If using a grill, try to avoid cooking too quickly or burning. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006. Cooking time includes marinating time.
- 1 lb round steaks or 1 lb flank steak
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch chili powder
- 2 teaspoons onion salt
- 1⁄2 cup peanuts, finely crushed
- vegetable oil, for brushing
- Trim the steak of any fat and then cut into thin strips. Place in a bowl or shallow dish.
- Mix the sugar, garlic powder, spices and onion salt together. Add the crushed peanuts, then add this mixture to the steak. Mix well so that the spices are worked into the meat.
- Thread the steak onto 6 satay sticks, pushing the meat close together (almost so it resembles ribbon candy, if you can picture how that looks).
- Place in a shallow dish, cover loosely with foil and allow to marinate in a cool place for a few hours.
- Preheat the grill (or broiler). Brush the meat with a little vegetable oil and then cook over moderate heat for about 15 minutes or until evenly brown.
I made this for the Skim into Africa Challenge and took it to a potluck. I meant to take a picture, but when I went back it was gone. I really enjoyed the flavorful combination of spices. I let it sit overnight after rubbing on. Yummy!
We loved this recipe. The spices made the meat so flavorful. Will be making this more often. Thank you. Served with "Tanzanian Vegetable Rice" #310161 by Engrossed Made for the ZWT 4 The Mamma Mias!
I LOVED this. it reminded me of being back in nigeria where they sell suya on the side of the road. It was delicious.
