Redneck strung up 1.5kg of satays. It is frozen for that instant snack when the weather is fine and not blowing a gale. Satay and a bottle of bubbly. Bliss...
I too freeze the sauce in ice cubes !
